I don't really know where you are getting "dated" from either.

Well, the early Superman origin was a little bit in flux. At first there weren't any Kents, it was the famous "passing motorist" who found the baby and gave him to a orphanage. Thus this aspect is a remnant of the early concept. I prefer it to be gone, I like streamlined origins (Doomed Planet - Desperate Scientists - Last Hope - Friendly Couple), it doesn't need to get overly complex. Some additions are good, but the basic premise should be able to be told in a few words. More iconic and fitting for a mythological character like Superman.

I don't have a problem with slightly different versions, I mean, every myth has its permutations and differences - as long as the core is still there. And the core is definitely not "Clark is Who I am and Superman Is What I Can Do."
