I think there should be more superheroes and supervillains that are in line with 21st century culture. I don't mean LGBTQIA characters.
For example, there should be a character who derives special powers and/or abilities from being subjected to smartphone radiation, or a character who is or becomes a living video game avatar. Smartphones and video game avatars are part of 21st century culture.
That's what kids are into - current culture. It's been like that for decades.
In addition, both DC and Marvel have been introducing LGBT+ characters since the 80s (retroactively for DC, since the 1940s), so it is already too late to stop both companies from using these characters.
As I said to you many times before, it is not really a good idea to add pop culture references due to the risk of being outdated.
Disney's Oliver & Company (1988) had many references to the late 1980s when it was produced. The film nowadays is forgotten compared to Disney's other timeless films produced before and after the release of Oliver & Company.
Do dated things generally fall into (relative) obscurity?

Have you actually seen the New Looney Tunes shorts?
They don't have numerous pop culture references, if any at all. They barely feature modern technology except for cell phones. Even Sylvester's ghost catching machine in one short is just an old fashioned vacuum.
