Retcons the Retcons!!!

Jeez is there anybody else tired of retcons. Everytime I see a movie and look up info on the lesser known characters most of the time they've been retconned once or twice over. I don't get why authors do stuff like that. It just makes the stories harder to follow because you remember a character having a certain power or family (what happened to Osborn abducting May Park in universe 616?)  That whole third Summers brother thing is sorta retcon to me since he came out of nowhere. How strong is Superman? I've seen him move a planet in the past but struggle to prevent a plane from falling. I mean it's all crazy I'm wrong retcons are a necessary evil to make a story work blah blah blah Tidal wave.
