Well, they're pretty much usually inconsequential really.

I mean, they all stem from conversations you'd have as a kid with your friends about who would in a such fights with no real concern as to why they would fight. When really, if these characters were mature enough like any other adult, it wouldn't really get to that point. They'd only fight the bad guys. And if they really went at it, I don't think their issues would really be resolved with a fight or over the course of just one film too.

I was at some diplomatic party once. Got to talking to this princess who told me that when it came to Superman, I was missing the point. She told me, "His real strength lay in his generous spirit and sense of what's fair." - King Faraday

He’s much more of a working class superhero, which is why we ended the whole book with the image of a laboring Superman. He’s Everyman operating on a sci–fi Paul Bunyan scale." - Grant Morrison
