Technically yes, but I disagree. Everyone dies eventually and there's no cure for death, but entire races tend not to naturally die off.>>90514234>He had an easy option to give the kryptonians a new home, but was too caught up by pride to coexist
You know, I found that scene, and I think it serves as an excellent example of why I loved this version of General Zod: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WcEH-Itx73A>Jor'El: You're talking about genocide.>Zod: Yes, and I'm arguing its merits with a ghost.
Jor'El practically whispers genocide, he says it with such weight. Zod, on the other hand, completely dismisses the idea as if it were nothing, instead staying grounded and reminding himself that he's discussing things with a projection of a dead man.
In my mind, Zod is this ultra-practical dude who mentally struggles to keep his focus on one thing and one thing only: protecting the people of Krypton. It's more practical to genocide humans than to take even the smallest risk in having Kryptonians adjust to the planet. The cost to humans isn't even considered because it's not part of his "programming".
Continuing the scene, you see Zod studiously ignoring Jor'El, commanding the computer to prepare for deletion. Zod talks over Jor'El, doesn't even look at him until:>Jor'El: My son is twice the man you are.
Zod's ears perk up, he looks over his shoulder, like "the fuck you say, nigger?">Jor'El: We will finish what we started. I can promise you that.
Zod turns around, he steps over
Zod glares at Jor'El, he prepares to speak>Zod: (paraphrasing) Imma fuk u up
Without waiting for a response, Zod deletes Jor'El. Whereas at the beginning of the scene Zod seems like some implacable genocide robot, the end of the scene shows he is "human" after all, and that he isn't immune to insults. He is capable of anger and frustration, yet none of that was present when he was discussing genocide. Zod isn't evil, he's just frighteningly effective at his job.
