All right, fair enough. I just don't see what the big deal is. It's a normal human reaction to find pleasure in both scaring others and being scared yourself. We just got done celebrating a holiday based on exactly that. I don't see what Superman gains by not sharing that common human trait.
Well, there's a difference in a fun Halloween scare and the public actually having deeply seated fears of Superman. I think he wouldn't just laugh it off if most people were legit scared of him. Now criminals, that's a different thing.
But even Batman isn't out to scare the innocent, only the guilty:
