What would happen if HANCOCK replaced Super Man?
How would the villains, supporting cast members and other heroes react to this turn of events?

Well, first off, it would be cool because at least Hancock has a personality. I think heroes and villains alike would be confused as to how to act around him. There are anti-heroes, but none of them with the powers that Hancock has. I wouldn't mind if Hancock got his own comic, maybe the story could be better told in that medium.

PS: Shouldn't this be the "Talk Among Yourselves" section?

I disagree, I think Superman is very charismatic and Christ-like, something you could never make Hancock be. I think Hancock would be better suited as a popular skit on SNL.

The problem with Superman is he is TOO Christ-like to some comic book fans. He's too much of a boy scout in this day and age of fans wanting anti-heroes like Wolverine. He's trapped in the 1930s and is in desperate need of an updating, like Batman got in "Dark Knight".

I can see some of where everyone is coming from, but I would not change
that about Superman, because that's what gave Superman Returns its
achingly poignant tone that evoked all of its melancholy senses of him
coming to terms with himself. I would argue that to undo his
wholesomeness and make him emotionally incompetent like Hancock or
Batman would be really uninspiring.
