> During this possible future story arc Supe had 2 chances to kill Khyber.
> the first time he refused it led to the near destruction of the planet.
> The second time he held back he got himself killed. Is there a point that even Supes should drop his never kill policy ? I seem to get the impersion that no crime(mass murder caused by Khyber)is great enough for Supes to cross his line. If he had killed Khyber in their final fight he would have been around to help and possibly save the surviors of earth. He seemed almost selfish to me in that he's willing to follow his moral standards
> even if others(the Earth) die.

He's selfish for wanting to uphold a moral standard. See, this is what's wrong with the world. People give up their morals because they react without thinking. Superman killed once. It damn near destroyed him. He cannot in good conscious do it again, even if it will cost the lives of others. Zod, Faora and Quex-Ul of the pocket universe had destroyed their world. They were going to do it to his world, if they got their powers back. Superman thought he was doing the right thing, but he paid a steep price for it. One that had nearly cost him his sanity and forced him into exile. If not for the Eradicator, he would've never fully recovered. So while he has to face this tough decision again, he will have to determine if he should or shouldn't. He can stop Khyber, given enough time, without having to kill. Despite how powerful and dangerous he is. He just needs to approach that battle differently from what his future self did.

That's how I see it.

>Superman killed once.

It looks like that has been retconned out of his history.
