Zod in Superman/Wonder Woman and Earth One Vol 3

#1 Edited by SandMan_ (4528 posts) - - Show Bio

I found you, Son Of Jor-El

This fall, kneel before Zod!

In his Villains Month one-shot, Zod’s origin will be revealed. Not only will you see the infamous Superman villain in his New 52 debut, but you’ll also see him at an early age on an abandoned island and fighting monsters following his parents’ death. It’s Jor-El who acts as Zod’s ticket off the island, and the brotherly alliance they form is something that will be explored. It’s also something that might be the catalyst of some of the friction between Jor-El and Zor-El …

Then, in this fall’s SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN, fans can look forward to Zod taking on the role of the series’ first major villain. As for Doomsday? There’s a connection there too, but I won’t say anything more about that just yet.

And just because it’s San Diego Comic Con weekend, here’s another treat for you. Zod will be popping up in the pages of the upcoming original graphic novel, SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE, VOLUME 3. But why he’ll be coming after Kal from Krypton remains a mystery … for now.

In the gallery above, check out the designs for General Zod by Kenneth Rocafort for his appearances in the New 52, as well as Ardian Syaf’s designs for SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE, VOLUME 3.

@sandman_: I like how Orion is really good friends with WW now.

Oh bugger it, the good Superman villain is reserved for the couple few want to see series. Didn't Pak say he had plans for Zod, not Soule? And I haven't been impressed with the Earth One graphic novels yet. Hopefully Morrison's Wonder Woman one will change my mind.

So Zod has a Z symbol?

You know, if it has meaning as a sort of reversed S symbol, I guess that could make sense. But hmm.

Speak for yourself buddy :P

Zod looks dumb in Earth One but his New 52 design isn't bad, even though the one from Last Son will always be my favorite.

@sandman_: They're adapting Faora to the comics? (Or rather bringing her back)

Hey I like Zod man. Soule is a good writer to be fair. I just didn't want Zod to be in the series of a couple I dislike. I stand by my Earth One comments though :P

@lvenger: Bleh! I like Zod too, but I like SM/WW too. It does need more development though.

Party Pooper :P

Faora is also gonna be there. See the pic I posted above with the gatefold.

@sandman_: Well I am glad Zod is back in the New 52. At least that's something.

#18 Posted by SmashBrawler (5415 posts) - - Show Bio

@sandman_: Yep, that's why I asked. Lazy redesign too and her symbol makes no sense considering the DCnU isn't using MoS' kryptonian alphabet but whatever.

I like it, plain and simple. Zod looks awesome in New 52 and even more awesome in Earth 1 (Anyone notice how he looks so young in Earth 1?)

@lilben42: Funny, since pre-52 Orion connection to Earth was on Superman's side.

I hope they stick to this iteration of Zod,looks cool and the story sounds good too. I'll give SM/WW a shot,not opposed to the couple on principle but they need to do something interesting with them.

Earth One Zod yeah he looks dumb,it's like they wanted to make him cooler and edgier,reminds me more of H'el.

Interesting to see that Darkseid is in Superman's corner while Orion is in Diana's.

I thought you hated the idea of Darkseid as a Superman villain....

@entropy_aegis: I wonder if they thought that out or if its just a coincidence.

#27 Posted by entropy_aegis (14114 posts) - - Show Bio

@sandman_: I do but they could possibly do a story that forces Superman to team up with Darkseid and WW to team up with Orion.

I believe it's intentional.

@entropy_aegis: That would be an awesome story! At least if its done right.

Sadly done right and Darkseid rarely go hand in hand.

Hm isn't using Zod in Earth 1 just going to be a rehash of Vol 1?

#33 Posted by TDK_1997 (14411 posts) - - Show Bio

I am glad that we are about to see Zod but I wanted to see him in Action COmics,under the hands of Pak and not in Superman/Wonder Woman.And also I really dig his Earth One design.

So...Darkseid can betray Superman? :P
