Seems fickle imo.
Yes on day one, read Action Comics #9. One of the best single issues of Superman ever, and it deals in a world where Superman isn't real, per se, and is just an idea, a character or as he is referred to in story "made up messiah". It also deals with what happens when people who only want to make a mass appeal version of the character, and create a brand over anything else and how it pollutes the essence of him.
