Default Re: Comparing the movies Thor and Man of Steel

What Batmannerism and I posted are very different in content. I don't know how it would be parroting unless you were gonna ignore what a lot of what I wrote...

It would have been better to explain it like you did imo, that it wasn't possible to escape with a ship large enough to take all three of them.
Did you really read what I wrote? They clearly don't go against what Krypton stood for. They did what their society breed them to do. They did exactly what Zod and the council were doing.

You are applying prime Silver Age Superman to MoS Superman, which makes little sense in context imo. This is a rookie Superman who is forced into a situation where he must face arguably his most fearsome opponent other then Darkseid or Doomsday. Forced into a situation where he must choice to end his race or save Earth.
