Subj: So do Captain America and Spiderman. It's just popularity, and fetishism.

Reply Subj: But then Superman has always had the 'dial to 11 factor' which is a bit more than the conventional top tier.

And honestly, I think Superman's popularity is probably waning. Not that he's not a fantastic character, but I don't think "Superman has to be the top dog" in comics is some necessary rule that has to exist in perpetuity. I think gradually that golden calf has started to rust a bit. Change is healthy.
