The fact that you used the word fearful twice in the same sentence while describing Superman should tell you why it's all wrong.
As a wise Yoda will tell you "Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering.”
Superman cannot have fear in his heart it goes against the whole premise of the character IMO.
