Yeah, this Krypton was kinda weird to watch since they're generally depicted as a "shining" example of society in which their pride got the best of them. Though going off the prequel comic, I guess that's how Krypton was thousands of years ago and then their pride was around for just as long.

Them essentially being invaders (if they went to inhabited planets during that space age period thousands of years ago) was weird too.

And Jor-El being able to take on Zod and his men pretty well was weird too when you take into account that he was genetically engineered to be a scientist and Zod a warrior (maybe even Krypton's best).

I was at some diplomatic party once. Got to talking to this princess who told me that when it came to Superman, I was missing the point. She told me, "His real strength lay in his generous spirit and sense of what's fair." - King Faraday

He’s much more of a working class superhero, which is why we ended the whole book with the image of a laboring Superman. He’s Everyman operating on a sci–fi Paul Bunyan scale." - Grant Morrison
