** Many of them are "exploring distant worlds or other times". Most notably Superboy and Supergirl joined the Legion of the Superheroes.

** At that point, everyone was probably just so relieved to not be a red smear on the wall that they decided to let the matter drop. Superman was successfully talked down, no one at the UN appears to have been seriously hurt, he could clearly argue "extreme emotional disturbance", it would be less "not allowing Superman to leave" and more "hoping Superman was in a mood to allow them to detain him" (seriously, we're asking why no one tried to detain ''the man who can punch through walls'') and and it was at least partially the UN Council's fault that they found themselves in that position to begin with (they did kind of drop ''a doomsday bomb'' on him and his friends). In between risking exacerbating tensions once again and just letting bygones be bygones, it's hardly surprising that everyone went with the latter after what they'd all been through.

*** The average new generation hero is ''now likely to be dead''. And those few that aren't have just survived an apocalyptic battle, being at ground zero of a doomsday bomb, and watching ''Superman'', the Capiest of [[TheCape Capes]], briefly go nuts and have to be talked down from going on the most Roaring of [[RoaringRampageOfRevenge Roaring Rampages of Revenge]]. Seriously, that's more than enough for even the most hardened and bloodthirsty of warriors to throw up his or her hands and go "You know what? Fuck war. Let's give peace a chance here."

** You're really getting into RonTheDeathEater mode here a bit, aren't you? In context, Magog clearly gives Swastika a clip across the back of the head because he's being pretty disrespectful during what is obviously a rather important occasion of some great significance to their hosts. While Magog is definitely being a bit blunt, it's a long way from that to concentration camps. I mean, if you were in a church dicking around in a similar fashion during someone's wedding ceremony, they'd probably react more or less similarly (maybe not with mild violence, but this is still Magog we're discussing here). But that doesn't mean you live in a police state and are being oppressed, it just means you're being an ill-mannered asshole and should knock it off. Presumably metahumans who don't want to spend their lives studying on Themyscria are perfectly free not to do so, but it's also presumably expected that if they do happen to do so, they show a little basic respect for their hosts and surroundings while they're there. As for "Big Brother Superman", as has been repeatedly pointed out ''the whole point'' of the ending is that Clark Kent ''isn't'' going to be setting himself above ordinary mortals any more, he's going to be living full-time as one of them; he's just going to openly use his abilities to help out from now on.

** Let's not forget the entire reason The Spectre was involved. It was '''the Apocalypse'''.

** Also, Two-Face was with him. It was probably ''his'' idea and Bane said, "Okey-doke."

\n\n** The UN had projections that the superhuman war would spread from the Gulag in a few hours and completely consume the Earth. This, and the fact that superheroes were ''already'' destroying whole areas ''and'' the fact that '''an entire state got consumed by ''five'' superheroes''' which caused ''widespread famine'' (yes, America's breadbasket is ''that'' important)... the fact that ''all'' of them were localized in a single area. It was basically a ''Literature/FailSafe'' situation.
--->'''UN Secretary General:''' We saw you as gods.\\
'''Superman:''' As we saw ourselves. We were both wrong.

** Another point: according to the comic and the {{Novelization}}, the bomb was ''specifically'' made to be immune to Superman's powers - you might notice heat vision bouncing off the bomb. In order for Superman to stop it, he'd have had to have been in ''physical contact'' with the bomb - which ''would'' have killed him. Shazam was able to destroy the bomb before its timed explosion using ''magic''.

** Confirmed in the novelization. Von Bach was pretending to be German because he thinks its cool. Adam Blake calls him out on it pointing out that only Movie Germans would say "Schweinhund" the way Von Bach does (that usage of the word has been out of favor in Germany for about a century now.)
