I can't stand idly by and watch us stumble into the madness of possible nuclear destruction. So I've come to a decision. I'm going to do what our governments have been unwilling or unable to do. Effective immediately, I'm going to rid our planet of all nuclear weapons.
Tyrannical! Real benevolent dictator stuff, this, and it seems at odd with Truth, Justice and the American Way. Investing such power in the hands of an individual seems contrary to the ideals of American democracy that Superman is supposed to support! Odd stuff, no wonder the film would be panned by critics!
