Default Re: How should Superman fight?

Superman's fighting skills should be : Punches, kicks (a la soccer or football. no fancy stuff), spear tackle (like Hound 55 wrote), grappling, slams and throws. Let's not forget a healthy mix of heat vision and/or superbreath.

I see Superman as a combination of a brawler/streetfighter/wrestler.

"There’s no need to "modernize" Superman in order for the character to be appealing to the new generation. Superman is not a brooding angst ridden conflicted hero. He is a beacon of hope and his mission is to fight for Truth, Justice and the American way. Superman doesn’t need to wear an armor suit. He’s THE Man of Steel. There’s no need to “modernize” the suit for it to be more “dark” and “edgy”. If today’s generation can’t accept the character’s roots and essence, then they’re not true fans."
