  1. I'd rather not. His Superman doesn't have a Lois,...

    I'd rather not. His Superman doesn't have a Lois, Perry, or Jimmy. Routh makes sense as a template for his looks and maybe some aspects of his personality, but that's about it. Everything else...
  2. I'm pretty sure Superman (and Supergirl) were...

    I'm pretty sure Superman (and Supergirl) were like they are for us in the BL universe: fictional characters. It was kind of implied, I believe (info here), when Supergirl was mentioned in the first...
  3. Fair enough. I will say that I just want fewer...

    Fair enough. I will say that I just want fewer stories where Lois dies. Period. As a fan, I'm so tired of it being used as a plot point.
  4. I don't disagree that it's nice to have a new and...

    I don't disagree that it's nice to have a new and more positive spin on the general idea of Superman's reaction to Lois' death. I just don't know if it the situations are comparable enough to make...
  5. Well, I mean the critical difference is that this...

    Well, I mean the critical difference is that this Superman still had his son, Jason. That's not something KC or Injustice Superman had, so it's not clear how this Superman would have handled things...
  6. The Bale films are morally bankrupt. Batman is...

    The Bale films are morally bankrupt. Batman is portrayed as a moral paragon for refusing to kill yet kills his enemies left and right. It is a hypocritical morality that gets away with the magic...
  7. No one is even remotely suggesting superheroes...

    No one is even remotely suggesting superheroes should be killing people left and right. The idea is that killing in order to preserve innocent life should be an option for any superhero if there...
  8. What you're describing is sanitizing violence in...

    What you're describing is sanitizing violence in the case of Batman, which makes people less likely to consider it critically, and a power fantasy of morality for Superman, which doesn't offer...
  9. Well, I'm not going to ding MOS or BvS or setting...

    Well, I'm not going to ding MOS or BvS or setting up an issue and following up on it, especially since the follow up was what people here were saying they wanted, for a JL film plot that never came...
  10. It was followed up in BvS. He could have just...

    It was followed up in BvS. He could have just killed Batman to save his mother, but he tried to apologize and reason with him first. He then had to fight for his own life, because Batman was trying...
  11. He does kill, though, most of the time. Even if...

    He does kill, though, most of the time. Even if the narrative doesn't focus on it, it is obvious that his actions would have that effect on some of those he fights. For example, it's silly how...
  12. He's interested in Superman being an actual...

    He's interested in Superman being an actual character with agency and choices that matter. Superman isn't that if the narrative is always warped around him to provide him with that "other way" to...
  13. Guys, please. Snyder's quote about the killing in...

    Guys, please. Snyder's quote about the killing in MOS:

    If there were more adventures for our Superman to go on, then you are also given this thing where you don't know 100 per cent what he's gonna...

    Cavill's Superman was embraced pretty well at...

    Cavill's Superman was embraced pretty well at first. The reason for some of the tension in MOS was because his reveal was simultaneous with Zod's ultimatum, but he quickly won the military over and...
  15. Rule of law? Is that why KC Superman puts all the...

    Rule of law? Is that why KC Superman puts all the metas he deems too dark and irredeemable for society into a gulag?
  16. It is not fundamentally wrong. If Lois is alive...

    It is not fundamentally wrong. If Lois is alive during the events of Kingdom Come, then the story plays out completely differently. With Lois in Clark's life, does he have someone to help him cope...
  17. Thanks for further elaborating on all the details...

    Thanks for further elaborating on all the details that make Kingdom Come the absolute worst kind of Superman story.
  18. I still have no clue why Welling not wearing the...

    I still have no clue why Welling not wearing the suit means his Superman is retired. If we don't see his Superman in action, there are plenty of reasons for that to happen: his Earth is threatened,...
  19. Can someone explain why the new photo of Tom and...

    Can someone explain why the new photo of Tom and Erica in any way suggests his Superman is retired? Clark Kent is Superman's secret identity, and all we see is Welling's Clark hanging out at his...

    I'm not sure what this has to do with their son's name.
  22. I think it's just a shame that DC and its writers...

    I think it's just a shame that DC and its writers couldn't be bothered to come up with names for Kal and Diana's children that aren't entirely tied to Kal and give Diana's identity some attention. It...

    The writers are wrong because they take the wrong lessons away from AUs. The AUs are to blame because they popularize bad ideas that DC and its writers duplicate to make a quick buck.

  24. It's understandable why Jonathan is a common name...

    It's understandable why Jonathan is a common name for Superman's son, regardless of who the mother is. I do get that even though I'd prefer the mothers get to contribute names more often and to have...

    No, I'm sorry, quality is not determined by sales figures. Garbage sells all the time. It's legitimately bad storytelling to use tired tropes like women-in-refrigerators to turn Superman into a dark...
