Yes. But I views those situations as beyond dire.

How often would you say the League deals in beyond dire situations? It's just about everytime there's a signal on the moon, otherwise people might just call the cops. Obviously, they are the last line of defense in the DC Universe and should be trying to eradicate threats rather than doin the paliative care for the planet they're used to.

That's why Manchester Black's Elite was on the right path for a second, they just went about it too callously. They had no concern for collateral damage. Superman went after them with his usual kid glove efforts and could've very easily lost Lois and had his identity revealed to Luthor as a result.

Bottom line, real-life human law enforcers use lethal force everyday to protect the innocent from the bloodthirsty and maniacal. When it happens, they have to prove there was no other choice and the action was committed in the best interest of the greater good. I would expect no less from Superman.

Now, if you wanna admit his no killing policy makes it easy on writers, I can understand and yield to that.
