He was abiding Pa Kents wishes to not out himself as a godlike alien, thus causing massive ramifications on society. The Clark I know really wouldn't care less about that when a human life is in danger; he would make the 'mistake'.

Cause if we take 2 seconds to put young cavill in the all star scenario, what do you think would happen?
I wasn't comparing those two scenes. I was comparing Jor-El telling a 33-year old Clark that he can 'save everyone' and be all this to them, to the All-Star scene of a much younger Clark already thinking he can 'save everyone'.

So not sure what you mean putting Cavill in the All-Star scenario. They're clearly two different characters.

Take that same scene and remove jon kent's wishes, once that's done, look at how much clark the kid, really cared about keeping his secret.
I'm not sure what you mean by this. He cried out in pain? But still let it happen...
