    Also I kinda wish everyone would stop saying that a falling building is obviously trying to invoke 9/11

    I'm pretty sure falling buildings are a thing that has existed for more than twelve years now

    SPOILERS and actual question for anyone that saw it
    Why does everyone keep bringing up what Superman can do at that point instead of breaking his neck? Of course he could stop the heat vision, and drag the battle on for hours more. But there's nothing else he can do at that point. They had one shot at the Phantom Zone, and it's gone. There's no kryptonite. Zod will not give up. He had to be killed.
    They could have written the situation in such a way that Superman would not be forced to make that kind of choice.

    It doesn't matter what they could have wrote, it matters what they did write

    And in the context of what they did write, there weren't any viable alternatives

    Reminder if this were any other character in any other piece of fiction, no one would be screaming "the writers should have written him out of this problem." That's a copout.

    Well Inception for example had falling buildings that were just falling buildings.

    Maybe

    Just maybe

    The fact that his situations are so conveniently written are the reason behind why everyone calls Superman boring

    What they wrote is the problem for people though.

    They don't like the way it was written and wish that scenario was written in a different way.

    And they're not writing it for any other character, they're writing a VERY SPECIFIC one, who has an established tone and people have established bias towards that tone or some other tone or whatever

    you're arguing a tautology

    the way they wrote him is valid because that's the way they wrote him
