Don't see why he couldn't have had a similar amount of relevance as John Blake or someone like that... there is plenty of room within a well written story, for a good young man with the best intentions trying to follow the heroes example.

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.'
