Re: Return of Zod
Heck, just have Faora escape the Phantom Zone/re-emerge, and reveal that she and Zod had gotten married during their voyage through space. Boom, new General Zod.
...granted, I'd really rather they DIDN'T do that, but if we're so bloody desperate to have Zod back, that would at least prevent them from actually resurrecting him and thus undermine having killed him in the first place.
