I know it may still be too early to tell.....thus I remain as open minded and optimistic as I can be.
With all that said i think you don't like golden age Superman very much, i mean, Clark Kent was the disguise during that era, the new superman origin with Superman impulsive and behaving like he is right now, all that was based from the golden age superman stories
