The suit looks so bad here. If only they would get rid of the panties and fill him with pads, seams and a collar.

This means superheroes can deal with real-world issues far more often than escapist fantasy franchises, which interests me much more than, say, the quest to destroy the One Ring.
Yeah but they really dont deal with every day issues. They deal with alien gods, robots, crazy clowns, clay monsters, plant ladies, ancient witches, etc.

Sure there can be stories about Superman dealing with wife beaters and social stuff like that, but as JMS' run has proved people are not interested for that in a Superman book. So yes there can be some social commentary, but 99,9999% its stories where Superman fights Brainiac, Batman fights Scarecrow, etc which are superhero escapist stories.
