The statements in the Novel were pretty crazy and would put Zod much higher than Kurse. Making Superman bleed and his kicks being strong enough to send an Iron safe into orbit. Based on the movies, I would still put Zod above Kurse. He seemed roughly on par with Superman, and I can't imagine Superman not putting down Thor in as many hits as Kurse landed on Thor.
This is true but doesn't make sense considering Superman was the one who got put on his ass by this collision.
I know it was weird. It looks like Superman flew him into the first building, Zod somehow reversed the positioning in there and threw Superman into the next building, using Superman’s momentum against him or just straight up throwing him.
Not taking anything away from Zod but that feat flew on this site for a while and it was misconstrued.
Well that is not canon becase it contradicts move, but novels are completly canon as long as they do not contradict move and in novel Zod could send iron safe into orbit with a strike , even low earth orbit is 2000 kilometers, which is crazy, and that is canon to DCEU , it is not contradicted by move.
Kurse's fist is not as large as Hulk's fist or Thanos' fist iirc. It's still a regular size punch like Zod's punch. Kurse has better raw strength, but Zod's raw speed bullrush gives him a slight advantage here.
Though Hulk and Thanos definitely hits harder than Zod due to their enhanced reflexes + better super strength and larger size advantage.
Just a statement,didn't the novel say that Zod was making Superman bleed which didn't happen in the movie.
The novel and movie are usually canon unless something in the movie contradicts it. The movie contradicted the Superman feat but never contradicted the lock safe feat.
But the lock safe feat is really not a feat,just a statement.Outlier too.
Why is it an outlier? Considering that Superman would have went way further than he did if he didn't bounce off the skyscraper, he is clearly capable of sending objects extreme distances.
statement from the omniscient author in the book that tells us the story is just as good as any feat, that is not like statement from batman that Superman is strogner than the planet or that DD is invincible, in the book and comic what narrator tells us when he describes the event is the fact
So that statement is feat and proves how strong is Zod, and it is not an outlier, Zod has few comperable feats
What did Zod do in the tie in novel?
He was hurting Clark badly with punches to the point where Clark was bleeding very heavily.
Makes more sense; Two beings of the same species (any species) can hurt and kill one another using but their hands/claws etc. It wasn't normal to see Kryptonians hit on one another for hours whitout even achieving a bruise. To those who say that it is a durability feat, I'll answer that it was done at the expense of their striking power. This and ridiculous knckback gives the impression they have rubber fists.
Maybe they didn't wanted blood at all for PG13's sake.
Zod, Kurse struggled to put down Thor.
Using an off handed statement from a tie in novel that contradicts the movie is incredibly stupid tho.
Well, Zod struggled a lot more to put down Superman. I don't believe Supes would have been able to deflect Mjolnir in flight.
Lots of knockbacks, mach cones and collateral, but basically no damage to their foe, which is in the same precise state it was before the (mostly esthetic) punch. No "before & after" whatsoever. No game-changing strike for the Kryptonians to date.
The Emperor is naked, guys. He is naked and the Kryptonians' hitting power is mediocre. Not bad, just featless and mediocre, to the point where headcannon becomes a necessity.
