I think they’re worried about just creating invulnerable Captain America. But, having just recently watched Shazam!, I think they should let those writers do it. Create the Luthor that exists in the comic books and cartoons, the one where Superman’s brawn alone will not defeat him.

Also, I’ve watched and read One Punch Man (Japanese character meant to spoof some manga/anime), and so have a lot of other people. A lot of people will watch invulnerable characters.

If it’s Supes that they’re worried about reworking, and not Clark Kent himself, that should be easy: Just don’t paste, “America, Fuck Yeah,” all over him. I get it: Superman, “Truth, Justice, and the American Way.” But if you tone down the blind patriotism - or maybe make it a teachable moment in Supes’s character arc - then you have a character that is relatable to a modern audience. Someone who appreciates America but wants to work to fix its flaws.
