    You've put your finger on what bothered me most about Man of Steel. Superman and his enemies just went at each other, and Superman didn't pay any attention at all to what must have been (at least!) tens of thousands of civilian deaths. Or would anyone like to argue that the multiple skyscrapers that fell to the ground were completely evacuated?

I couldn't believe what I was seeing. There's no way those buildings were empty.

    I remember sitting in the theater in horror, wondering who wrote this crap. The Superman I remember reading would have left the villain in a split second to rescue as many people as he could... but Cavill's Superman didn't even seem to notice the civilian deaths. He was too busy punching Zod into the next building. And the next. And the next. It's unavoidable - Superman is as guilty of those deaths as Zod was.

Do you know there are comic book fans who don't even care about that? It's pretty scary. Who the heck is Superman if not the great cosmic protector of Metropolis and the Earth in general?

DC allowed a Superman film to become a Godzilla film - with Superman as Godzilla.
