Superman IV: The Quest for Peace is a bad movie, but it definitely has a lot to say about atomic weapons as DC’s Man of Steel destroys all nukes on the planet before fighting a silly villain named Nuclear Man created by Lex Luthor. And although it’s clear where this film and Christopher Reeve stand on nuclear warfare, Superman wasn’t always adamantly against the Bomb. Throughout his comic book history, the Man of Tomorrow championed the power of nuclear weapons. Allow me to analyze this topic in the form of an excruciatingly detailed video essay!
