I'll tell you my secret because I know you'll keep it.
I am not as cynical as people think I am. Well I am but I still believe in things. Things like magic and dreams and hope. Mostly I believe in hope. I watch a movie like "Man of Steel" and I think, "Yes, that's what we need for all of humanity to come together and realize that we all need each other." We need someone like Superman to help us find the better angels of our nature.
I love Batman and all his darkness and pain because he is all of us, he is me. He is human. But I want to be more. I want to be better than human. Better than we've been so far.
You won't tell anyone my secret will you? I knew I could trust you.
