"Over the years, various smart people have written about Superman as a metaphor for the Jewish immigrant or Asian American experience. I’ll take it a step further — everyone on the planet at some point feels that he or she doesn’t belong on the planet. We’re all outsiders and others.

'He is, as the saying goes, “among them but not of them,” and that can’t help but to create a certain loneliness. So asking those questions brought me to that theme, and became a launching pad to look at that theme from the perspective of various characters: the loneliness of the brightest guy in the room (the Luthors), of living a life you can’t share with others (Lisa)...it wasn’t the driving point of the story, but as subtext, it’s there.' - JMS

In the course of Forever Evil, the event that based on how long the ruddy thing has been going on for, certainly lives up to its name, we saw Ultraman invade the offices of the Daily Planet, where Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen are about the only people left.
