Superman used unconscious super-hypnosis magnified through his spaceship window glasses to convince everyone Clark didn’t look like Superman.

I just started reading the first issues of batman and was a little
suprised. In the first issue alone he machine-guns a bunch of
gangsters to death, throws a mad scientist out a window and assumes he
dies (although it was into water and we all know what that means…)
and then lets 2 men who were mutated by the professor to beat each
other to death cause they were better off that way…
I know it was a different time and all, but when did his no killing
rule really go into effect for both good AND bad guys, 50’s? 60s?
