I thought smallville was supposed to be Superman for the twilight generation.
Considering it came out when Dawsons Creek still was relevant I'd say it's closer to that.
is fiction losin' it's cool factor?
This is a really weird and nonsensical sentence. Considering fiction is 'things that are imagined and not real' and people still love a lot of that. It also makes no sense even in context. Unless you mean Superman fiction, which is all that Superman is since he isn't real.
the sentence looks weird but the meaning is that we, apparently are getting lower and lower quality entertainment these days, the arguments don't seem as inspiring as they used to be, not just in Superman fiction, but in all forms of fiction that we consume, be it books, movies, tv shows ,comics etc. low quality seems to be the norm these days, there's far more things to dislike in them these days than things people will like or praise about them. Sure, there are still masterpieces being produced, but looks like theres an overflow of mediocrity that fails to capture the essence of what people uesd to identify and relate to in fiction, (the cool factor that makes you appreciate it and makes it's memory last for the rest of your life) and people still consumes the product because there?s nothing else to watch or to read. I made the sentence into a question because I don't really know if it's really what's happening right now, and to see if what I'm saying is true, further studies would be required.
