Also, someone suggested a de-powered Superman. Now...

What would be the fun in playing that game?

Players would feel seriously ripped off.
It wouldn't be fun to get 'game over' everytime you fly into a building either.

Super fast.
Super Strong.

For instance there is no reason why Superman couldn't fly from one side of the city to the other side of the city flying through every building to get there. Sure, Superman wouldn't cause such wanton destruction in the comics but the 'PLAYER' should be able to.


Far easier characters to make in a video game.
It's true, Superman does present more challenges, but he would not be the first superfast superstrong "indestructible" hero to have a video game, eg Radical's games (Hulk Ultimate Destruction, Prototype), Matrix Path of Neo, Asura's Wrath. Heck, Superman was tons of fun to play in Lego Batman 2.

I think a lot of the challenge is people are thinking of the the godly Reeve Superman. Spider-Man is also able to plow through buildings if he desires, and Batman able to kill thugs if he so desires, but the games simply don't let you with, more or less, invisible walls. Now perhaps, because people expect Superman to be able to do those things that every super strong hero can do, that that wouldn't be received the same, or it be a harder 'sell' or whatever. That might be a thing, but the actual challenge isn't any greater. The only challenge is the expectation of the audience to get an outdated untouchale Superman.

Dreams save us. Dreams lift us up and transform us. And on my soul I swear: until my dream where dignity, honor, and justice becomes the reality we all share I'll never stop fighting. Ever - Superman
