The idea that Superman or any superhero would work for truth and justice is anathema to our capitalist society in a way that borders on un-American. With a skillset like his, Clark Kent should be working in the private sector. As Heath Ledger’s Joker put it, “when you’re good at something, never do it for free.”
Counterpoint: But the key under pinning of a capitalistic society is the freedom to enter into any bargain willingly and sell your product for whatever price you wish / can find a buyer for. Superman is content to sell his service for the low price of personal satisfaction gained through philanthropy.

So many people ask me about it but honestly I don’t know. Shit just became a habit. But my palms do itch a lot, I swear they do. So I got tired of scratching them and just went to rubbing my hands…They itch a lot, man. So I just got tired of scratching them and just went to rubbing my hands. But it just became a habit and it’s like I’m known for the shit. I’m like “Damn, I’m doing this shit that much that people are recognizing it? But then I found myself doing it so now I’m like, Fuck it, I’m going to keep doing it…I really wanted to let them know that at the end of the day, it’s really about money. Don’t get it twisted. I’m a hard worker and everything with me is, if I work hard I should get paid for it. Everything with me, I try to symbolize something flashy like jewelry or a car. The rubbing hands is a symbol of hustling, so it goes back to the money. Cite Arrow Bryan “Baby”/”Birdman”/”Stunna” Williams explains the #birdmanhandrub (via howtotalktogirlsatparties)
