Superman's stories are written as such that Superman's power isn't even the issue. They are more about the trials of being an alien/different, being a superhero, being really powerful and how to use that power, how people react to that power, having the weight of the entire world on your shoulders, etc.

A good Superman story tackles the social and moral issues that are bound to arise when you are basically a living god and the impact of your decisions as a superbeing on those around you, especially those you care about most.

Also, most of the enemies Superman has to fight can beat the living **** out of him. Look up Doomsday, Parasite, Darkseid, Metallo, Bizarro, and Mongul. Others, like Lex Luthor and Brainiac, have outsmarted Superman, often tricking him into defeating himself or by having two schemes going at once, one that Superman will foil that they don't actually care about, and one they actually wanted to primarily accomplish.

and Black Adam (on occasions) and basically every villain Superman's fought. They always have the upper hand (even through sheer strength) at some point.

congratulations, you are the 99%

People that haven't read him immediately assume he's boring because he was made incredibly powerful, far from the most powerful beings in the DCU (hell, even Martian Manhunter is stronger), and that's all they know and care about the character. People prefer Batman because he's human and all plebs will side with him in a fight between the two because man wins against god yey for us, even if it's between a man that can move planets and a ninja. A tactically genius ninja and close to the peak of humanity, mind you, but still just human.

Okay, I'm not ranting anymore. It's your opinion. I have mine. Good day

thank you

I was worried I was the only person on FunnyJunk who liked Superman
User avatar #93 to #91 - payseht (07/06/2013) [-]
I feel like the only person that liked Man of Steel, besides Angry Joe... I'm going to watch Man of Steel for the 4th time in a few minutes.

I loved Man of Steel

the only problems I had with it were: Superman's suit (im not saying bring back the red overpants, but make the suit a lighter blue, and have some sort of red belt, like his New 52 suit)
And I also didn't care for the lack of Clark Kent, I don't know why, but it just bugged me that he was just Superman the entire time

still, its like he has no limits when it comes to power. Green lantern's power ring uses willpower which there is a limit to. Superman can punch a guy to to smithereens no problem and doesn't he age super slow?

I've read his lore, he's still boring, that's all I got to say, not starting nothing, just saying.

Not alone in fact a very popular thought. One that I believe my self. But this was not the place to leave a opinionated comment on the matter. Such the reason you got red thumbed.

That's true but his inspired some pretty good matchbox 20 and 3 doors down lyrics.
