As soon as he did it and saved the entire planet.

Maybe you should.

Though if you're looking for the film to spell it out for you in an obvious and heavy-handed manner, then I'm afraid you'll be watching it forever.

He could save the planet every day by killing lex and all the rest of the bad guys with a neck snap.
It will take more than him "saving the world" for a simpleton like myself to take this as "the right thing to do".

My measure goes beyond is the world saved or not.
He can?
That and more. Even faster when he employs the help of the League.
Again, the comics.
Typically, the former leads to the latter.
Conveniently you choose to base your argument on a "typically".
Looks like we have our common terms.
This is the point where I quit due to being ahead.
Maybe, but that comment rubbed me the wrong way. It almost sounds to me like he wants us to think of Superman as a ticking time bomb or something.
That's the problem with the majority of detractors. There are many ways to take many things about this film and the character. Choosing the most drastic seems to go to for some of ya'll.

Captain America can kill at anytime if pushed to it. He's hardly a "ticking time bomb"
