It's a fair criticism, but I think the appeal of the 'timeless' Superman, who is routed in post war Middle America, is seeing how a more modern context reacts to him, and him to it. I am not so naive to suppose that the world is somehow more 'complicated' now than it was then, but it is different, and that is bound to ask something different of our hero.

I think it is in some ways analogous to the way that James Bond has remained a hard drinking, womanizing, imperialist dinosaur, but the character has somehow taken on some of the ambiance of the modern world.

We'll see how it turns out, eh?
