I am reading injustice for the second time and this question occurred to me. do you consider killing a parademon’s of the new 52 taking a life or destroying a machine?
parademons are cybernetic organisms with little or no will of there own. they do read as lifeforms by a green lantern ring, but they also are basicly more like a non-infiltrator terminator then Cyborg, basicly they are mindless soulless machines.
for me i always felt the JL and Earth’s heroes just ‘destroyed’ them when invasions happened and that they were not in fact alive in a way that counted as life.
