If Superman stumbles across a wife-beater... I want him to whoop the wife-beater's ass.

The idea that Superman would keep going, let him continue beating his wife, and call law enforcement and let them handle it......... is a summation of everything wrong with "modern" Superman. Fuck, I could do that. Some "Superman" you are.
I'm sure the old Superman would still stop him, but the problem is the comics always had him too busy fighting aliens and supervillains and other fantastical things to be bothered with that stuff.

I'm sure it'll be short-lived, but it's really refreshing to see him among real people again, and dealing with more relatable, real world problems.
