It was pretty much Superman just saying hey, Billy... soooo... whats your thoughts on all this stuff?. Im not saying it doesnt make sense and its not intriguing but I really wanted it all to come down to Superman making a final call, not passing the buck. Still a great story and Alex Ross makes the best artwork.
But, he wasn't passing the buck off to Billy.

I was at some diplomatic party once. Got to talking to this princess who told me that when it came to Superman, I was missing the point. She told me, "His real strength lay in his generous spirit and sense of what's fair." - King Faraday

He’s much more of a working class superhero, which is why we ended the whole book with the image of a laboring Superman. He’s Everyman operating on a sci–fi Paul Bunyan scale." - Grant Morrison
