He definitely wanted to die. Probably would have killed himself anyway if he managed to kill Superman. His sole purpose at that point was to destroy Superman, maybe he realized that making the boy scout kill was another way of destroying him.
Was there something missing from the part where I agreed with DA's comment? Pretty sure those bolded statements were covered in my sentence right?
That would be a hilarious alternate ending... Zod reversals on Supes, beats him, wipes out everyone else, then snaps his own neck...the end. Nobody could argue their "tone" issues anymore at that point.
