It's disingenuous to a fault.
The issue has always been about superman killing. "He's better than this, he's more moral than that..."

You mean to tell this whole time it's actually been about the fashion he went about it?

Please. So he can kill, just not in this particular fashion right?

"A man named Hal Jordan was recruited 35 years ago into the Lantern core. He hasn't returned to the relatively measured as primitive earth since. Upon his return from what could be considered hell, the weathered soldier and man out of time has short trimmed grey hair, scars, and a warning of a looming threat that motivated his return to his home planet. He's also surprised and weary to see a Kryptonian on Earth"
