Default Re: David S. Goyer IS the Script Writer! - Part 2

^it's a confusing matter, dude didn't reference the donner film outside of essentially using a donner scene...
At the same time, donner's superman killed, so maybe it's not the donner scene. then again superman has killed zod in the comics. What's a fanboy to do.

The real issue I have is how superman is under the moral microscope to the point of inequality. You ask the basic question of if a man can kill with no choice and still be a good person? Why is this question never asked of the marvel cinematic heroes and their kills and quips? Because the same rules don't apply there. As everything else, superman isn't going to be met with even keeled rational. Just weighed against an intangible preconception that really no one can even tie down. Then there is the little issue of the fully contradictory tdk stuff...
Long story short, is tony stark a "bad person" for killing 'self defense'? Probably not, Is superman a bad person for... probably so.
