Man of Steel opened to a triumphant box office take over the past weekend. Though there are still some questions lingering about the end of the movie. (If you haven't seen Man of Steel, this might be a good time to stop reading.) At the end of Man of Steel, Superman and Zod stage a long and very costly battle that leaves much of Metropolis in ruins. Here, to talk about what it was like in Metropolis on that day, we interviewed a resident of Metropolis, U.S.A.

It's a Bird. It's a Plane. It's Super-Immigrant.

Everyone ultimately wants a Superman on their side. The INS even has a citizenship category for that -- Alien of Extraordinary Ability or the O visa. The question is, does America want to legalize the not-so-supermen and women?

Although our nation remains intensely divided, we can all look up to Superman as what we can, and perhaps should be. Superman's greatness lies in his humility.

Does 'Superman' Still Hold Up?

Mike Ryan | Posted 08.13.2013 | Entertainment
Mike Ryan

In today's movies, my reaction to seeing entire cities destroyed while superheroes fight is to shrug. That doesn't seem right. I feel that I should be offended, or at least disturbed -- but I've seen it so many times now that I just don't care. We've raised the stakes so high, they've effectively lost their meaning. How much more destruction can the next villain cause that this last one didn't? As an audience member trying to relate to what's happening onscreen, there's a point where I think, Dead is dead. How much more dead can I be?
