Love the three phantom zone CRIMINALS.

Hate the idea that Krypton was an evil place and have the mass of kryptonians essentially be stand-ins for nazis.

From byrne's dystopia, to eradicator, to new krypton, to snyder, to dark knight master race, to superman/lois tv show. . .we have kryptonians as the supremacists who Superman needs to kill.

Don't like it; never liked it. I get that Superman embraces Earth, but it shouldn't be about Superman joyfully crushes his own people; who are all super-evil, btw.

Somewhere over the decades the Phantom Zone criminals did evolve into becoming outright supremacists true... Originally General Zod was just a control freak. Incredibly ambitious, power hungry, ruthless, murderous, and it may be that the switch to being a Kryptonian supremacist who was quite open to committing genocide based on that very principle came out of John Byrne's 1988 story with the Pocket-universe.

But the shift from political agitator and criminal to becoming a Kryptonian Supremacist is a sharp one. As you say it does suggest that Krypton was a society that did consider itself an elite. But that in turn would imply there must have been a tiered and very well defined social and ethnic hierarchy on Krypton, which is something I don't like or support at all... it misses the point.
