Yep, I see Quex-Ul strangle Zod to death. That was easy.

Where in the world would you get that Waid was MY sacred cow?

Even IF Superman didn't kill Zod specifically, he killed the other two by unleashing the green K.

My question about Superman's continuity stands as this was only 21 issues into it.

You know, Spektre is right. It wasn't Superman whom killed Zod. It was Kal-El. There was no Superman at that point in the film, hence the name Man Of Steel instead. :P


Ah, a nice game of semantics. The true weakness of Kryptonians.

So yeah, I pretty much won this thread hands down.
- Continuity is or it is not. There is no such thing as soft continuity.
- A character IS his continuity.
- Continuity is consistency of the characteristics of people, plot, objects, and places seen by the reader or viewer.

I usually hate retcons but the one retcon I did defend was overturning the Ned Leeds as the Hobgoblin fiasco in the 80's and revealing the one true Hobgoblin as Roderick Kingsley.
