If Superman braced for the bullets Im sure he probably could have taken them without his neck snapping back, but at the same time I dont think it would have been anything like the Returns Superman where the bullets looked like tissue.
When you're dealing with such high powered beings its hard to get it right and consistent. Nam-Ek is blown back 50 feet from jet machine gun fire. I'm not a weapon specialist but here is the machine gun on the F22 that hit Nam EK
Its got 20mm rounds, not sure how that compares to the guns on the helis. But is strong enough to really knock Nam Ek back 50 feet while the guns on the helis couldnt?
It was an A-10 with its 30mm GAU-8/A Avenger that hit Nam Ek. And the helos had the much smaller and weaker 7.62mm miniguns.
