I can't get down with you, dude.
You're on your own.
I pointed up above as to why the 'drifting' aspect of the film was poorly defined.
And sadly, that was just one of the many elements of the film that were poorly executed. I'm in agreement with this review: http://thatguywiththeglasses.com/vid...h-man-of-steel
Decent concepts, poor execution.

He does owe it to himself "to find out what that reason is", as Jonathan says, but that only comes into play when he overhears the news up north.
I'd buy that as a more logical reason, but even that was weakly defined onscreen.
