    Superman is suppose to be their lead character and one of the major reasons for the DCnU. Instead of diffusing the situation between heroes, they lower him to a muscle head paranoid, that the big bad Luthor might be coming after him. Tell him to take off the super suit cause he is not worthy!

Yes, I can't disagree with the spirit of your post, Superman in particular was odd. This is more than just him being younger than in previous years it's actually a page one rewrite. Maybe this bolshy attitude he has is a result of the abscence of Ma & Pa Kents influence but his character lacks any real intelligence or inspitational qualities to ever convince that he's supposed to be the hero people, and other heroes, look up to. The art this issue was of course excellent and the respect given to Superman and his power was appreciated but as to the story.... well, there isn't one!
I do hope this pervasive sense of mistrust and paranoia creeping through the book is a plot element, yes the public are concerned about superheoroes but in the DCU Superheroes were/are often treated as celebrities, with a degree of awe and deference. The strength of the fear and mistrust makes me wonder if this is going to be linked to Darkseid's influence, that would be a clever and plausible lever to explain where this new status-quo in the relationship between heroes and public comes from.
I can't give this issue any more than a 5/10, even that's too generous, but it sure looked pretty....
