On Friday, it was revealed Superman is getting a brand-new catchphrase, as the iconic DC Comics hero will fight for “Truth, Justice and a Better Tomorrow.” At DC FanDome, DC Chief Creative Officer and Publisher Jim Lee revealed the Man of Steel will officially be dropping the “American Way” from his motto and instead, which will be replaced by the phrase “a Better Tomorrow.” The new catchphrase better embodies the hero’s ultimate mission of making the world a better place.
Superman is one of the most recognizable pop culture figures on the planet, as he originally debuted in Action Comics #1 in 1939. The hero has always been connected to the United States, as The Man of Tomorrow crash-landed on Earth and ended up being raised in Smallville, Kansas in the United States. However, despite his longtime motto suggesting he fights for the American Way, Superman has long fought for everyone across the globe – meaning his motto hasn’t been all-encompassing as it should be. Now, Superman is officially losing “The American Way” from his iconic catchphrase. MORE DETAILS WILL BE ADDED SOON.
