Superman will kill his villain when 4 civilians are in danger, rather than the millions who have died in the destruction of Smallville and Metropolis.

    Jonathan Kent thinks it may be acceptable to do nothing while children drown, but saving the family dog is a must.

      If shooting an entire clip of bullets at a female alien doesn't work, try your knife.

        You don't need any prior job history or journalistic experience/credentials to get a job as a reporter for The Daily Planet.

          That still makes them far more qualified than anyone working at the NY Times, The Washington Post, CNN, ABC, CBS, NBC or MSNBC

        If Jor-El did not send Superman to Earth, it wouldn't need saving.

            It's perfectly fine to take out your anger toward a drunk trucker by impaling his truck with half a dozen tree trunks. Not the least bit suspicious at all.

            Don't send your teenage son who can run faster than a speeding bullet to save your dog from a tornado. Do it by your visibly frail, old farmer self.

              ok since his dad said that he needed to hide his superpowers but he could have just run normally to save his dad

              Jor-El thinks it is wise to tell Zod that he just had a baby, and that he just shot this baby into space.

                It didn't dawn on that family to simply move forward and out of the way as Zod's heat vision was very slowly inching its way to them from their right.

                  That's exactly what I was thinking when I first saw it. Then I thought, "Couldn't Zod just turn his eyes?"

                  Over half of Metropolis was literally turned to ash during the final battle between Zod's army and Superman, yet the Daily Planet is still standing.

                  When you've just seen a minigun shoot an alien with no effect, and said alien kill half of your squad, the logical thing to do is keep firing your assault rifle at it until it kills you or your bullets run dry.

                    And it was Uranium bullets from a Warthog plane. Yeah your 9mm bullets or the knife are better that.

                  When a kid runs off and locks himself in the school closet, it is the teacher's duty to try and get you to come out... while all the rest of the children come along and gossip about you.

                    You have a terraforming machine that can make any planet -and hundred of additional planets- habitable by your kind. Insist on terraforming the single habitable planet in the star system -and possibly the only one left in the entire galaxy- and by such triggering the fury of its protector. Also, even if your archnemesis has within him the genetic data of your people and you need to kill him to extract it, it's still better to terraform another planet, rebuild forces and then concentrate fire on that single being and not an entire planet.

                      They could terraform Mars. And build Krypton with billions of Supermen and -women.

                    When you want to punish a criminal, make sure he and his followers will be the only ones who survive your planet's destruction. Sure they're the ones you want to be the lone survivors of your race.

                      It's okay to risk revealing your powers by destroying a trucker's vehicle, but it's not okay to save your father (who risks his life to save a dog).

                        Kryptonians are genetically engineered for specific roles but Jor-El, a scientist, can beat the crap out of Zod, a warrior.

                          Krypton figured that the most fitting punishment for Zod and his soldiers is to send them all OFF the planet where everyone's about to die.

                            It took Kal-El 30 years on earth to develop that level of powers he showed in the movie, but it took only mere minutes for the villains to gain the same powers when the plot demanded it.

                              Harvesting the core of your own planet is a great idea. Don't pay attention when your PLANET'S LEADING SCIENTIST tells you otherwise.

                                If an alien has lived on Earth for 33 years and a mysterious epidemic hasn't broken out as a result, it's pretty safe to say he wasn't carrying any of his homeworld's diseases with him.

                                  When there is a twister touched down less than a mile away, it makes sense to risk your life for the one member of your family that can be replaced for about $100.

                                  Only Superman could save the whole Earth from destruction and fight several battles against other Supermen, and come out without a spec of dirt or strand of hair out of place.

                                    When trying to fight a machine with arms and gravity fields protecting it at short range, it'd be awful handy if you had some sort of ray to destroy it from long range.

                                        Jor El said "THIS IS MADNESS!" because Snyder wants to remind us he directed 300.

                                          General Zod has a bad habit of only bringing two people to confront people like Jor El or Kal El.

                                              It was mentioned by the either the writers or the director (I can't recall who) that they were brought by Aquaman and that he saved Superman in that scene.

                                              You have 2 fathers. The foster one wants you to hide, who you really are and let people die. The biological one wants you to become a hero and reveal your powers to people. You love them both, so you reveal your powers to people and let most of them die.

                                              It has been proven that a Superman film can be made without either Kryptonite or Lex Luthor.

                                              When a space-faring Alien civilization accidentally destroys their home planet, any suggestion of going somewhere, anywhere else will be scoffed at, because with nearly infinite planets in the Universe, there is "nowhere to go."

                                                "space faring Alien civilization" WITH *terraforming* abilities.

                                                Arguable. When General Zod flashbacks show him looking for survivors on the Krypton Outposts all over the galaxy he didn't find any. So it can be speculated that the Kryptonians depend on their homeworld to survive, although why Zod and Co survived is unknown.

                                              If your only purpose in life is to protect your people, go ahead and fight to the death with literally the last member of your people.

                                                That last member contains all the genetic data of the people dying with Krypton's explosion, and the only way to extract it is to kill him. But that last member is the good guy because he is special (the only one born naturally) and thus can start a new page while the big bad option would result in history repeat itself and Krypton (oups Earth) exploding again

                                                            It always makes me happy for Mr. Wilhelm to show up in any film.

OR...he COULD just fly through the ship a couple hundred times real fast and destroy it, thereby preventing Zod from doing anything to begin with. Yeah, it would make sense and save hundreds of thousands of lives...but would it make a great CGI disaster movie?

In Andromeda, Dylan was engineered to live on a heavy world, so in Earth gravity, he seems to be very strong and ruggedly built. Meanwhile, if an unmodified human went to a heavy world, he'd probably find it difficult to even breathe. I get the feeling they were going for the same effect here. Of course, in Andromeda, that gave him about twice Earth strenght, not a billion Earth strength.

So Lois knows Superman's name is Clark from earlier right? And it does make you wondering though how the glasses will fool everyone who probably recognized his face now.

Mash movies like Star Trek and it's space theme and ships; Lord of the rings/Avatar -like battles on Krypton. Add boring Matrix Neo-Smith battle near the end. Finally, pretend it's okay for everyone to forget Superman's identity at the end.

He always leaves from a zone he saves everyone, to maintain his secret identity. Hell, it even looks like he is a magnet for disasters. He really oughta leave the mankind.
