Re: All Things Superman and Batman: An Open Discussion - Part 2
The Superman character has evolved over time and the no kill policy has become a staple, but lets not pretend it's always been there. We all know the real reason heroes stopped killing in these books was the Comics Code Authority. Sure the policy was kept around for a lot of heroes but that was the initial reason for it. I mean Superman killing is not preferred by me, but it doesn't go against the character at all. You certainly can't say the filmmakers don't get Superman based on that. They might not get my idea of Superman though.
