I'd agree with this mostly in terms of the dark serious tone that was all over this summer's blockbusters -- thanks TDK.
But I think that it's handling of the villains demise (Zod's death, obviously) is something that yet to really be done in comic book film. The emotional impact that it had on the character and subsequent effect it will have on the character's POV (hopefully to come in sequels) is a new experience to me.
