    Yep, you read it right, the original Superman didn't mind killing or threat a criminal with death.  He was a very cold psychopath, as well as Batman he didn't mind killing either. 
    As you can see from the scans below didn't even mind letting the bad guy die sometimes.

    Yeah, I have heard about this. They changed his personality later into the Superman we know now.

    It was before that, an editorial edict was passed for Superman to make an oath to no longer kill(which he did on panel) and that was that it was before the CCA existed.

    GA Superman was the man for the people. Up until the 1950's where he started to become the "boy scout" lawful authority and using Standing for truth, justice, and the "American" way for propaganda purposes during the cold war.

    Batman killed in the Pre-robin issues too, I always thought the Original versions of both were the best ones.

    @Primmaster64:  
    They MAY lose everything relating to the Origins of the Clark Kent we know effective 2013, so they are testing the waters at DC to deal with this in story, If a miracle occurs I would expect to see "classic" Superman return at DC, If not... 
    DC will just create a new "Version", and the version they Lost to the heirs may show up elsewhere.

    @Primmaster64:  Not really.  The thing is, Billy and his family weren't violent like Golden Age Superman or Golden Age Batman, and you know what?  He out sold them beyond belief.  In fact, I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that Billy and his families' success is the sole reason the Silver Age came about.   Ye, it's a stretch, but I'm making that claim now.
