Neither did I. If Zod had been exposed to earth's suns radiation for much longer he would have been unstoppable, so Superman did what he thought was necessary to stop him, because Zod was mad & would have never listened to reason.
Where was the public outcry when Superman pretty much killed Nuclear Man in Superman 4? Although it wasn't graphic like Superman breaking Zod's neck in MOS, he still killed Nuclear Man by dumping his body into the reactor. Many would say that there was no real comparison between the 2 but would he have felt differently if he had known that Nuclear Man was cloned from his DNA so that would have essentially made Nuclear Man family to him.
