The collateral damage he causes in the cartoons and comics will have killed people. Can't imagine that wouldn't be the case.Andrew Siribohdi said:Bob, you say that it was wrong for Superman to kill one person and that it will open the door for Superman killing his other enemies.
But the complaints I've heard online is that he killed WAY more people when he had that DBZ fight with Zod at the end of the movie and by not even trying to save them from falling buildings and debris, it made him seem more heartless than just killing Zod.
I was equally confused. I always found the 'do not kill' rule to be utterly stupid, but it's now so integrated into the character that removing it seems..Bizarre. I mean, heck, is BATMAN the traditional 'good guy' now of the future Justice League?canadamus_prime said:Wait, Superman kills Zod? That's not right. Superman doesn't kill.
You don't understand the point of the No killing thing. See once you make the choice to end a life for 'the greater good' it becomes a very very slippery slope. Since Good is simply the most subjective term in the human language. Superman has always realized this in the same way that Batman realizes that his unwillingness to kill is really one of the few differences between himself and the Joker.DVS BSTrD said:Actually I think that the movie proves Superman should be killing, or did you not see Zodd murder half the population of Metropolis? I've never thought it was acceptable for mor innocent people to die in the next issue just because the "hero" didn't wan to get his hands dirty. And even if it wasn't against it's moral code, it would still suck to end the only other member of your species.
