Depends, Superman is my favorite Superhero, but when he killed Zod i was fine with it, made complete sense, but people got butthurt about it and i'm like WHO CARES!?? He had no other option. imo a hero who kills is more realistic but just how its done is what matters.

If there is a clear cut another way to save all the people but yet he chooses to kill less people to save more people just because he was lazy or didn't even think it through resulting in death of both less and more people then hell yeah.If there's no other way then I would understand.

But killing a villain because there might be chance that he might kill more people in future does not come under this category.

The incursions storyline in Hickman's Avengers basically answers the question.

I’d be more angry with the writer than the character.

If there was really no other way, if it absolutely had to be done, then I suppose I would be ok with it.

Storytelling

Impossible (for me) to answer without it.
