    Look....This type of "Doomsday" scenario has never been written this way. Writer always pull the reserves card. We are debating hypotheticals from a "common sense" stand point. If there are no reserves, and if the situation calls for their "full strength" and if they have to choose between anothe country or their home country, it's a no-brainer!!

    I mean do you seriously thin clark could live with himself if he didn't choose his loved ones first?? Barry not choosing to save Iris???

    But that has nothing to do with patriotism. If Lois lived in London, then in that scenario, Clark would fly right to jolly ol' england. Most likely, the League would coordinate things to do the most good they could by seinding the right people to the right places. Some would go for it. Some wouldn't. But that has nothing to do with how devoted to their country they are, and everything to do with how devoted to their families they are.

    Exactly. When Lois got shot in Umec, he flew there to help her. Does that mean he loves Umec more than other countries??

    Lois is not America. When he flies to Lois to help her, he's flying to Lois to help her, not America.

    I ask you the same question I asked you a page ago and you never answered: What if both Chicago and Metropolis was burning, and Superman goes to Metropolis instead of Chicago? What does that have anything to do with his nationality or patriotism?

    So... if Perry and Jimmy were burning, and Supes went to save Jimmy, it'd be homeboy favoritism? :confused:

    Nah, Superman would be more than happy to kill Jimmy over and over again.

    And has!

    Hell, according to those he wouldn't be in such a hurry to save Lois, either.

    Well, everyone knows that Superman is like Angel from the Buffyverse. He seems like a nice, honorable guy most of the time, but deep down he's a sadistic mass murderer with a somewhat fake sounding Irish accent.

    Yeah, you've got a point. Still, everyone knows that all nice guys who deep down are sadistic mass murderers and are super powered have fake Irish accents.

    Unless they're already Irish. Then they have fake Eskimo accents. Don't ask me why; I don't make the rules. :o

    Angel was Irish. He was just a crappy Irishman.
