The idea for superman is just boring to me, and it doesn't help much that he makes me think of poorly played paladins.

Whereas other superheros potentially weren't so restricted and had more room to breathe as characters, perhaps?

Except modern DCU Superman and All-Star Superman are completely different, and differently dealt with, so that doesn't really help. If anything it just makes it even more obvious how terrible the canon Superman is.And anyone who dislikes Superman should read the All-Star Superman miniseries.
