    The problem is, unrestricted time travel is a major story-breaker power. How do you create challenges for a hero who can just undo all his mistakes, rewind time every time things don't go his way, and retry things over and over unlimited times until he gets everything right? Even the Flash doesn't do that ever since Flashpoint.

    In the Silver Age, this wasn't a problem since Superman explicitly couldn't change the past, so time travel was only useful for gathering intel. Nowadays, people even change the past without going back in time.

You just answered your own question.
