The film “Superman vs. The Elite” is a prime example of that for starters. But I do agree that there would probably be a part of him that fears that he may let down his parents and the world, but I don’t think those factors are what drives him as much.

Sure, they are interesting questions that I don't mind seeing in an elseworlds GN. But as a theme for the film that is kicking off the tone of the whole JL, and in a film that is presenting Superman to the general audience in a way that current generations will remember him?
I just don't like it. It's dark, it's depressing and it's not how I like the tone of Superman films to be.'
