Re: Superman's Primal shout/grunts awesome or awful, what do you think ?
I loved his vocal outbursts when he was exerting himself. For relatively easy stuff (lifting a car, or say pushing that bus as a kid) he should show no more stress than you or I picking up a two by four. But that oil rig was huge, and girding himself to attack Foara meant turning it up to !2 and ripping the knob off. Same with escaping the event horizon of the mini black hole with Lois in tow. It's a great way to get the audience invested in the theoretical possibility that he could be overcome, thus relieving that weight of "he's boring/dramatically inert" from around the characters neck.

He truly proved that every person has the potential to be a force for good in this life. So anyone that reads this, do me a favor... Call your parents.
