That's fine but this was a movie that was independent from the comics. Nothing in the movie before or after the incident occurs suggests that Clark doesn't understand or respect the sanctity of life. If you had watched the movie, you would know that Clark was profoundly effected by the magnitude of his decision and he didn't simply stand up, wash his hand, and whistle a tune as he skipped away.
Yeah, like breaking arms and legs instead of a neck.
You're right, Clark could
have broken Zod's arms and legs first. I said that there were probably other options available. However, does that guarantee that Zod won't still obliterate a family with his heat vision first? You don't need arms and legs to incinerate somebody with heat vision
Sorry, but I'm afraid it does. This is no more the real Superman than the thing that the DCnU is presenting. It's just another warped, Darker and Edgier
version of him.
In your opinion. The Superman depicted in Man of Steel was never meant to be an example of any one type of Superman, it is its own beast entirely. Just because he killed one guy
, doesn't mean he is going to go around killing villains left or right. This movie isn't as dark and edgy like other people are trying to make it out to be.
