Icons are a reflection of what we value as a society; in our modern culture we appreciate the ostentatious lifestyles of brands and celebrities more so than traditional social values. The Reflection of Superman gives a modern depiction of the once civic-minded superhero; Superman is caught in a kiss with himself. We are shown that role models are no longer those who are altruistic, but rather are self-gratifying narcissists. This new hero is selfish, which we should embrace with delight.
