"Superman's official motto has been changed after more than 80 years"

Well, not exactly... more like seven months. The most recent time was earlier this year:

The phrase "Truth, Tolerance, and Justice" is actually a tribute to the 1948 Superman film serial. Here are some other changes from over the years...

"Truth and Justice" - Max Fleisher cartoons

"Truth, Justice and the American Way" - Radio and television show.

"Truth, Justice and Peace for all Mankind" - Superfriends

"Truth, Justice and Freedom" - The New Adventures of Superman

"Truth, Justice... and all that other stuff" - Superman Returns (2006) - That one kicked up a stink!

About time.  Superman is an alien and I always pictured him as above any form of nationalisms.

This new motto is by far the best, most fitting ever.

"Truth, Justice and Freedom" is the one that sings with me. But "Truth, Justice and a Better Tomorrow" ain't bad.

Then there's this take (copied from Tony Isabella, who copied it from somewhere else):

This seems as good of a place as any to post a link to Amber Ruffin's take on the new Superman coming out.

I meant "coming out as bi", not a new Superman movie.

Loved that Ruffin video, and I really like that new slogan, too.

"Truth, Justice and a Better Tomorrow" works for me, as does the Ruffin video.
