* LighterAndSofter: Since the late [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfComicBooks Golden Age]], this is Superman's [[GoodIsOldFashioned perceived personality]] and settings in relation to any other mainstream superhero you may think of. It's also sort of a BaseBreaker since Supes' detractors find him dorky and always lagging with the current comic book trends because of this, but on the other hand, his fans see this very trope as one of Superman's most endearing traits that also sets him apart from the rest of the DC Comics universe and even the company's competitors.
** To this very day, there have been multiple attempts to make Superman DarkerAndEdgier, but the character has survived all of them relatively unchanged.

** The family names tend to sound a lot like the letters of the alphabet (besides the House of El, other Kryptonians have had names like Dev-Em and Jax-Ur). Not reminding fans of that pattern might be one reason that villains like Zod tend not to use their full names.
** Only the men use the family names directly. Supergirl isn't Kara-El, she adds her father's complete name, making her Kara Zor-El.
