    song goes on, the city gradually grows darker as the sun moves across the sky and behind clouds, corresponding with Superman’s growing discouragement. As the day comes to a close and the sun begins to set, it finally bursts through the clouds as he rescues the teenager from the bullies, signifying his renewed hope. If one hasn’t picked up on it yet, this entire music video is one giant allusion to superhero comics. So, it is no surprise that there are several references to the ‘Superman’ comics hidden within the lyrics of the song as well. “She’s watching the clouds roll by and they spell her name, like Lois Lane,” is the most obvious reference, found in the first verse of the song.

    A hero can be classified by many things. A hero can be superman, a police officer, and even your mom, but what makes a hero? Is it someone who can fly or shoot laser beams from their eyes or someone who saves a baby from a burning building? I’ll admit some of these characteristics are far-fetched since I don’t know anyone who can fly or randomly saves babies on a normal day. All heroes, including super ones, all have something in common, they're admired for their courage or an outstanding thing…

    Superman: Intentionally Made a Hero When you hear the word criminal, what is your prototype, or the best-fitting mental picture of a criminal? What comes to mind is due to the coding in a culture, or a rule-governed system of signs which are shared and used to generate and circulate meanings in and for that culture. Codes are used in order to convey meanings that constitute our cultural world, many of which are seen through television, films and other forms of media. In Season 1, Episode 7 of…
