Brightburn, a 2019 movie is classified as Drama, Horror, Mystery on IMDb.

However, the summary of the movie is as follows:

What if a child from another world crash-landed on Earth, but instead of becoming a hero to mankind, he proved to be something far more sinister?

The movie basically revolves around a spaceship crash-lands in Brightburn, Kansas on a farm and inside the ship is an infant child. The child is adopted by a couple. He finds out that he sin't of this Earth and has superpowers.

To quote The New York Times, the story basically asks the question:

What if Clark Kent had been a power-hungry sociopath whose motto wastake the world”?

This story is somewhat of a Horror- Science fiction mix. Therefore, I think we would need a tag Brightburn or Brightburn-2019 for the questions related to this movie.

  • 300 for tag creation but for creating tag wikis is different but you can still suggest an edit to them even now, that privilege just means you don’t need to suggest the edit anymore.

    Question #1. Why did Brightburn concentrate on the least interesting part of Superman's life?

  • @Valorum - Because they wanted to focus on horror. When you have an evil adult Superman, then he is just a supervillain, and that story has been done so many times besides. But by scaling it down and focusing on him terrorizing a small town, you have a typical horror movie setting.

Tags are only created when they first are used on a question. Searching for brightburn yielded 0 results, so we don't have any questions to tag with it and hence don't have that tag.

According to this stack's privileges, you only need 300 points of reputation to create a new tag. You have quite a bit more than that. You already exceed the 5000 rep points threshold to approving tag wiki edits and are on your way to becoming a trusted user.

So when you ask your questions, just add and that's all — except please, don't forget to fill in the usage guidance and tag wiki.
