Man of Steel is certainly one of the most divisive comic book movies ever. Over a year after the Man of Steel’s release, comic book industry folks are still debating the merits of the film.
Adams has some great points, especially when it comes the quality of films produced at Marvel despite them owning less of their main material (Spiderman, Fantastic Four, X-Men) while DC has everything. I will never be able to look at the scene in Man of Steel now with Zod and not think "Superman...use your hand to cover his eyes man" now.
Was that a possibility though? I mean he was holding Zod down with all his strength with one arm and his head with another. Releasing his grip on one hand would have allowed Zod to escape Supe's grip. While releasing the other hand would have allowed Zod to fry at least one family member before he got his hand over Zod's eyes. And wouldn't that have hurt Supe's hand pretty badly? Faora reacted to it with a lot of pain when he hit her armored hand. Now Supe's hand would probably have been severely hurt allowing Zod to escape. It already took Superman's full strength and undivided attention to stop Zod. Letting him slip while his hand was hurt would have given Zod a huge edge. Sorry I just don't see how that would have helped. Clark was unexperienced and I feel he did what he had to in order to save 7 billion people. If he went down the planet was pretty much finished.
Weird double post... scroll down lol.
@Porcelain_Chicken, my bad Foxtrot. Had an awkward double post thingy. Reading through the comments in article it really gives you a sense of what this Neal guy is. Sounds like you're average internet troll tbh. Angry and keyboard warrior-ing the internet. I agree the outcome would have been catastrophic. The only edge Superman had over Zod (who was a trained soldier might i remind you) was that he was used to his powers. While Zod had just acquired his only hours earlier. Even so Zod was growing accustomed to his powers at an alarming rate, it was only a matter of time before he landed a lethal blow on Kal. Kal did the only thing he could. Now Neal's heat ray/eyeball rant was just stupid.
