It talks a lot about whether Superman was justified in his actions in his battle with Doomsday.
And it talks about how he kind of just waltzed back into the world. Out of the millions of deaths that resulted from that battle, and the aftermath, the only person who was able to come back was Superman.
He was confronted with the sheer number of deaths that were a direct and indirect result of what happened when he fought Doomsday.
Some of the questions posed were "Why didn't you save more people?", and "Why didn't you take the fight out of Metropolis?"
I mean, his battle with Doomsday injured and killed people. He didn't take time to save anyone. He remained focused solely on his fight, and he gets called on that.
Sounds kind of familiar, right?
