You said accept first and then you said just jump into the arguments. So I will just accept in case I'm not meant to provide arguments.

The iconic symbol on his chest is instantly recognizable. It"s almost as recognizable as the American dollar sign, or the yin and yang. When villains see the big S emboldened in red and yellow, they know that their days are numbered and Superman means business.
When they shoot at him, they shoot for the chest, and the S is impenetrable. The S is not just an icon for a superhero, it"s the icon for character"s meaning and what he stands for. Whether it"s S for Superman, or S the house of El family crest, The big red S means something" the ultimate symbol of hope.

No matter what you"ve done, no matter who you are, Superman fights for you. He"ll take a cannonball to the face, he"ll stare down an army of evil rulers if he can help preserve you, and that"s a rule he stands by through and through. Whether you"re the president, a mobster, a down right bastard or an average joe in the wrong place at the wrong time, Superman will help you and ensure your safety. To quote Superman in the Shazam cartoon "I fight for people who can"t fight for themselves!"

His costume is the definition of convenience. His classic costume, anyway. Based on the circus performers of the early twentieth century, Superman"s entire costume has short sleeves, is skin tight, and can go under his clothing just in case he needs to change, while hiding his identity. He invented the ripping the shirt open to reveal the symbol that Spider-Man later adapted. And he was the first to realize his costume could make for a good second layer, something Spider-Man later adapted. But deep down keeping his costume under his clothing is symbolic that no matter how much he pretends to be one of us, he"s always Superman. He can"t change or hide that.

The ultimate gift and curse of Superman"s supreme power is that he"ll basically outlive everyone he loves. Every woman he falls for will die and he won"t. He"ll likely be the last being on the planet and see the end of time. It"s what makes him so godly and so utterly fascinating.

Before Spider-Man held ours hands through Stan Lee"s adage, Superman realized first that he had amazing power and had to approach it with immense responsibility. Superman walks on egg shells on the planet, and he uses his powers with great responsibility that benefits those around him. He knows how to use his gifts to help and to hurt, and most often he chooses to help.

He has influenced everyone! Mighty Mouse, Underdog, Supreme, Centurion, Steel, Superboy, Supergirl, Super Bugs, Super Grover, Sentry, Gladiator, Apollo, Omni-man, Invincible, Majestic, Son Goku from Dragon Ball Z (Yes, you read that right!), Ultraman, Hyperion, Astonish-man, Alpha One, The Plutonian, Samaritan; he"s inspired celebrities like Bon Jovi, Shaquille O"Neal, Muhammad Ali, Nic Cage named his son Kal El, did you ever put a towel around you neck and pretend to be a superhero? That"s because of Superman.

Superman has the ability to hide among us and in many incarnations it"s stated he has the ability to change vocal functions and posture to where the upright and bold Superman can"t be singled out from the insignificant slumping Clark Kent. Clark Kent is a character Kal El must play every day and as a man he"s often meek, inconspicuous and ignored. In "Birthright" his act is so good he"s excluded from an office gathering, and in "Superman Returns" he"s often ignored by the people around him.

Superman hopes to use his powers to benefit mankind and the world, and he does so at the cost of his own sanity and life a hundred times over. Superman believes if he uses his powers and uses them wisely, he can help others at no thought of his own well being.

Superman can be a leader and a follower as has been witnessed countless times. In Justice League we"ve seen him lead the team in to hell and find the capability to be a team member and take commands by others. Superman is hardly anti-social and most times can inspire many to work with him in bringing down evil and horrific menaces to the galaxy and the planet.

For all of the reasons above I reject the resolution that Superman sucks.
