Nope, and anyone genuinely willing to do it shouldn’t have that level of power. Clark is so awesome because he knows restraint and he knows right from wrong, killing someone purely for personal power shows that you don’t understand that.

Seriously though, I'm generally not the type to "kill one to save five", but the benefits a Superman would bring are just insane, you could fix a lot of the world's problems and surely make it so that humanity as a whole survives for a lot longer.

Excluding possible loopholes, I'd do it.

Or I'd puss out at the last second, probably.

Another way to look at it, is,

Would you be willing to kill one random innocent person to gain the ability to save millions?

(Assuming you use your abilities to save millions)

You could stop a holocaust, end wars, prevent mass shootings, blow back a hurricane and a lot more without even breaking a sweat, and all it would cost is one innocent life....and maybe your soul....

It's either save 1 guy and let millions die

Or kill 1 guy and save millions.

For jews this should be easy, the talmud tell us the goyim are not humans, they're beasts, animals.

So he could just kill a goy and become powerful.

@mylittlefascist: What I’m saying is he wouldn’t happlily give up his life, even if he knew someone was trying to kill him for Superman’s powers. Also, if your willing to kill someone for them, I doubt there’s much good you can do for the world anyway.

@deathstroke512: With Superman around, overpopulation is a non-issue. You can actually use those powers to help to keep all those people alive, someone should have told Thanos about that.

I do it and then go Injustice on everyone and bring about total peace, I'd begin cracking holes in the universe and go grab a couple alternate versions of Heroes and Villains for my Regieme.

No, anyone saying yes is lying or pretending to be cool. Admit it, you don't have half the balls to do it.

Maybe not, you can't really know until you get into such situation, but I do think it would be a morally right thing to do it.

Imagine, you could pay for the medical costs of every person on the planet. You could deliver food, water and medicines to every person on the planet. You could stop the wars. Scientific projects would have endless founding, which would result in endless new medicines, and technologies.

You could explore the universe, set up colonies in space, find aliens, prevent crime, stop asteroids, freeze tsunamis, end the energy crisis, end the ecological crisis and countless other things.

If you are not willing to die or take a life for something that would save lives of countless billions of people, and vastly improve the lives of even more billions of people, then you are not a particularly good person.

I would find an innocent person who wanted to commit suicide. Kill them then save thousands to make myself feel better about it.

But real talk someone is dying for those powers.

@mortein: Over half the stuff you said to me would not stop or begin. The world will even hate you at times.

You look at the benefits, I look at the whole thing.

What is this innocent human being anyway?

Cancer Survivor? Veteran? Relative? Good Parent? Leader?

Nothing good comes out of murdering a person, there has never bee one time where that happened.

@mortein: Sure thing.You can't pay for medical costs of every person on planet.You can not deliver food water and medicine to every one on planet.Why they are not possible is because we don't have infinite amount of food or medicine supplies.Of course you can pay for every medicine ,I mean superman can just make dollar making machine and give to everyone,but it won't have any value left due to inflation.Giving everyone gold will decrease value of gold instead of making everyone rich.

You can stop the wars and if it comes to ww3 than it becomes your duty but remember that countries don't like letting aliens interfere in their personal matter.If you support one country other country will cry unfair.The recent run on jl by priest was all about what happens when jl tries to mess with political affairs/boundaries.Once you start supporting one kind of people the end of integrity of superman begins.Their opposites will surely rebel and than your best bet will be to rule by fear or let the people you support rule by fear or let the enemies make bigger weapons that will cause more destruction.Either way you would end up as a tyrant and than you will have to make decision similar like the one you just made about killing one innocent i.e. killing millions is more necessary to save billions.

I seriously don't like this endless funding,medicine and technology you are talking about as I said before endless money != endless resources.Also nothing gurantees that scientific research on medicine and technology by superman will be succesful.If superman can do it than kudos to you if not than well back to square one.Also let's say that superman does find a way to make medicine for every illness and eliminate all possibilities of death than we would have to call Thanos for 50% overpopulation sweeping??.

Second paragraphs are full of things I agree with you on i.e we can explore universe that we can't right now,probably find aliens,prevent crimes in the area that you are currently present which if it's a dispute would go back to the whole tyrant charade which you better stay away from as said previously.Stop asteroids and freeze tsunami though I don't understand it's usefulness. Ending energy and ecological crisis sounds possible but than again the prizes will drop like crazy but still very necessary and great idea.

Setting up colonies and finding human accommodating empty planet might be the best thing possible of all as it would solve almost all problems in paragraph 1 as well as w but probably too many iffs.

I might be willing to die but taking up life of an innocent with the possibility that I might be destroying millions innocents/guilty in future is certainly not a bet I am taking whether I am good person or not.With powers if I am in position to rule them or destroy them than I would just fly in sun like Dr Manhattan and never come back.

Nothing good comes out of murdering a person, there has never bee one time where that happened.

Let's go step by step.

First of all, I would become a multi trillionaire within few days.

Easiest and the fastest way to do so seems to be to go to space, and bring on earth asteroids rich in rare metals and minerals which would be worth trillions of dollars.

Then I could use this money to pay for food, medicines and water, being delivered to those in need. And with my speed and strength, I would be doing some deliveries on my own.

We could develop power-plants which would use my strength and/or heat vision as a power source, thus the world would get endless free and clean energy available, or I could sell that energy cheaply, and still earn trillions of dollars. Half an hour of work per a day would be enough to satisfy all the energy needs of the humanity.

Any invading army would be stopped immediately, and while civil wars would be more tricky, I could still help a lot, and make sure no is committing war crimes on massive scales. If there are 2 groups of people making claim over the same territory, I could create and island in the middle of the ocean, put on it valuable items worth trillions of dollars, build all the infrastructure on it, and let one of the two groups move over there, whichever group decides they are giving up on their homeland first. Or something like that, this is of course vastly oversimplified example.

With endless supply of economic resources I could fund all the scientific projects, with super strength and speed I could throw all the garbage into the sun

I'm really not sure which of those things would be impossible to do?

No. Suppose if you said yes and do the deed then what? Sure you could save trillion of transportation and exploration cost but that won't be enough right, people are still dying from mass shooting, terrorist and you have the power of a god in hand. So you do that too, saving people stopping bad people. But you are not omnipresent. During one outing, you didn't make it in time, you can't slow down to stop the terrorist so you fly with all your might and blitz him, turning the terrorist to mush in an instant, after all you already killed one innocent man for the sake of the whole world, killing the terrorist is like cleaning the trash. The people hail you as a hero and you started using lethal force now and then. Until one day thing goes too far, the very same people who call you a hero now see you as a monster, so you started doing like Injustice Superman.
