Hey, remember the first time you saw Superman flying? It could have been in the Christopher Reeve Superman films, the Super Friends cartoon, Superman: The Animated Series, or heck, maybe even in a comic book.

Whatever the case, the reaction from kids tends to be universal: It's the best thing they've ever seen. Eventually those people become grown-ups who maybe like other superheroes more or stop caring about superheroes at all, but it's worth being reminded of the effect seeing a handsome guy in a blue suit blast through the sky can have on an impressionable mind. It's all in the face of a 16-month-old boy seeing a scene from Man of Steel for the first time in the video after the jump.

 

 

So listen: We can have our disagreements. We can argue all day and all night about whether Man of Steel really honored the character of Superman, or whether it was too dark.

But that moment, for that kid? Let's agree that is pretty dang great.
