The question is: When Zod/Faora/Non first get to Earth, they already have super strength and speed. I assumed right away that they got these powers from their battle armor suits. But others here seem to think that they just got the full Superman-level powers immediately upon arriving on Earth. That doesnt make sense to me.
So, what do people think, did they have those powers because they were the normal Kryptonian powers that just went to full-on when they got to Earth, or were they the result of the powered-armor suits?
Why I think they were from the suits:
1. They were not surprised at all to have them when they arrived.
2. Faora and Zod didnt have X-Ray Vision or Heat Vision, at all, until the suit helmet was broken. This tells me that the suits did the same thing as the spaceship, it cancelled out the effects of the Sun/Earth on Kryptonians. If the suit was cancelling out the XRay/Heat vision, why not the other powers?
3. Kryptonians normally take some time for their powers to show up when in the yellow Sun.
4. Zod was the only one to show powers without the suit, and it was at the end of the movie after his helmet had been off for a while.
