We all know what Superman stands for. Now DC has updated the iconic superhero’s motto: Superman stands for “truth, justice and a better tomorrow.”
A motto for everyone. Everything #Superman is about.

Up until now Superman’s mission statement has been about “truth, justice, and the American Way,” a slogan that originated not in the comics but in radio serials in the 1940s. DC Chief Creative Officer and Publisher Jim Lee announced the adjusted motto Saturday at DC Fandome, an online event revealing news, trailers and first look videos at forthcoming films, TV shows and games.
The last son of Krypton currently appears on screen in acclaimed TV show Superman & Lois, and has been played on the big screen recently by Henry Cavill.
