    Why didn't Diana funnel the same power to zap Steppenwolf down?

Because she cannot summon lightning bolts on her own. The only reason she managed to kill Ares was reflecting his lightning back to him.


      And Superman shoudl been shown physically superior to her....


Because he's always been shown as stronger than her in whatever medium?

    Diana is now the team's inspiration and focal point, a role that was traditionally Superman's.

Good. I may not like Wonder Twig, but she's twice the hero Super Necksnapper will ever be. She's inspired more in her limited appearances than Super Necksnapper has ever done in the entire history of the DCEU.

    But that Superman isn't here. Instead we have an uber powerful bull in a china shop. A man who destroyed Smallville, destroyed Metropolis, wilfully murdered a man, threatened the US government and military and wrecked millions of dollars worth of their property. A man whose failure in the simple act of communication has led half the world to worship him as a god, and the other half to fear and hate him.

Which is exactly why he doesn't deserve to be the Justice League's inspiration and focal point. The team needs a much better role model.

    Even his resurrection was only done because the JL needed a weapon, not out of love. If Steppenwolf hadn't attacked, they'd have left him to rot in the ground. As Man of Steel himself says in the film, 'I didn't think you did it because you liked me'.

I would have left him to rot in the ground. Why form a team to take down Steppenwolf only for Super Necksnapper to make that a pointless endeavor by beating Steppenwolf all by himself? If that was all that was needed, then why did Bat-Punisher even NEED to form a team in the first place? Dumb!

    There's been ZERO thought given to these characters in the Snyderverse. Flash is reduced to comic relief. Batman is a reactionary moron. Aquaman behaves more like a street thug than a monarch. Cyborg is a potential traitor whose life was saved by Apokolyptian technology rather than his father's genius. Wonder Woman is back to being third rate whenever men are around.

What else do you expect from Zack Snyder and whoever wrote Justice League? These people do NOT know how to create a good a Super-Hero movie. I'm still wondering how long, and how many movies, will it take for the audience to FINALLY realize that?

    And Superman has been reduced to a deus ex machina instead of an integral part of a team.


    They've got these characters completely wrong, and it's a BIG part of he reason the DC films don't do well.

Both casting wise and characterization. Agreed on this as well.

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?
