Agreed. Like I talked about in my original post, I think his popularity seems to be linked to the general anxiety that society is going through, particularly in America. However, America has become so fractured and beaten down by the last few years, there's no guarantee that the next generation is going to be all that interested in Superman because he won't mean anything to them in a society overflowing with superheroes that aren't shackled to decades of older interpretations.

I'm hoping that someone strikes gold with the character though. I think there's still a lot of meat left on those bones.
