This article pertains to a Pure Good with more than one version who is Pure Good!

My father believed that if the world found out who I really was, they'd reject me…out of fear. I let my father die because I trusted him. Because he was convinced that I had to wait, that the world was not ready. What do you think?
~ Superman

Clark Joseph Kent (born as Kal-El), also better known as Superman, is one of the main characters of the DC Extended Universe. He serves as the titular main protagonist of Man of Steel, one of the two titular protagonists (alongside Batman) of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice, the posthumous protagonist of Suicide Squad, the deuteragonist of Justice League and its director's cut Zack Snyder's Justice League, the cameo protagonist in Shazam! and Peacemaker and mentioned protagonist in The Suicide Squad.

He was portrayed by Henry Cavill.

What Makes Him Pure Good?

  • He was never willingly evil so he isn’t On & Off or Fallen as he had been unwillingly subjugated by the Anti-Life Equation that turned him into the dreaded lieutenant of Darkseid, not to mention the fact that Superman resisted the corruption until the death of Lois Lane made him understandably unhinged with grief and naively mistrusting of Batman, exerting all the effort he could to try and stop it. When resurrected by the Justice League, he was brought back as a psychotic serial killer against his will, only for Lois' intervention to make his psyche revert to its typical pleasant state.
  • Dedicates his time to saving innocent lives without hesitation and out of the kindness of his heart.
  • When he was young, he saved children from the bus from preventing them getting drowned, even saving a kid who bullies him often, even becoming friends after that.
  • He willingly surrendered himself to the Sword of Rao in order to save humanity, rebelling against them when he learned they would try to exterminate humanity either way.
  • He saw Dru-Zod menacing Martha and gave him what he deserved, and nothing in excess.
  • He destroyed the dark vessel intended to terraform Earth.
  • He is not willing to kill unless it is necessary as he felt remorse after killing Dru-Zod.
  • He cared about Lois and has frequently proven his sincere love for her.
  • He saved a girl inside a factory from being immolated at a Day of the Dead party.
  • He saved an otherwise doomed rocket from destruction.
  • He felt immense remorse for not foreseeing the Capitol bombing and exiled himself even though it wasn't his fault.
  • He saved Lex Luthor from being killed by Doomsday, despite the former being the one who captured his mother Martha and almost forced him to kill Batman and created Doomsday in the first place.
  • He sacrificed himself to stop Doomsday, proving himself to be a selfless bringer of hope, and dis-proving everyone's reasoning for demonizing him.
  • He swore he would not waste the second chance given to him by the Justice League and made haste to Porzanhov to help them defeat Steppenwolf.
  • He thanks Bruce for helping his mother keep the Kents' farm.
  • He happily accepted Billy's invitation to lunch with him and Freddy at school.
  • He tried to intervene at Coverdale Ranch only for Peacekeeper to proclaim his timing is poor, yet the intention counts.


  • According to the nightmares of the future for Superman, he joins Darkseid over losing Lois Lane and the influence of Anti-Life, which could make him a Fallen Hero; however he hasn't arrived to change in Moral Scaling yet, making him currently stable on the Pure Good morality scaling.
    • Although it can also be argued that Superman actually had no moral agency whatsoever, since he was subjugated to the Anti-Life Equation that is infamous for eradicating free will, and Lois' death stopped him from having the willpower to stop it from overwhelming his senses as Darkseid came to him directly when he was openly grieving. Just as Lois had comforted him over his race's obliteration when no one else did, Darkseid comforted him over losing his girl when no one else did, and again, that is excluding the significant moral agency problem.
