It's not the accent or the distortedness that bothers me, it's how high pitched it gets in places. It just sounds really off, and doesn't fit with the mood the actual words are trying to create.

Sure, they are interesting questions that I don't mind seeing in an elseworlds GN. But as a theme for the film that is kicking off the tone of the whole JL, and in a film that is presenting Superman to the general audience in a way that current generations will remember him?
