Superman saving anyone from any situation is cliche at this point. It's hard to be totally original with 75 years of material to draw from. But I agree, your opening sequence idea is great.
That moment when you put the oldies station on and hear a song that was new when you were ten. Obviously, the DJ is not well-informed on what an 'oldie' actually is.
