SPOILER MAN OF STEEL ENDING SO IF YOU DON’T WANT TO KNOW, NOW IS THE TIME TO STOP READING
At the end of the movie, Clark kills Zod. They are having a chaotic fight scene and Clark put Zod in a chock hold to try to stop him. Zod turned the tables around by trying to kill a family with his newly acquired laser eyes. Clark had no choice other than to break Zod’s neck. Afterwards he was so upset he let out a cry.
My starting problem with this is, when were you not trying to kill him? The men had a full on battle, throwing each other through buildings and all other things that would kill anyone else. When Clark was shooting lasers at Zod…..was he trying to kill him then? I understand that he felt bad, but what other choice did he have?
The other option was the let Zod live, he would’ve vaporized the family he was shooting at and then killed all of Earth. That would’ve happened if Clark didn’t kill him. All of Earth would be destroyed…..or Zod? I’m reading a few articles about this and people think Clark did the wrong thing.
Either he kills him OR they go in the direction every TV show goes. You fight the bad guy, they get defeated and return another time.
The videogame Injustice says it best. The Joker is in custody and says something like “I’ll just get out and kill again,”.
In the movie Batman: Under The Red Hood, Batman explains how badly he wants to kill the Joker. He says “this man has filled up cemetery’s ,” another good reason to end him.
In X-Men First Class, Magneto killed Shaw and Charles was disgusted by this. Really? A mastermind with unlimited power…you think you can lock this man up? A lot of villains in these series deserve to be killed.
It’s downright stupid to think that locking these men up and just letting them return later on is the better option than killing them. It annoys me that letting them live is deemed “the right thing to do,” by society.
Weigh in your opinion because I would love to hear what people think about this.
