Because so many of us grew up with him, its natural that we'd want to boost up his power in order to see him do awesome awesome stuff. That's how we imagined him as kids. But making Superman invicible would lead us to not identifying with the character and making the whole movie a big bore.
No, it's not fanboyism, it's your complete lack of imagination that can't see the ability to create drama in a movie where Superman is depicted as he should be, doing the impossible. You people would suck at writing a movie or a comic, and this damn obsession with realism is killing the genre. God I am so sick of this.
