It's funny, I was idly wondering if Superman, should he ever fight a vampire, would be okay with killing them. Then I remembered that Superman's been through pretty much every possible storyline and I could just look it up.
Batman's a faggot, and is the reason Gotham's a shithole, what's your point?
Like most things it's dependent on who's writing. Some might see it as a loophole, but logically speaking it's the exact same thing as killing.
You were more right when you said it depends on the writer
>logically speaking it's the exact same thing as killing.
because I can't agree with this part, it makes assumptions on the reasoning behind not killing. The only occasions where this is true are when they don't kill due to sentience or because of the violence of the act itself.
The superhero no-killing code is just Comics Code Authority enforced on all characters, which had a loophole of allowing the "killing" of undead critters who weren't alive to begin with. Even the more-boyscout-than-supes Cap was willing to take down vampires.
When really, you'd think the characters who legitimately held a no-killing morality would see that killing a vampire was killing a sentient being, "undead" or no. "But all they do is kill, they have no redeeming qualities" you might say. Well then, those same heroes should be ok with removing the Joker and a host of other DC loons from the planet, but oh no, "life itself is sacred", forget what is being done with that life.
>not posting the superior version
And people said that Arkham Knight ruined Jason Todd.
>there are people who still doubt that Batman's in love with the Joker
Guys he did it because if Jason killed the Joker, he'd have to bring Jason in for murder.
If superman became a vampire, would he lose his powers because he could no longer absorb sunlight?
Would his kryptonian solar power and his vampiric sun weakness cancel each other out, or would one supersede the other?
Well, unless it was an extra-multiversal vampire feeding on entire universes. Then it's fine, apparently.
Like someone else said above, in cape comics
>it all depends on the writer
Mark Gruenwald wrote Cap as having gone through the entirety of WW2 without ever killing anyone or ever firing a gun. That's maximum fucking boy scout
>"Represents what is good and decent and true."
>God is the most evil entity in all of recorded history and fiction
Are you a Christian?
Is that superman...punching an angel? What's the context here?
>You can't kill someone if they're insane even if they keep getting out of prison & murdering hundreds of innocent people
The Joker isn't someone who went nuts & murdered 1 person and is rotting in a cell for the rest of his life. At this point he's probably killed thousands of people.
When is it enough?
Why doesn't Batman just
grow a pair?
She did hang Steve in the comic, you idiot.
