People make a big deal about the finale of Man of Steel, and how much destruction Superman caused in Metropolis. When Zod and Kal start fighting, they’re in the remnants of an obliterated area of the city. Thousands of people are dead because of Zod. Zod’s threatening to kill millions more if he lives. He’s literally spelling it out for you: no human-inhabited Earth can be safe with Kal and Zod in the same galaxy. So, at this point, Supe’s all about stopping Zod.
Then, Zod rips off his armor and starts flying like it was his job, bragging about being hot-shot warrior stuff. He knocks Kal into an inhabited part of the city, untouched by Zod’s World Engine. From that point on, every single hit Superman gets on Zod puts him away from buildings, minimizing damage to the city around him. The only damage he does is Zod punching him through buildings. Then the finale, Zod won’t stop ever, and the breaking of necks.
Kal had to stop genocide before it left the building, and he didn’t exactly have a black hole to throw Zod into.
Good movie, good ending, now let’s get Ben Affleck up in here!
