They've dug themselves into a hole.
But his dad and his mom could be proud of Clark. They're his parents. As big of a mess he left. He stepped up and saved the world. Lois knows, the family he saved from Zod saw that, his parents saw that. Kal will have is proponents.
The next thing for Kal is to build trust to those who hate him. Do acts of good deeds.
You say they dug themselves a hole. I think they built themselves a mountain to climb. They set him back many steps. Now he has to move forward and build his legacy.
Do you believe that this is the "final form" of Superman?
