I love when people say Superman should’ve just taken the battle elsewhere, then conveniently forget he threw Zod into space — destroying a Wayne satellite in the process — just to see Zod bring him right back down to Metropolis.
For the rest of you the neck snap was necessary because Zod wanted to die. Did you pay attention to the two different “A good death is its own reward” lines? Zod’s purpose in life was gone and he wanted to die. He even told Superman “Either you die, or I do.” Then he fought to die a warrior’s death, exactly what he wanted. Which is why instead of actually trying to break a headlock, he instead just tried to fry civilians and kept goading Superman to execute him.

My father believed that if the world found out who I really was… ..they’d reject me out of fear.
I let my father die because I trusted him, because he was convinced that I had to wait. That the world was not ready.

Why would you say man of steel isn't mediocre?

I’m assuming you want something more involved than, “because I enjoyed it,” eh, random Anon?

Well, firstly, Henry Cavill’s performance was great.  I really liked him as Clark.  And also the Smallville scenes where Clark was younger… I’ve always felt like coming into his powers would be confusing and scary (maybe even almost traumatic) for Clark and this movie showed that.  There’s also the fact that this was one of the first versions of a Superman origin story that gave Lara a more active role, rather than just being Jor-El’s wife and little more.  I really appreciated getting to see her (and in fact, she was my favorite thing about the Krypton sequence).  Clark’s relationship with Martha was lovely as well.  There were other things I enjoyed about it but these were the first to come to mind.  

Was it a perfect movie?  No, not at all… and I never said it was.  But I did like it… though I suppose I understand why a lot of people didn’t.  


When we were married, everyone asked me the same question. “You’re Superman. Why Lois Lane?” I knew she was the girl for me the moment I met her. Lois was brutally honest, curious as a cat, and you’d never get the last word in. She was the most human woman I’d ever met. But on the inside she was more super than I could ever be.

It is a remarkable dichotomy. In many ways, Clark is the most human of us all. Then… He shoots fire from the skies and it is difficult not to think of him as a god. And how fortunate we all are that it does not occur to him. -Batman
