Default Re: What's your worst fear regarding MOS?

It sounds like they believe that the audience won't accept Superman and the world he lives in, so they have to tone it down. As if we Superman fans would say, "Oh, that wouldn't happen!" I mean, its Superman, you know what to expect when you buy the ticket. Superman stories provide a great setting to sink your teeth into some cool science fiction. The very origin of Superman is totally sci-fi; genius scientist of another planet sends his son to Earth on a rocket ship.

I think turning down the sci-fi elements of a Superman story is dumb. Superman is a extraordinary character and a proper setting and tone should be on the same level as Superman. So, if they want to have "realism" as a backdrop, then it sounds like they want to water down Superman as well.
