Superman killing Zod wasn't as much of a deal breaker for me as it was for other people, but this comment makes no sense. People will idolize Superman? Why? The guy's complicit in destroying half of Metropolis and has killed his own. He even admitted there's nothing anyone can do to stop him. If I was a normal street walker in his universe, I'd head for the hills as soon as Superman shows up.
I'm well aware Clark isn't suddenly a villain now, or even a bad person. He saved the world from worse. But if you were one of those up-in-the-sky-ers, would you "idolize" Superman for his actions so far?
