Superman: Unbound

Question: What kind of building was being raided at the start of the movie? (00:01:50)

Chosen answer: Most likely a bank.

GOOD-BOT

Question: If those people at the start wanted to blow up the roof of the building they raided, why did they wait to blow the roof until the police had left? (00:02:00 - 00:02:30)

Chosen answer: Originally, I thought this would have been to keep murder of police off their charges if things went wrong. But then I remembered several cops were shot and killed during the roof top shoot out before the thugs took off in the chopper. What they were most likely doing is waiting till the chopper was a safe distance from the explosives before detonating it, so they would not blow themselves up. Just so happens the cops got away during that time.

Question: Supergirl stops the missile from hitting the sun and switches its direction. After this the missile shoots off and explodes. Can someone explain to me what was it that caused the missile to explode? (01:02:45)

Chosen answer: If you'll notice, in order to change the trajectory of the missile, she blasts into it with her laser vision to make it vent and change its dynamics. This damage most likely is what caused the detonation by a chain reaction. Another possibility is that the missile was on a timer set to the amount of time it would take to reach the center of the sun. A missile designed to destroy a star in such a manner would obviously have an optimum effect from the very center. But the missile has to survive traveling through the star to get to the center, thus it would be made to withstand the plasma and heat to prevent impact or heat detonation. Thus it was likely timed.

Factual error: When Braniac's robot probe enters the atmosphere over Arizona, fighter jets attempt to shoot it down by hitting it with missiles. The pod is still going fast enough to be on fire from reentry. A missile could not have caught up to an object going that fast. (00:11:30)
