    Correct.
    This juxtaposition generically benevolent/morally ambiguous Superman doesn't really exist. What writers should do, or should have done, is/was portraying Superman as a moral authority in an...

    Yes, the last sentence summarizes my point.
    It's not that I think that Superman isn't a good father/educator (as in the infamous "Superman and Lois are terrible parents because they let Jor-El take...

    Just to be clear - I wasn't entirely serious. Having a rebellious teenager Jon is not in the top 50 things I would like to see in a Superman comic book. I had never really thought about this concept...

    Exactly.
    At least when they were around you could quickly forget about them, but it's a problem when the "teacher" is the frickin' titular character.
