Probably because he's a nice guy with no real edge to him. Anti-heroes are all the rage these days. SR didn't help to convince young people that he's cool, either.

I agree with both of these statements. Instead of moping around about how no one respects him, Superman writers should just show him being the tough, smart, but kind, badass he is. Relevancy and coolness will follow.

Cynicism is not maturity, do not mistake the one for the other. If you truly cannot accept a story where someone does the right thing because it’s the right thing to do, that says far more about who you are than these characters. - Greg Rucka
