Superheroes are generally held to a very high moral standard when it comes to killing, even if they are evil. Take Batman for example; Bruce Wayne holds himself to an outstanding moral code when it comes to taking ones life. There isn't a superhero that is held to this standard more than Superman. Of course, the no kill rule has it's exceptions, but you may be surprised at the amount of times that Superman has killed on screen! Thanks to the guys at Mr Sunday Movies, we have an entire list compiled of all the times that Superman has taken a life on the big screen! Check it out here:
The death toll is INCALCULABLE!
We may not know exactly how many people have died at the fault of Superman, but it sure is a lot! Now that the amount of deaths probably caused in Man of Steel are apparent, It is no wonder that Bat-Man is trying to take him out! Superman was not at fault, if it weren't for Clark, Zod probably would have leveled the entire city! At the end of they day Superman is still the greatest protector of Earth, and he genuinely is a nice guy, a bit irresponsible, but nice!
