Just whether or not it will be okay if he kills Zod/Faora/another kryptonian in this film.
And I very much vote no.
My personal stance:
I'm okay with a 'back to the phantom zone you go' scenario. I'm okay with the military somehow killing a villain (I.e. Taking out Faora with a kryptonite weapon or something).
I'm okay with a Green Goblin in Spidey 1 style 'He killed himself' scenario.
I'm not okay with a Ra's al Ghul style 'I don't have to save you', and I'm not okay with Superman knocking someone a few storeys and killing them ala Twoface either.
And I'm certainly not okay with Superman making the DECISION to kill in order to protect us.
I agree completely

You will give the people of Earth an ideal to strive towards. They will race behind you, they will stumble, they will fall. But in time, they will join you in the sun, Kal. In time, you will help them accomplish wonders.
