People nowadays don't care about Superman being an inspirational guy. They always have to subvert it. Change it. Make it how they wish. Look at all the evil fucking Superman clones running around, and how DC literally doesn't understand how Superman works by making stories where he turns evil all the fucking time.
Superman isn't allowed to be inspirational or kind. Not when basedboys can open their fucking cockguzzling mouths to say "DOOOOOOOOOOOOD LOOK AT HOW EVIL THIS NOT-SUPERMAN IS WOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH". The subversion has become the mainstay, and the old and better idea has become outdated due to people's beliefs.
The idea of Superman as a inspirational figure is dying, and being replaced by a cold, stark idea of an unstoppable entity that strikes fear into people with unfathomable power.
