> Yes, well, in my opinion, to have such a moral code makes you morally unsound. There are many, many people that deserve nothing less than death, because even the fact that they exist is harmful to others.

And now for a paraprhased quote!

"There are many that live that deserve death, and there are many that die that deserve life. Can you give it to them? Do not be too quick to deal in death and judgement, for even the very wise cannot see all ends."

My opinion? No one person should ever be allowed to pass judgement on someone. Whether or not someone lives or dies in not your call. Especially in Superman's case. He's the most powerful being on that earth and is looked up to and idolized. If he starts to kill because *he* feels it's warranted, then that makes him no better than Luthor. The ends do not justify the means.

As for Batman I have another quote!

"Valuing life is not weakness. And disregarding it is not strenght."

Batman may not be the big role model, but he isn't narrow minded enough to think there's only one way to solve a problem.

And Wonder Woman? While I don't agree with her decesion, I have to admit, there probably was no other solution. Sure they could have erased Lord's memory, but then there's Identity Crisis which addresses that. Well then, they could have a telepath put psychic blocks or some such nonsense on Lord, preventing him from ever controlling Superman. But I'm sure she's realized over the years that villains are nothing if not creative.

Seriously, that's bleeding-heart claptrap. Each of us, as a part of society, has the duty to take lives to protect lives. Killing is not bad, in and of itself, it's the reason why that determines that. Killing a villain to prevent countless future deaths is immensely better than Luthor... or Joker... or whomever.
