This panel from ALL-STAR SUPERMAN is something I return to again and again. It encompasses everything about both Lex Luthor and Superman that you need to know. Luthor, the man who holds himself above everyone, finally realizes that we’re all there is. We are all that matters. The power of that revelation brings him to knees and moves him to tears. Superman lives with this information everyday. And as overpowering as the thought may be at times, he does the right thing over and over again and quietly urges us to so the same. And, most importantly, he never gives up on us… any of us.
From All-Star Superman 12 by Grant Morrison and Frank Quitely.
