Truth, Justice and (Fill in the Blank) - New York Times

Erik Lundegaard on the familiar phrase describing Superman's mission, to fight for "truth, justice and the American way." He reveals it didn't start out that way: "Some people are now objecting to the fact that 'Superman Returns' omits the phrase. Perry White asks his reporters to find out more about the Man of Steel after his five-year absence. 'Does he still stand for truth, justice, all that stuff?' he says. Right-wing blogs are already red-faced at the slight.

There's no reason to be upset. Superman is right back where he began: fighting a never-ending battle for truth and justice. That should be enough to occupy any man. Even a Superman."
