What's lacking here isn't "imagination", but something else. Perhaps what you went on to describe.
I think this is a semantic arguement. And I always find those moot. I don't think we particularly disagree. I'm not saying 'he's an idiot with no creative imagination whatsoever'. I'm just saying his imagination obv doesn't extend to a DC world on screen.

I think back to my father. As a farmer, he had a natural understanding for the Earth. I remember him telling me this world is capable of providing for all its creatures. Even now, with so many more people, there exists enough food for everyone.

"The problem," Pa used to say, "is people. As far back as we go, we've always had problems with sharing. Seems everyone's too busy holding on to what they've got to care how their neighbors are doing."
