I was really hoping they would address the simpler version of superman where he is "faster than a speeding bullet" and "more powerful than a locomotive." What kind of damage would that do to someone's face.

"...completely destroyed the original concept of the character." Lately, they have scaled the character so that his output is relative to the mood of the scene and his motivation.
This led to a new dynamic in the character in the form of his (mostly unspoken) inner conflict: -"I'm trying to help people but, my main ability (strength) is almost purely lethal at capacity. I hardly ever use it." -"People just aren`t to be trusted so, why don`t I just fly down there with my super-powered army and take over?"
This second one was played out several times in parallel world stories where, the writers may not notice but, -Sup`s ideals actually make him a fascist. -9 out 10 iterations of Sups turn on the planet and take it over...

Continuously upping Superman's power from just unbelievable to beyond comprehension to absolutely limitless completely destroyed the original concept of the character.
