Read full description of the books Le dernier fils:What makes a good villain?
Well for me they have to be complex. The best ones are those that are, essentially, right in their convictions. But because of their extremist ways they are branded with the taint of villainy. I think General Zod is a great bad guy because he almost isn’t bad; he fights for his people, but he does it a little too well. Heroics turn into brutal minded fanaticism. The movie version of Zod in Man of Steel (2013) was my idea of a perfect antagonist. Unfortunately, the Zod in here was rather weak.
He’s just a bit of a weak minded bully. Sure, he’s essentially the same character, but he has none of the intensity or morale righteousness. Lex Luther filled the gap tremendously. Superman is forced to team up with him to bring down the destructive Zod. Luther always has a hidden agenda though, and because of this the story was saved. I was just waiting for him to plunge a knife into superman’s back. Without him this would have been as weak as Zod’s characterisation. So, for once, Luther actually saved the day in more ways than one.
It was also quite cool to see glimpses of the Justice league. They were getting floored in the background by Zod’s Kryptonian army. They wouldn’t stand a change against Superman’s kind. Only Luther, who had spent years devising ways to bring Superman down, new how to handle things. So it was quite a quirky team up, Superman with all his old enemies. It was rather intense because these guys have so much history, you could see the repressed hatred screaming to be released.
The ending was everything it needed to be; it provided enough closure whilst at the same time leaving the possibility of Zod’s return open. This is less dramatic that Zod’s death in the movie, but it allows more reprisals of him in the future. Comic books would never be so final because it would come at the expense of more material. Overall this was rather average. A shame really.
