I was just trying to think of an apt metaphor for the situation, but you're so right! This is the Lazarus pit for Superman fans... they give us a glimmer of hope, and every day we think we just have to work a little bit harder to get a little bit closer... but we know it can drop right back down again at any point, and really we have no control...
Just accept that this is the direction they have taken.
Then, you can either decide this version isn't for you and stop watching. OR you can decide to enjoy it for what it is - an elseworlds tale.
'In Elseworlds, super-heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places - some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.'
