Superman / Batman: The Movie!

I just saw the Superman / Batman movie produced by DC's animation studio. It continues what I find to be an odd tick of DC's superhero world in general.

The core plot is that Lex Luthor frames Superman for the murder of Metallo. Of course, we know this is crazy. Superman doesn't kill people. It's just not in his nature.

Except he spends a crap load of time dropping cars on bad guys, using his heat vision to blow cars up and beating the crap out of them with his superstrength. As far as I can tell this is a bit like saying the A-Team couldn't kill anyone cause it's not in them. I suggest it's only cause they are horrible shots.

The only reason Superman hasn't left a swath of dead people in his super-powered wake is because of the stories inconsistent approach to what it takes to kill someone in the movie.
