When I think of the modern Superman, I like to think about the golden age one, just with a bigger supporting cast and super-villains.

Mort Weisinger was the worst thing to happen to Superman, however without him much of the mythology would not exist. Whoever got so far away from Jerry and Joe's original vision may be the reason why Superman is looked down upon these days.
