- To me, Superman is just the wish fulfilment all superheroics are about. Wouldn't it be great if there was a morally virtuous guy sticking up for the little people who had amazing powers and saved his girl from the evil scientist and his robots? It's just a good old pulp narrative distilled to its simplest form. Generally speaking I don't care for superheroes at all, but I've always liked Superman and Batman for some reason.
Abrams in charge of Superman ain't such a bad idea. I hate to cite Star Trek
(because this being a Trek
forum, everyone is), but there was a film that managed to be upbeat, optimistic and fun, while still being cool and modern.
That's what people would want out of a Superman movie, no? Have at it, why not, though I'd probably prefer to have Abrams plodding on with Trek films rather than jumping ship a la Singer and the previous Superman movie. Basically so long as it doesn't effect his involve in the Trek sequel I'm fine with it.

No, but iconography is. It isn't really appropriate here, 'well established as iconic' would work better.
