Mars colonists could be genetically modified

I don't think we should send people to Mars until we've established a larger orbital station (to launch from) and/or a moon base with residents first. (Or at LEAST send people back to the moon first to test out all the needed tech...)
Baby steps, people.
Sending people to Mars would just be a needless waste and a super high risk now, or in the near future before we know more about people being in deeper space for a year+ and inhabiting an atmosphere-less space rock.
We also need it to be a global coalition/effort, not just a US vs. them 'competition'.

I doubt that genetically modifying humans can be considered ethical. I think that maybe it can be for curing diseases but not for "enhancing" people so they can go to Mars.

I'm not sure what is unethical about it.

Using genetic modification to produce super-warriors or a master race, yes that's unethical, but using the process to ensure the survival of the human race seems to be about as ethical as you can get.

No. Doom Eternal revolves around the Khan Makyr using human souls as an energy source. Doomguy no likey that they helped hell invade earth with the help of the Deag's (hell priest) of Sentinel Prime.
