@Contrabardus @sefy76 @rosslunney @Fingerkane VerY well said. Especially the Comics code authority!!! People really need to stop and think about that..Because of it almost every golden age and silver age hero doesnt kill. without it Batman would have killed ..without it Captain Marvel (SHAZAM) was throwing dudes off rooftops plunging to there death, those he did not throw off he gunned down by turning there own gatling gun against them. Monster Comics like Tails of the crypt that were very popular for having zombies eat there victims intestines where put out of business because of the CCA!! and no more killing heros! Now I dont want my superman to kill someone like Lex cause there are so many ways to try and subdue or work around him,but say Darkside comes to town trying to commit global genocide i want MY superman to Rip his heart out and smear blood on a large wall in the shape of kryptons syymbol of hope as a warning to any other A$$-hole who might try a global takeover all while Holding the american flag and smiling!!!

Yeah he crushed every bone in his hand crippling him if he did survive. Listen I'm not saying mos was a great movie or even a good one for that matter. I'm just saying superman killing zod isn't the reason it's not good.
That cut scene was cut for a reason in superman 2. Tell me the last time you saw that clip in the movie? The 80's maybe. It's like saying since natural born killers has that other ending where Micky an Malory get killed in the end by the guy who helped them escape. Well that scene is only available if you buy it on DVD. It's not the real ending. Just a clip that was cut out. The only reason that clip of superman 2 was added was to get people to watch it on tv for the 1st time. After a few showings that clip was taken out again. Go and rent superman 2 and you will not see that dumb ass ending. It's like if when mos comes out on blu ray and it has an extended ending where zod is just a paraplegic now and didnt actually die. Would you then say oh ok that's ok then even though anytime they show the flick they cut it out again ? No
How Did you know I have a nazi action man doll? Creepy
Supermans reason for not killing is anything but ambiguous !! He doesn't kill for the same reason batman and many other heros don't kill. Comics code Authority. That's it!!not some bs morals.
Before the CCA every super hero and comic book had the lead characters kill.
I agree. Lets have the old superman who kills Japs and nazis. Not good ol ameriKKKans
We like our heros with values we don't have.
Bad movies get bad reviews. Most of the time that statement can be correct. But not always. Think blade runner Star Wars. They may have good reviews now but when they came out did not. In fact in the case of blade runner it flopped in the theater. Only to become a cult classic. Now I'm not saying this movie was great. It was entertaining and was a good starting point. But we need to get over the past. Because this character is very old. And has had many different changes. This is just the latest. So cut the crap that they changed the mythos cause it will change again and again. Superman was already like 50 years old before the Donner films. He killed nazis and japs and thugs. There is no more comic code authority so we now can have a more realistic take in the comics.

The origin story from the original movie will never be shown again ...either will the red undies ! Why? Not cause they want to be different but because of copyrights battles between the 2 creators and Warner bros. And again supermans morals (as all other superhero morals ie batman)comes from the comic code authority that did not allow killing. Superman use to throw nazis and " japs" off rooftops before the CCA and the film rights battle is still going on. As of now WB has the rights to supermans flight , lex and some other things ..the costume and origins still belong to the creators ... Well one of the creators. The other made a bad deal in 1992 an gave up there rights hence why WB has ownership of some of supermans abilities like flight. But not his costume or origin. The courts will rule somtimes this year.
What was shown in the theatre and now shown on cable/tv all the time is what happened in superman 2!Zod lost his powers and was murdered by The last son of krypton all while smiling! The clip you speak of was cut for a reason. It was only shown on tv for a short time and never airs with that clip Ever!! Cause it was dumb/cheesy.
What would you say if when man of steal comes out on blu ray then finds its way to regular tv and the network to get viewers air it with a cut out clip of zod actually not being dead but just have a bad case of whip lash or "insert some other ridiculous reason why he lived " If I'm correct you can't see that clip on any VHS DVD blu ray or digital copy.
I agree that we should have a superman who thinks the ends justify the means. The thing is if you see his reaction after killing zod, I would say kal also agrees with you. I think that moment was a life changer for him. Anyway,nice to know someone remembers the Comics code Authoruty. If more people realized this they would understand the reason these fictional charactets have "morals"
There is only 1 true reason why Batman and Superman don't kill. It's called the comics code authority ! Those of us old enough to remember this will know what I mean. All comics had the stamp on there cover.Back in the day. There were a lot of horror type comics like "Weird science"
Where people where being killed or experimented on or just lots if gore...superheroes like Captain marvel where tossing people off rooftops , batman shooting thugs with PISTOL The comic code authority censored comics!
Hence anyone who wanted there books published did not have the good guy killing. And all those sci fi horror books or tales if the crypt type books were cancelled
In other words batman and big blue's morals are just a sign of the times. I mean if you want to keep the original then we should have Superman being a racist jap killer
