> 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.

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.

The problem with Superman, Batman, or anybody killings 'bad' guys is...
1) No one person should have that responsibilty. It belongs to the government to determine which crimnals should be killed.

2) What would be the guidelines to decide who dies and who doesn't.

I may be wrong, but I doubt it.
