5 - & an even poorly conceived evil threat - a cave troll or Doomsday I guess
6 - AND handle the Death of Superman
7 - At least in Iron Man 2's defense we have a solid idea of who Tony Stark is from the first film
1 - Its intentionally suppose to be vague and foreboding, that is the entire point.
2 - How was it tonally different? It was just as dour as the rest of the film.
3 - I agree the "was it in a dream or was it not" was nonsensical, but I think its easily explained away that the Flash wasn't fully able to tear into our dimension so the dimensional ripples bled into Bruce's dream.
4 - They didn't come together over the commonality, the came together because Batman realized how badly he overreacted to some ill informed assumptions he made about Superman and the nature of his connections to humanity.
5 - Why was that poorly conceived? Him being the creation of Lex isn't any worse a origin then him being a runaway alien weapon.
6 - Which was the only rational way to prove to the population of this dark paranoid world that Clark's intent was good once and for all.
7 - I knew exactly who Clark is after Mos. A indecisive realist hero who inherently wants to help people but is held back out of fear of causing more harm then good indirectly, a person who after years of taking abuse has a bit of pent up rage/spite in him but still avoids punching down directly when possible, a person who deeply appreciates trust being put in him which he doesn't expect to get.
If you don't think that is "superman" enough, fine but don't tell me he wasn't a fully 3d character.
