And furthermore, would you use your powers the same way Clark chooses to? To serve and protect? Or would you just bottle it up and cast it aside... assuming of course you have it in you not to go the "Zod" route.
No, they wouldn't be too scared to chase you, that's not how it works unfortunately.

The more afraid they were, the bigger guns/exposives they'd use, and the harder they'd try to kill you. Simple as that.

And in what interpretation of Superman is he completely invincible?

So again, even if we agree to disagree... I hope the film gets this all across in some way or another. One can only hope, right?
I'm fully aware of how interesting a Superman movie can be, and I too hope they show a lot of what I said.

Of course, from everything i've seen/read, it seems like what i've said is EXACTLY what we are getting.

An agressive reaction from the military to Superman's presence.

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?
I just don't like it. It's dark, it's depressing and it's not how I like the tone of Superman films to be.'
