Why did you think it sucked?
It didn't really live up to the hype. For all the boasting about how it was new modern spin on Superman it really didn't blaze any new trails. All the talk about "edgy" Jimmy and a new never before seen take on Lois never materialized. ( But I get the impression the folks who made those "promises" haven't a clue about Superman or his supporting cast's history.)

It's pacing and characterization was pretty amateurish and slow. Clark's job hunting was a waste of space. The villain was pretty forgetable and his connection to Superman was too cliched. The design was weak too. The skeletal wings and tail plus glam rock make up was just too grade school. Is he supposed to be the "devil" to Supes' "angel".
