Grant Morrison drops a lot of hints about the upcoming DC Comics superevent "Final Crisis" at Comic Book Resources, while Bam, Kapow! argues that Superman will always suck. You see this sort of thing a lot from people who don't understand what makes a Superman story good or even how the Superman character works—though I find this article to be particularly unfair to the poor guy.

There's actually a good argument to be made that Superman's ethical self-policing is in fact reflective of the ideologies of the status-quo ruling class, and that he should spend less time stopping bank-robbers and more time destroying militaries and ending world hunger—but this isn't it.
