    Just thought that he was a good parody of Superman, and would like him to be revisited in the future!


I'm quite happy to leave that as a one-off story and never revisit it.

This is the Whoniverse, not the DCU. The rules are different, and you tell different kinds of stories. Superman works very well in the DCU, but would be a washout in the Whoniverse because the threats are different. Daleks and Cybermen would be no match for Superman, but conversely Superman wouldn't stand a chance against a Daemon or Sutekh. So the kinds of stories you can tell with a Superman-like character in the Whoniverse are extremely limited.
