It really depends on who's writing him, and most people who are put in charge of writing him don't have imagination, most modern writers grew up with "grim and gritty" stories, and try shoving him into that genre, when he does not fit. Superman works when you actually have an imagination. If you use your imagination when writing, you can even do some very well written drama.
My biggest issue with him is that he has no conventional weaknesses. Batman, Spidey, etc can all be harmed by normal methods. Things like, you know, bullets. A "common" thug poses no threat to Supes, only super-powered bad guys do. This forces the writers to have to constantly come up with someone who can pose a threat to Superman, which in my opinion, dilutes the story. I mean crap, even the Hulk can get shot.
OH NO! THE WRITERS HAVE TO ACTUALLY USE THEIR IMAGINATION FOR ONCE? BUT THE WRITERS DON'T HAVE AN IMAGINATION! WHAT DO WE DOOOOOO?
