superhuman battles

If one or a few superhumans attacks a nation or planet, and another superhuman/few superhumans defends against the aggressors, which leads to an epic battle, then is that a police/security action, or a war? Films with superhumans, especially superhero films, often bring up whether it is appropriate when a superhero kills or doesn't kill a supervillain. My answer to that debate is that in a police/security action, the hero musn't kill, but in war, he/she may, because this is how the situations occur in reality. My question here is what consitututes a war and what doesn't. I suppose that the official station of either side, as well as how many allies/agents/henchpersons fight alongside either side, matters to the issue.

I didn't know whether to put this in 'Chat' or 'Debate,' but although it's a debate it didn't seem that it was serious enough for 'Debate.'

Re: superhuman battles

I agree this isn't serious enough for the debate section.

To answer your first question I think it would be considered a war. I assume these bad guys would be trying to destroy/rule the world, that puts them above the petty crime category. The super heroes should kill the bad guys if they aren't able to reliably lock them up. Someone who is able to cause catastrophic damage to the earth and/or it's population is too big of a risk. I always hate that about super hero stories, just put them down and spare us their next big attack.
