Re: Shouldn't Zod have manhandled Supes?
Well, it does raise the question: how much more powerful are the Kryptonians bred for military service than the scientist class? Because Jor-El seemed to be holding his own against Zod in the prologue.
I would think without powers, that Zod would obviously win the fight, having extensive martial training (while Clark, may have none).
I think it really boils down to Zod being out of his element. Plus he was kind of losing it by that point.
