Could I ask where we learn the PU Zod and company never existed?

If that was flatly said in a story, it does sort of prove Matrix at least has to have had an origin change.

Wouldn't it be a kick if the three Pocket Universe Kryptonians got retconned into being versions of Non, Ursa, and Zod?

Would sort of fill in a few gaps (like the two realities having such different versions of Zod). Simple. In a retcon, the PU Zod WAS pretty similar to the mainstream one, and so were his "friends".

I suppose I make assumptions. When the current Zod and company showed up, Superman acted like he'd never encountered anyone named Zod before. And as I said in an earlier thread, the presence of Equus in Countdown and related titles pretty much negates the ending of "For Tomorrow" so at least one previous Zod story has been modified or thrown out altogether. Plus, didn't Johns (or Didio) tell us that the Superman corner of the universe had been rebooted since Infinite Crisis?

It's the same as when the current Supergirl debuted, Superman made no mention of ever having met a Supergirl or Kara Zor-El before. I suppose that's not the same as him actually saying "Hey! I never had a cousin named Kara before!" but it would be an odd omission if he still remembered Matrix, Linda and Cir-El but failed to mention them when the new Supergirl showed up.

Retcon the current batch into having met Superman before in the Pocket Universe but not having been executed by him? Or having come from the PU but not having met Superman until the current story? Either way it'd be a big enough retcon of the old story that it would throw the existence of Matrix into question.
