I get what you're saying, I just try to judge the believably of a movie only by the parameters presented in it. Superman, as a well known character, has a no-kill rule for all intents and purposes. In this movie, he doesn't. Not saying which is right or wrong, it just is.

And I never liked that Raimi put that line in Spider-Man, personally. I don't like expository dialogue if it can be avoided.
