At the gym I use, I pass a promotional poster that shows a group of people on life cycles. The caption reads "A Better Us." Every time I see it, I wonder, "Is this Ok?" "us" is the object form of "we." Is there an implied missing part that Makes "us" ok?
Provide the appropriate transitive verb of your choice with the phrase as its object:
Build a better us
Behold a better us
Exercise makes a better us
But bear in mind that even as the complement of a copulative verb, we prefer the objective case when strict application of grammar rules requires the nominative. Must people would say
This is a better us
and not "a better we," just as they would say when the gang comes back
instead of "It's we.
