He is just awesome.
EDIT: from 4 years ago.
Wow, I was going to come in here and say something special but it looks like you guys already covered it. Superman is the greatest superhero in my opinion. And as I once heard, everyone else puts their masks on to become a superhero (or else don't wear any), Superman is the only one that removes his. That is, he is Superman first, and Clark is just his alter-ego.
I would disagree he will never kill but agree with all your other points. If neccessary he will kill.
Anyways to add
He is the most virtous super hero with the highest integrity.
One you can count if you need him that won't pass judgment like Batman.
One of the best costumes, symbols, and color designs.
A awsome sounding theme
One that inspires to be better and be like him.
He has the most positve mindset that sees the good in people and is a constant do gooder.
The Most Imitated and Merchandised Super Hero
He was the world's first comic book super hero.
The guy has this saying with words to live by
Add in the best shape
Ok in the one issue story Superman vs Darkseid Apokolips Now Superman beats him so hard that it Darkseid's became swollen shut as a result. I would say that's impressive to shut up the disrespectful arrogant overconfident sadstic very evil super villain who called him a worm.
"Quoted for Truth. People say Superman sucks so much without realizing how much he changed the way Superheroes were made.
Alpha says:"To me he is and always will be the example of a true hero. He sets the standard even today in my opinion. "
Irrespective of his massive powers, he 'clothes' himself in a normal human identity and so is close to and understands the common man / mortals. This keeps him grounded.
Duty, Honour, Self-sacrifice, respect, truth etc etc. All these words describe him but no single word captures all that he is except possibly Heroic.
He sets the bar by which others are judged, be it morals or power level."
If I had a scanner I would upload the pages of him in the Superman For Tommorow Series where he saves the female, lands on the ground Batman takes a swing at him misses by plenty with Superman answering he's making his job look easy, then goes on with the excellent quote "Typical throw another and I promise I won't move, and that every bone in your hand will be broken. Then prooceeds to further own Bats by telling him how dark he is.

I can't believe that this page hasn't been done yet. The reasons why I love the guy is that...
He will never give up
He will always try is best
He gives hope and when your out of it, he comes to help
He is the orginal comic character if you know what I mean
He doesn't fight with anger
He will never kill
And he will sacrifice himself for good"
"Proof Superman can fly faster then Light Speed. And did he just destroy a planet? Wha.....Did Jim Lee draw him?
I love the fact that Superman despite how powerful he really is, tends to hold back half the time...if he really cut loose and went full potential forget it...lol but everyone has to know that's not what Superman's about. :)"
