And that is all nothing to do with holding Superman himself to a double standard.
It's just expecting a higher quality of storytelling, especially when dealing with something I consider such a huge deal.
I find this a little confusing. Are you saying that you would've been okay if Superman had choices and still killed Zod (if that's what we're talking about)?
For me, it was the fact he didn't have a choice that made it okay.
