It’s a bird…It’s a plane…It’s Superman!
With a nod to the past and an eye toward the future, it was announced yesterday at DC FanDome that Superman’s motto is evolving to “Truth, Justice and a Better Tomorrow.”
“Superman’s new motto of ‘Truth, Justice and a Better Tomorrow’ will better reflect the global storylines that we are telling across DC and to honor the character’s incredible legacy of over 80 years of building a better world,” said DC Chief Creative Officer and Publisher Jim Lee. “Superman has long been a symbol of hope who inspires people from around the world, and it is that optimism and hope that powers him forward with this new mission statement.”
The new motto, which will be used in main continuity for Clark Kent’s Superman, will be featured across all mediums including comic books, film, TV, video games and more. As comic book fans already know, the DC Multiverse has featured multiple Supermen over the years, sometimes even at the same time. For more information on the DC Multiverse, visit dccomics.com.
In honor of the real-world superheroes who are striving to make this world a better place, the next generation of Superman characters like Jon Kent will be fighting for “Truth, Justice and a Better World”, as first introduced in SUPERMAN: SON OF KAL-EL #1.
