It's exclusively a Superman fan/reader issue. Some fear the Silver Age like Batman fans used to fear the 1966 show. They believe that somehow, if Superman is allow to really flex his muscles, it will spell doom as opposed to being entertaining. It's doesn't make much sense at the end of the day, but eventually Superman will get back and lads will realize there was nothing to worry about.

Do you know why we don't have the Pre-Crisis Superman anymore? He was boring. DC realized this so rebooted the entire DC universe and de-powered him. After 30+ years, he would have been back by now and he hasn't because DC knows a hero that can blow out an entire solar system with a sneeze doesn't work anymore and never will again.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
