Superman killing the animated universe

#1 Edited by yourverysilly (4 posts) - - Show Bio

In several of the episodes and movies, superman doesn't seem to have a problem with killing now and again, what does everyone think about that?

That he does what he has to do to keep the city of metropils under control

                but most DC heroes see killing as the ultimate injustice, noone should do it whatever, it is an evil act, paticularly if your standing up for something and don't work for the government and have powers which mean that you don't have to kill.

 the only time he killed was some kryptonian villains after which he swore never to do it again, and I don't think he has. but maybe I'm wrong if there are dozens!

X ray vision is a reflex for him whenever he goes into a situation, he immediatly scans everywhere and can use superspeed to evacuate the area if needs be. He avoids collateral damage very carefully, because he knows how much he could potentially cause, in a fight if he gets chucked into a building his senses and reactions are so acute that he could save anyone in trouble or avoid them. That's my opinion anyway!

I think it's an important topic because it's celarly important to a lot of the heroes, paticularly batman and superman. not so much wonder woman!

Superman hasn't kiled anyone directly other than Doomsday. If anyone knows of any others, I would like to know.

Superman is the greatest hero in comics by the way.

I don't recall but a robot isn't really taking a life. Android maybe, cyborg definitely, but not a robot.

Depends on whether they have sentient intelligence or not, not what they are.

But a robot is a simple machine with no will. Therefore they are robotic in nature with a set program. If they somehow obtain sentience they become something else.
