Lee says that having a beautiful wife made it too easy for Superman, and they wanted to restore the idea that Superman can’t get everything that he wants.

Huh. Now, if I wanted to communicate that idea, I'd probably focus on illustrating how Superman wants more than just a wife what is hot. (Or even--shock!--a wife what is smart, brave, confident, successful and kind.) Maybe show how Superman wishes for universal peace and happiness, and the reformation of criminals like Luthor, and the impossible survival of his fellow Kryptonians. In fact, I could have sworn that a lot of writers have shown Superman having lofty, challenging goals like that.

But I guess you could also go this path and make Superman's new life goal getting into a hot girl's pants. That's character evolution, kind of.

Johns says that by having J’onn on the JLA, there is redundancy because Clark is already an alien.

Clark, even nuClark, is a biologically alien Kansas farm boy. J'onn actually grew up in and became an established, successful member of an alien culture, with a duty and a family, and then was ripped away from everything and everyone he knew.

It's a bit troubling that a writer of science-fictiony comics would consider these two characters redundant.
