Default Re: Superman's power level - Part 1

I was thinking today about the major differences between this upcoming film and Donner's 1978 classic, and one of them would be our modern technology. We have the means nowadays to track a being like Superman as he moves around - via satellites, face recognition, heat signatures, and so on. Superman Returns - despite being only 6yrs old now - didn't really touch on this issue.

Does anyone think Snyder will focus on any of these issues, and if so, will Superman's powers be shown to circumvent technology?

For instance, in the Birthright comic series, Superman's supervision is shown to be able to detect satellite transmissions, radio waves, electromagnetic radiation and other types of radiation waves ..................... thus he is able to avoid detection in certain ways. Too far-fetched for MOS? Or is it more far-fetched to think someone like Superman could move around in 2012 and not be tracked or detected by those who are trying to find him?
