Imagine Clark's life if his powers are revealed before he's ready to face the challenge. It would be too much, both for Clark and his parents. Pa Kent isn't telling Clark to let people die, but to realize that once he starts down that road, there's no going back.

But the choice is left for Clark to make and clearly, he becomes Superman. That means that he's at least reconciled some of his dilemma. And let's face it, being that powerful would pose issues for nearly anyone, even someone as good as Clark. And he still looks for our approval, as the trailer's end shows. But Superman does come to fruition. And how can that be seen as bleak?
Well said
