The Superman hero that we are used to today is not the same Superman that first appeared in the comics in the 1930's. The original Superman was never able to fly. He just had the ability to leap over tall buildings as you may remember from the old saying. His powers started to evolve and eventually went from leaping tall buildings to being able to remain in air and eventually accelerate and fly around. During the 70's and 80's his powers had peaked and writers found it difficult to find challenges for him so they started to diminish his powers.
