take this with a grain of salt because i have been a Sup fan since i was a lil kid, but: he's too powerful and totally and completely unrelatable to modern times. to me (and several of my friends) it's just hard to care about him any more. a fun idol to look up to as a kid, then wholly uninteresting as an adult fan. maybe Batman vs Superman will change that in the movies, but god damn, he's a train wreck otherwise, and not the fun to watch kind. sometimes old school is fun (Marvel got cheeky with Cap America being old school and it worked) but then there's just being stuck in old times. and that's his deal. he's a character from the old times that's hard to change, but then we DC does decide to try to change things up, they try to damn hard (or it at least come across that way). there's too many other characters out there that are 1) more interesting, and more importantly, 2) more relatable.
