I've never liked the version that can do ANYTHING. Flying around tugging planets along is bad writing to me. I didn't like the whole lifting a continent thing either.
I always have a hard time giving a crap about characters that are essentially unbeatable.
You could tone down the ridiculous stuff and still have a bad*** Superman that is a top tier superhero. I would rather see the natural implications of his powers in smaller ways.
Sounds pretty good.
First of all, Superman should be more powerful than any other Superhero on film to date.
He should not have the ability to time travel. Thats cheating.
His power capacity should be unknown as the older he gets and longer he is naturally exposed to the sun his powers slowly but surely continue to increase.
He should go up against a villian that is as or even more powerful than him.
However powerful he is, he should have to exert himself.
Snyder should check out S: TAS for tips.
Oh, and for a really cool scene, Superman should find out he doesn't need air only after running out of it while in Space.
