Default Re: How Superman Resolved the Issue of Zod *MEGA SPOILER*

Oh I understand, but the movie's seqences don't support your thesis.
Yes it does. Especially when Zod tries to kill the people right before Superman stops him.

Zod "verbally" said he will kill the humans .... it's simply a threat, as clearly his true focus is on battling Supes. We didn't see Zod at any point attempt to break away from the fight or incapacitate Supes in such a way that he could get to killing people. He just kept fighting.
It is to be assumed that Zod wanted to kill people based on his words and his actions, as Zod's actions, what with all the toppling buildings and such, were likely killing people.

By the end of the movie, it is no longer only a "threat".

So again, why wouldn't Supes canonball him away from the city?
I just explained that. He potentially could have. It would not, in the longrun, have solved the issue.
