It's a little bit blunt, but I have to agree with Laughingsword. And to be honest, not everyone approaches the idea in the same manner. Some think small, others big. But to answer your question of why any other goal wouldn't be as satisfying to us, I would venture it was because this idea has the implications of our controlling our own future. It's our responsibility to put forth the effort and complete our own goals, with very little outside incentive. Choosing the image of the superhero probably occured because of its prominence in the modern world, and how ingrained it is in a lot of people's minds.
