Superman/Batman #8 "The New Girl in Town" is a must have issue. Great storyline. Stunning artwork. But I raise the subject to assuage the Chaos Overlord of any doubt about Superman. I quote the Batman for an expert opinion. In this scene, Superman is feeling slightly sulky for reasons to do with the plot...

Batman: Superman?
Superman: I'm not on this comm-link so I can't possibly hear you.
Batman: There is a job for you. G.P.S. my position in Gotham City and locate the automated dirigible before --
Superman: On it!
Batman (to self): And in a single moment, he shows us again why he sets the standard for so many. There are those who think of him as outdated, the "boy scout" whipped by his selflessness. They do not, cannot, see him for what he is...
... a hero.

And then... Check out the Daily Planet interactive screensaver.

Pretty sweet. I'm not thrilled about the introduction of yet another Supergirl (let's at least let the last two or three get cold), but, heck, I'm game.

The true beauty of Superman as a superhero IS that he is purely and naively good. People often see this as a fault but only because the faults of others make it a dangerous condition.

Were you to be invincible on the other hand...
