    anyone else pick up this special yesterday? i dug it...Johns work going into this has been really awesome, he's actually made me care about a character who i mostly just cant stand...i love the attitudes of the people from krypton, like the dude with the whale...it was hilarious in a really sad way...

    only thing that kinda didnt make sense is that superman hasnt been to krypton since it grew large, yet Zor-El and Alura In-Ze knew that Zod was a badguy...that kinda confused me...it wasnt explained anywhere as to how they figured that out...but other then that i loved it...

    and the page with ma kent sitting alone was just EPIC and beautiful and so sad...i loved it...cant wait to see where this story goes...

    Zod was arrested and sent to the phantom zone for trying to start a insurrection when he was on Krypton. This happened as a result of kandor being kidnapped by brainiac and Zod finding out about Jor-el's discovery of Krypton's impending doom (apparently caused by Braniac) and about what the council did to NON. (They Labotomized him)(he used to be a scientist and Jor-El's best friend) Zor-El wasn't abducted with kandor, he held a piece of Krypton together after it was destroyed using braniac's technology. Brainiac found out and came back. He then shrunk the piece of krypton and added it to kandor killing any one he deemed useless data. So Zor-el was there when Zod was sent to the phantom zone and then added to kandor later.

    I wonder if they will address the fact that Zor-EL apparently had programmed Kara to kill Kal-El.

    Not the first time either. It's being done in line with the recent movie which is a first.

    yeah, but remember, doomsday vs superman was a huge fight...and superman knows how to fight...there may be a bunch of kryptonians that dont...but we'll have to see...and gotta wonder who's pulling the strings of doomsday...or if that was just the first one to land...i mean, if i'm right, i think luthor and the general dude might have cloned DD, which means they might have more then one...and that could be crazy...

    PA kent was dead pre-crisis and was one of the reasons the original version became Superman. This decision had nothing to do with the current movie or they would have done it when the movie came out like when the added Lar-Zod(Chris Kent)

    so, part 4 came out today...it was pretty awesome...

    i really enjoyed the super fight with doomsday and all the supermen...they really beat the crap outta him...and this stuff with general lane...its okay...before this arc, i've never even heard of him, so this all seems a little to Hulk vs general Ross to me...but still, its kinda different, and fun so far...and last but not least...NIGHTWING AND FLAMEBIRD kicking some Zod loving ass!!! SWEET!!!

    ps, how do you do that all black highlighted text to hide spoilers?
