What an ugly situation this could turn into. I wouldn't want to see Superman in a different costume or with different abilities. In my opinion, this would destroy Superman should it all come down to that.

i would like to see superman 3000 with a black costume and a silver S with a darker and more sadistic personality84

It seems to always come down to money these least most of the time anyway.
