Quentin tarantino on superman

Earlier today I asked who the best Superhero is. Many had interesting responses. Then I got reminded of Bill’s monologue about Superman in Kill Bill Vol 2.
Bill: “Superman didn’t become Superman. Superman was born Superman. When Superman wakes up in the morning, he’s Superman. His alter ego is Clark Kent. His outfit with the big red “S”, that’s the blanket he was wrapped in as a baby when the Kents found him. Those are his clothes. What Kent wears – the glasses, the business suit – that’s the costume. That’s the costume Superman wears to blend in with us. Clark Kent is how Superman views us. And what are the characteristics of Clark Kent. He’s weak… he’s unsure of himself… he’s a coward. Clark Kent is Superman’s critique on the whole human race.”
For me, Superman is the best Superhero. He can fly, he doesn’t need any gadgets to make he stronger. He fast, strong, powerful, except that he wears underpants on top of his clothes.
