I'd much rather it be the tornado, or any natural human way of dying.

If he was killed by Zod/Faora or anything remotely alien related, then there is a reason for Clark to feel 'guilty' about it.

If he dies of something completely out of his hands, it causes him to feel helpless and frustrated, but it doesn't become 'all his fault'.

I'd rather he was roaming the earth and feeling depressed because his father tragically died, than if he was doing it just because he was feeling a bit blue one day...

'Why do I find all of this so horrible to explore?
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.'
