JerkStore: I like Man of Steel quite a bit, but there are just some holes that yank me out of the suspension of disbelief every time:

The "singularity" they create that sucks the Kryptonian ship into a black hole, along with almost everything else. Debris on the ground is getting pulled UP into it. Yet Lois Lane falls DOWN out of the airplane that crashed into it (i.e. ground-zero of the singularity). WTF?

Zod has the ability to colonize and terraform any planet, so he chooses genocide instead of, say, moving next door to Mars or something. Given that, perhaps Kal El would have been more cooperative with the DNA. Kryptonians, including Zod, were not inherently evil.


Makes for a more interesting movie?

Why does the military let Lois Lane tag along EVERYWHERE, including the plane dropping the bomb?

She knows who he is.  She is the one who knew about the plan to destroy the mothership.

Why does General Zod let Lois Lane tag along EVERYWHERE, including their mother ship?

She knows who he is.  It's one of the reasons they knew about Smallville (they got the info from either her or Clark)

Why didn't ALL the Kryptonians descend on Metropolis instead of two or three at a time? They would ALL be super powered, no? My hope before I saw the film was that they would explain it by saying that Clark's power comes from the sun, but it's a cumulative thing. He's been there longer and therefore was far more powerful for it. The Kryptonians were powerful, but maybe it was their armor offering them parity with Kal-El. The only way to explain his ability to defeat Zod is that he remains considerably more powerful, which overcomes his total lack of combat skills.

The suits give them powers similar to Clark's.  Zod even admits when Clark says they can share the planet that he will not make Kryptonians suffer years of pain to adapt to the atmosphere as Clark has.  So while Zod was quickly adapting to the powers, he was still likely weaker than Clark.  Not to mention Clark got one advantage the entire fight when he landed on Zod after falling from space.  Until that point, it had pretty much been a one sided fight with Zod beating the ever loving shiat out of clark.

I just thought it wasn't any fun.

Stratohead: Batman could easily kill the Joker, and by all rights probably should...but he won't due to his code, which is entirely unflexable


There was a line in "The Dark Knight Returns" where Batman thinks about all of the people he killed because he let The Joker live so long.

Neeek: Seriously, you are just wrong.


So they each have about one scene per movie where they rescue someone who isn't a love interest?  Oh man, I'm waaaaay wrong.
