I never said he did kill him, just that the Goddamn GA Superman is awesome and greater appeal to a wide audience. Why not tweak the product further? Listen to all these people laugh at Superman's underwear.
What else? Lois should figure it out on her own and be his partner rather than an adversary? No problem, there's precedent for that in the comics. Superman shouldn't be a self aware, pretentious role model? No problem, there's precedent for that in the comics and more recently in animation as well. Superman can change back to something more resembling his GA roots and even further still to his roots in Gladiator and still be an authentic interpretation of the character.
Fans like you are stuck in the past and driven by nostalgia, so you can't appreciate deviation, even though your preferred SA version was an editorially mandated deviation to improve brand synergy with merchandise for children.
How so? GA Superman married Lois and SA Superman died a virgin. Did they ever show him sharing a bed with someone outside of an imaginary story?
You are so full of shit. It's stuff like this that makes everyone hate you. SA Superman had relationships with Lana Lang, Lois Lane, Lyla Lerrol, Sally Selwyn, and several other women. Just because they didn't show people in the sack back then doesn't mean it didn't happen. And it is clearly implied in "Who took the Super out of Superman?" that Lois spent the night at Clark's apartment.
Oh by the way, I've also seen people laugh at Batman's trunks. Pierce Brosnan turned down the part of Batman because of the trunks, even though the costume in Batman 1989 didn't have them:

"I went and met with Tim Burton for the role of Batman," he said. "But I just couldn’t really take it seriously. Any man who wears his underpants outside his pants just cannot be taken seriously."
