> > 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.
Maybe Mon-El has an evil father named Cru-El who was trapped in the Pocket Universe by the Time Trapper.
Maybe the Pocket Universe and all its trappings still occurred on the new Earth-1 timeline and Matrix is living there. I mean there are 3 Legions, the Zero Hour Legion has to exist in some other parallel Earth besides New Earth. ZH Legion being the last to interact with Pocket Earth, right?
