Supes is always as strong as the situation requires it seems but putting a number on it like they seem to be doing in the new 52 is just backing yourself into a corner later.

Morrison got away with it in All-Star cause it was a limited series and he solar overdosed allowing him to reach those silver-age strengths.

I definitely think he should be exerting himself when stopping trains and catching planes and whatnot. It adds to the excitement.
This coming from a guy who uses Smallvile as his member name. That series had a superman that did feats that were greater than those of the Fleisher tunes. Keep in mind that the Fleicher Superman was the character from the Golden Age who bascally started flying because leaping around was "silly looking" according to them.
