True, the way it happened does not correspond with how our legal system works, but obviously in SR they are in an alternate world, where key witnesses need to be present for appeals. Superman would clearly know this (and if he does not, he is clearly negligent), thus he should not leave earth. Thus, all the problems after Luthor's release can be blamed on Superman. Then there is his being a deadbeat Dad and abandoning the woman he loves.

In MOS, some seem to say "Superman should have taken the fighting out of Metropolis". Besides the fact that the only way they suggest doing this is the open Metropolis to mass drestruction of Superman II, they are missing the main cause of desctruction in Metropolis. Metropolis was not mainly leveled by the Superman/Zod fight. The main cause of the destruction, and the only cause of death is the World Engine beam. Superman goes to fight and destroy it as fast as he can. He acts expeditiously to save humans.
Yeah but Supes tackled Zod through a building/gas station to go fight him in populated areas

Yeah Costner embarassing well for you embarassing is taking care of human lifes and also for their dog showing the wonderful person he was... yeah so embarassing?... Yeah Martha knew there was a tornado coming after the tornado was there and then he locked the dog she close the door to protect the dog not to run across smth... talking about stupid arguments about costner hurt is that you don't care for human life... videogames have affected your mind... The way he dies is the way he needed not the best... sacrifing his life for his son converting in the hero the world needs... if the tornado doesn't look like the movie twister is bad designed... tornado experts that don't know that not all the tornadoes look the same...
talking about a hater biased about a movie with silly comments... go back to your batman forums if you didn't like it

That whole fight scene happened because Supes tackled Zod through a silo and a gas station.
Eh what were you expecting the military to do?? Come and try to negotiate with Faora and Nam-Ek?? lol xD The military had no choice but to use deadly force.Supes crashed Faora in an IHop shop filled with people and he also threw Nam-Ek into trains which then exploded

That feels extremely cynical, like the suddenly serious tone at the end of the fight didn't even matter to the film makers, they just threw it in because they thought people would be expecting it.

Say what you want about The Avengers but at least they showed the aftermath of the invasion, you know, the impact it had on people, the destruction, the lives lost, showed people in mourning etc.MOS did nothing to acknowledge any of that

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!:
which lives lost they showed if the humans in avengers are like indestructible bugs with explosions and then nothing happened...
If they didn't show the consequences of the invasion doesn't mean that didn't happen... they never focused on the buildings of metropolis... but that could be adressed on the sequel... yeah realistic for you is going to take shawarma and people's in one screen showing we love the avengers I want Tonys beard?... yeah Good for you... I prefer this ending all the way...

And also MOS didn't make the numbers they were expecting at the box office even though it's still a success.
They didn't expect a billion even more from a reboot... the numbers were great cause is a reinvention not following movie as TDK or TA... but many people seem to dont understand...

fighting as an irrational beign as Zod IMO he wanted Kal... he wanted to make him suffer..Zod also wanted to make Clark kill him or if no Zod will kill Supes.. he has no purpose in life... Zod didn't tackle supes throught the space.. Zod tackled but Superman threw him throught space and to the satelite...

eh yes he did, Zod grabbed Kal's cape and threw him into 2 buildings then tackled him and flew straight-upwards with him. When Supes threw him at the satelite, they were already in space

On another note, so I was thinking about the infamous neck-snapping scene again and then I was reading the Injustice: Gods Among Us comic where Superman gets duped by the Joker and kills Lois inadvertently as well as reading the latest issue of The Adventures of Superman(where Superman gets duped by Luthor into stopping all these different disasters only to miss one where somebody dies) and I came to this thought.

Is one of Superman's character flaws is that he's a tad easier to fool and manipulate?(In no way I'm saying that Superman is dumb, stupid, unintelligent at all as people like Frank Miller paint him to be. What I'm saying is, do you think Superman's the type to leap before he looks while for Batman, it's the other way around? Especially when lives are in danger?)

Did Zod use Clark's love of Earth's people to manipulate him into killing him just to haunt Clark from the grave, as said in the classic line by Faora that "A good death is its own reward"?

Would any of you say it's a valid interpretation?
That's a good point, never thought of that

You know, on the Marvel threads I've been on, no one blasts DC. They have their opinions about the movies themselves, but they don't take cheap shots at the creators.

I just don't understand in MoS, why Clark couldn't save his father from a tornado. The majority of the people clearly aren't going to be looking at what he's doing, but sheltering themselves from the tornado. And even if they did see, they would question their own eye witness accounts based on the circumstances. In other parts of the movie, Clark clearly uses his superpowers in more overt ways where more people would witness what he was doing.

I agree with the scenario of Clark's father "sacrificing" himself to protect Clark, but I don't agree in the way which it was done in the movie.
