Garth Ennis or bust! Throw people off. Probably the most underrated Superman writer ever.
A Jewish seamstress in a steampunked Victorian London hires a consulting detective to solve a magical murder mystery.

I think I'd like to write a Superman story that mainly focused on him being Clark Kent and not Supes.
The stories would revolve around Clark using his journalism skills to tackle organized crime and political corruption instead of him simply punching stuff in the face.
maybe use the new 52 to reintroduce Maxima as someone who might be able to connect with him as a human, and not some super-bimbo with superman powers + telekinesis.
and have a page or two every now and then when he's running around the dog park with Krypto.
and yes, there would be Superman doing superman-y things, but it'd be for a page or two.
I essentially want to tell the story of the "man" in "superman".
with Bruno Mannhiem as the over-arching villain.
