Superman: Earth One is an original graphic novel series written by J. Michael Straczynsk and penciled by Shane Davis. Published in the US in 2010 by DC Comics, and in the UK in 2011 by Titan Books, Superman: Earth One is the inaugural title of the new ongoing OGN series DC: Earth One, which, similarly to the Ultimate Marvel universe, allows creators to tell stories free of cumbersome continuity and reintroduce classic characters for a new generation. - From Wikipedia
although it received mixed reactions from fanboys and critics, it is still a great idea to freshen up the origins and stories of well-known superheroes such as Super Man by modernizing it.

Look out for Batman: Earth One as well.
is it just me or this looks like an idea for a movie pitch? nuff said!
