Did anyone else find it slightly unsettling that Lobdell suggested Superman would be conflicted about what to do about saving Krypton versus saving Earth in his MTV interview?
I think that emotionally Superman is very conflicted because any other day of the week if someone came to him and he believed it was possible to save Krypton, he would be very supportive of the idea. But as it becomes clear that H'el can't accomplish that even if it were possible without first destroying Earth and its entire solar system, it puts him in an awkward position because if it were possible he would like to help, but since it would mean the death of millions of people, he would have to weigh that against his family history and lineage and stuff, so I think he's very conflicted at this point.
I do understand that Superman would ideally want to save both worlds, but to me there should be no conflict--no emotional or moral conflict--over sacrificing one planet to resurrect another. I also feel as if in his own way Morrison already touched on these themes in Action Comics when Superman was asked to choose between the Collector's bottled Kandor and bottled Metropolis.
