The Science of Man of Steel: The Good, The Bad, and The Iffy

The Bad: The Black Hole

Superman gets tired of fighting the Zod gang so he creates a black hole to send those losers back to the Phantom Zone. The only catch is that he opens it right over Metropolis. I'm no Kryptonian, but unleashing a giant, cosmic nightmare into a major urban area seems like kind of a safety hazard. Of course, the black hole didn't end up having a tasty Earth for dinner because it's a movie, and general relativity can be cast aside in favor of General Zod's captivity. However, we do hope that Lois at least took the Man of Steel aside to say, "hey, warn a girl next time you chuck a singularity at her city."
