Would you want him to either be the real hero behind stopping Manhatten in the end, or else shown as being the real evil behind this all?

IF Oz turns out to be Jor (and by all indications, he is), then I hope Oz helps Superman in his battle with Dr. Manhattan. I can just picture how it happens, too. Superman is in deep trouble and Dr. Manhattan is about to kill Superman. But Oz gets in the way and sacrifices his life to save Superman's own. Then Superman loses his father...again. Then he dials it up to 11 and manages to beat Dr. Manhattan.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
