It adds to the psychology and notion of 'good behaviour', and why Superman strongly enforces it.

It was just about adding layers to his psychology
I just think your twisting it into something very angsty.

It's fine to say that Superman got his good morals from his parents, and that the way they raised him has a lot to do with why he's so good.

It's weird to say that Superman sticks to good morals because he's afraid of his parents being dissapointed in him.

That sounds more like Dexter than Superman.
