The idea here is about power, doing the right thing, believing that the human race is worth respecting, saving/protecting, etc. Ideas that Zod, the real villain does not share.

As others have said...fantastic concept, underwhelming execution.
This is what I'm talking about. Faith in the internet slightly restored.
