    I hate to break this to you, but DC can be considered just as brainless as Marvel.

    We don't have to wait and see. MOS pretty much summed up what the DCCU will be.

    It's like watching a comic book film that was created in the post Keene Act world of Watchmen.

    Unfortunately (for DC Fans), if we're talking about how these movies will be remembered:

    Iron Man will be remembered as a runaway success because it was fun, witty, action-packed, and humorous (i.e. comic-bookesque)

    Man of Steel will forever be remembered as the movie where Superman KILLS another person (and has little regard for the city he is decimating).... in his first movie-outing no less. (NOT very comic-bookesque)



    And, to be fair, I was comparing the box office numbers of the latest of the Marvel and DC movies.
    Masters of the Universe and ThunderCats - together for the first time! Pure AWESOME!

    I don't have a problem with the villain killing, he's done that before in the 40s comics by not saving them if they jump off a cliff. I DO have a problem with him not flying away from the city so the damage can be minimized. even reeves superman stopped thefight after a while,and even then, he kept it small scale damage.

    (and yes,I realize that was limited to the effects of the time, but still.... you didn't see him flying through buildings)

    Hell, even the dragonball Z action scenes mention taking the fight away from the city when they do fight near one, and that's what this battle reminded me of.

    Arguably. Some people loved MOS and some people hated it.

    Man of Steel did it's job and made everyone forget about Superman Returns. Superman saved people in Returns, but that's all he did. Some fans complained that Superman didn't hit anyone, one of the staples in Superman adventures, as well as saving people.

    In the DCCU, Superman doesn't have the Kryptonian imprisonment options that his comic counterpart does. It was also his first day on the job. I could actually see the more experienced Batman criticizing the rookie Superman's tactics of fighting villains in populated areas. I'll say that it's good that Supes will be held accountable for his actions.

    They DID wind up in space, away from the city. Zod took the fight back down to Earth. And that was the threat of Zod...he's military trained, the more experienced fighter and getting more powerful by the second. He learned how to FLY in that fight. It's like YOU trying to throw a Green Beret out of YOUR house.

    The problem was Superman's inexperience.

    Darn...it's happening again isn't it? Man of Steel STILL creates debates to this day....
