Exactly. Calling Superman's code against killing "trivial" just shows a lack of understanding of how essential it is to his character. It's the line that he cannot pass, and if he does, then Superman ends.
I know modern comics and films treat life as a trivial thing, but it is not. Especially not to a figure like Superman.
