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?

Geoff Johns and Matt Idelson have both said that Superman not encountered Zod before, post "Infinite Crisis". That means the Pocket Universe, "Return To Krypton", Polkestan (sp) and "For Tomorrow" Zod do not exist now. They said that because so many different versions exist and all have too many issues surrounding them, they opted to start from scratch, keeping it simple. Zod was in the Phantom Zone for all these years and only gets out in "Last Son".

But, that doesn't mean the entire story has been booted. As I said elsewhere, perhaps it was General Sod he encountered there. Remember how some pre-Crisis Legion stories with Supergirl and Superboy were kept in continuity with Mon-El, etc. taking their place? Same thing.
