That's the Superman I expect from Morrison actually, you look to his work on the character and Superman was always impressive. I don't know what control he will actually have and it does worry me as the current Superman editor has said pointblank in Q&A's he doesn't like a Superman who is that Uber and dominating, I think it says everything that the best Superman showing of the last six years have actually come from outside the two main Superman books.
Where the story content is concerned I'm hoping for a nice mix of life in Metropolis mixed with semi-cosmic stuff in the vein of pre-crisis Superman. I do feel he should be seen dealing with the threats no other hero would be equipped to deal with.
I have a feeling this reboot won't last long, it seems geared to promoting DCs digital sales and finding sales by that route and I hope it works. But the problems such a massive reboot would create in the longterm and the fact most of DCs creators (Geoff Johns) have worked hard on bringing consistency, tradition and continuity back into the DCU rule against this being permanent and all-encompassing.
I Look forward to some genuinly satisfying and ambitious work from Morrison and Co.
