You're ignoring this thing called context.

My measure goes beyond is the world saved or not.
Then what, exactly, is your criteria?

Conveniently you choose to base your argument on a "typically".
Because, conveniently, that's "typically" how it goes.

Looks like we have our common terms.
I was being sarcastic.

That's the problem with the majority of detractors. There are many ways to take many things about this film and the character. Choosing the most drastic seems to go to for some of ya'll.
Not really. I'm just reading what was said and interpreting it the best way I can. I'm not sure how many other ways there are to interpret what he said, but I'm definitely open to hearing other people out.

Captain America...
...isn't Superman.

can kill at anytime if pushed to it. He's hardly a "ticking time bomb"
I'm not saying Superman is either. But...

" don’t know 100 percent what he’s going to do."

"When you put in stone the concept that he won’t kill, and it’s totally in stone, it really erases an option in the viewer’s mind…"

"If he sees Lois get hurt, or his mother get killed, you just made a really mad Superman that we know is capable of some really horrible stuff, if he wants to be."

Not sure what else he could've meant.
