DC Comics Preview: Superman Is No Longer Super in Action Comics #41
Superman has always been a problematic character, mostly because he's unrelatable. Yes, he has a weakness in the form of Kryptonite, but he's still essentially invulnerable, while relatable characters are defined by their vulnerabilities. The newest issue of Action Comics seeks to change all that, however, and turns Clark Kent into a nearly depowered, relatable human character.

This iteration of Superman can't fly, has no heat vision, and can experience feelings such as cold and hunger. He's physically strong enough that he can beat up bullies without breaking too much of a sweat, but it's still the comics equivalent of that section of gossip magazines that show celebrities dropping off their drycleaning.
