People seem to forget that at this point he still isn't the Superman that we all know. He is still learning this is basically his year one where he is still trying to come into being Superman. He did what he had to do with Zod and honestly that should be the point where he realizes that no matter how great the threat is he doesn't want to kill. I personally think in the sequels and in Justice Leage we will start to see more of the Superman that we know since he will have had more time.
I'm not sure how long the new 52 is going to last. I think when the universes are fixed there are going to be some events that remain from the old and the new and I honestly believe Damian is going to be alive.
@thetimestreamer: You should also remember and take into account that this kid is meeting someone who seems to be one of his heroes and someone who took part in a huge event that occured during his lifetime. Tony intrigues him because of his role in the battle of New York as well as his Iron Man persona. Of course the kid is going to ask him a thousand questions and he wants to help as much as he can because it makes him feel almost like a side kick and a helper.
@mrgutts: I am from Tennessee and I can tell you that most of us dont have those thick ass accents that people seem to expect because of media. I know more people who sound like Harley than people who sound like Honey Boo Boo and her family. I get extremely irritated when movies and televison shows portray everyone from Tennessee as having thick, country, hickish accents
@thetimestreamer: The kid didn't dissect him he did exactly what every child does he asked a helluva lot of questions and used the answers and what he could figure out to ask other questions and come to conclusions. Children aren't stupid
