Another case of me liking the idea and being disappointed in my own execution.

I altered my approach to the idea multiple times and just never really got it to sing for me. I liked the idea Superman would willingly stay in jail to respect the law and a small town policed department and that that patience would expire when the chance to save a life presented itself. That seemed honest to Superman’s character.

Unfortunately, a concept does not a story make and even though I just couldn’t massage the concept, I also was unwilling to give it up. An extra week or so of working it, I think I could be a lot more pleased.
