I agree with you about Byrne having the best idea regarding Krypton. Despite being hyper advanced and knowledgeable, Kryptonians were trapped on their planet. A fate Kal-El escaped thanks to Jor-EL.

I however do not share your perception on both the costume and them insulting their reader with the "more powerful as he gets older" idea.

For the costume, I know it is a strong man outfit and I still dislike it and think we can, and should, have better.

As for the the insult to our intelligence regarding getting more powerful as a kryptonian gets older under a yellow star, I just do not see how it snaps the suspension of disbelief anymore than anything Superman regularly does. I find it FAR more insulting to my intellect to swallow that a man can push mountains with barely enough sunlight to realistically power a solar calculator (They still stupidly pretend sunlight powers his abilities). Beside, why do all life in a comic book universe has to be the same in this regard? Are we idiots to accept a man can fly? After all, that defies the laws of nature too and ask us to suspend disbelief, no?
