I think we are all in basic agreement, and disagreeing over some smaller things. All good.

I'm not sure than Superman was meant to stay with WW for the long term--they were hoping he'd be a young fling and that he'd find Lois later. At least IMO. But maybe 4 years was too long for that. And I can't say what they were thinking for sure. These things do matter, and contribute to the problem, but I still don't see them as the real disease. From Kingdom Come to other non-Canon stories, Superman has been with Wonder Woman before. Or with other women. But the key was that he was still Superman--mature, competent, inspiring, decisive, etc...

As for whether him being a good guy is bad, no it isn't. But I'll disagree with you as to whether that makes it harder to write him. And I feel a lot of writers have backed me up on this. The consensus has always been, IMO, that Superman is harder to write than other characters, but more rewarding when you pull it off. Part of that is his power level, but another part is that he's a well-balanced guy with no obvious flaws to use as a writing crutch like Batman's dickishness, Hal's cockiness, Flash's impulsivity and immaturity, etc.

I'm with riv. Superman isn't a saint, he's a just a fundamentally decent guy. That doesn't strike me as someone hard to write.

None of these comic characters are especially deep or interesting if we're being honest.

Superman is pretty hilariously stronk and saves kittens and shit so it's fun to see people try to draw inspiration from him.

Really, the guy who moves planets and shits lasers inspires you? HAHHAHAHAHA wut the fuck I can't even.

It's dumb as fuck but still fun.

The idea is that human potential is unlimited when we reach our evolutionary peak--an inherently spiritual concept. Solar archetype.

Thats great to know.

Hahaha I don't know what's worse, you legitimately thinking you're somehow accomplishing anything or the fact that you feel the complete need to attempt to get a last word in edgewise in nearly every little spat you get into.

You are hands down one of the best worst nerds I have ever met. I fucking love you guy.
