Didn't seem that way to me. He was going to try and stop that bomb, but Billy was preventing him from doing it. Then, he told Billy they could keep fighting and allow everyone to die or stop so he do something about the bomb.

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
