Abstract

What people think about Superman is that he was not real. There was no one as strong as Superman in the world. However, some people believe that what matters about Superman is he cares about everyone in the universe without exception, without judgment. The article aims to elevate Superman's values in human existence. The research focuses on the character of Clark Kent in Zack Snyder's two movies entitled Man of Steel and Justice League. Clark initially used his powers covertly to help people and prevent or thwart disasters. He is valuable to human existence in the universe. The theory used to support the analysis is Nietzsche's superhuman version; the Übermensch in English means Beyond-Man, Superman, Overman, or Superhuman. It is the concept of Nietzsche's philosophy. Nietzsche's thought on human philosophy directs us to fully love life and position humans as superhuman. The research design that is taken is qualitative research. There is one literary approach that meets the analysis, that is, the archetypal approach. The research finding is that Clark Kent, as the representation of Übermensch, is a human that sees himself as a source of value. A human who has reached Übermensch is a person who always says "yes" to everything and is ready to face challenges, who has an attitude of still affirming his life.
