You ignored the context of the situation in order to support your argument.

How do I know when something is right or wrong? I don't, it's almost always up for debate.
If Superman hadn't killed Zod, Zod would have gone on to murder everyone on Earth. Killing him prevented that from taking place. It was justifiable homicide. I'm not sure what's debatable about that.

Doesn't matter. Cap isn't beyond seeing killing as a viable option...
Because he's a soldier. Superman is not.

Probably meant, that like batman, superman is no longer seen as a 2 dimensional hero.
Not sure what it is about having a "no kill" policy that makes a character two-dimensional, but okay.

This EXACT same thing has been said of batman. There are 2 recent occasions where the audience(readers in this case) didn't know if batman was going to kill the joker. That's probably due to the fact that the character isn't being played by adam west. Dimension, it's a good thing.
I don't even know how to respond to that.
