** So where did Clark keep the key before giving it to Lois? Also, what's wrong with pockets? Feora kept her dagger in a seath, not just warped it in or materialised or something. There's no reason to believe they didn't use pockets or pouches or like.

*** Except they had the prison ship which a handful of soldiers managed to repurpose into a full-fledged starship. That doesn't say stagnant technology and a defunct space program to me,

** Strange they never mention this even once.

** Clark knows where her powers come from; the Jor-El A.I. told him. The composition of Earth's atmosphere & the absorbtion of yellow sunlight from Earth's sun. But really, there is no realistic, established way to imprision Zod and/or remove his powers left at the end of the movie. Zod is a superpowered alien now capable of everything that Superman can do, there is no believable way of keeping such a being unconcious in what could take months or years, at least a few weeks to give the government "some time to think of something" (it would be laughable if the superpowered Kryptonians could be taken out with common anesthetic gases or drugs). Introducing Lex Luthor at the tail end of the movie wouldn't have been a smart move (unless it was an aftercredits scene) since it would have taken away the movie's "Zod vs the House of El" theme and would leave the audiences grumbling that they wasted Luthor on a few minutes; that's why the shoutouts to Luthor in the movie were all low-key. The only way the movie established that a Kryptonian's powers can be lost is if they are in the natural or simulated settings of Krypton's atmosphere, which can no longer be done with the destruction of '''all of the Kryptonian ships'''. Between stopping Zod from causing any more casualties and surely knowing full well that nothing now can stop '''him''' let alone Zod, Clark had to make his actions... [[AvatarTheLastAirbender decisive]]. After all, he can't very well remove Zod's powers with a heretofore unmentioned spiritbending in the last moments, leaving him a broken shell of the man he once was, right?

** He is weak because he cares for PunyEarthlings and is unwilling to make sacrifices to win. They are willing to sacrifice anything to achieve their goal. And not caring about others and caring if your species is going extinct are two very different things.

** He is weak because he cares for PunyEarthlings and is unwilling to make sacrifices to win. She is right. Supes was holding back for the sake of civilians since he could reduce the town to a smoking crater and vaporise the Krytonians in a heartbeat. They are willing to sacrifice anything to achieve their goal. And not caring about others and caring if your species is going extinct are two very different things.

[[folder: Faora Makes No Sense?]]
* In her little villainous rant, she said Superman was weak because he had morality, and her side was better because they didn't. Except ... They very obviously '' '''do''' '' have a strong sense of morality, since they're not only loyal to each other, they're risking and sacrificing their own lives to save their people. Theirs is not an equalitarian or liberal morality, obviously, but it's equally clear they aren't just selfish psychopaths. Someone ''truly'' without morality wouldn't give a damn about rebuilding Krypton or resurrecting its people, he'd be way too happy just playing demigod among the PunyEarthlings with his superpowers. ([[UnfortunateImplications Oh, wait...]]) So, what's Faora's problem? Perhaps she doesn't speak English very well, so she mixes up the words and says something other than what she really intended?

** The fact that she is actually genetically engineered and Clark isn't undermines her whole speech; on the other hard, she is a xenophobic militant solider giving a HannibalLecture, so Biology doesn't have to be her strong point.

** If you look to the right of the family, there's a chewed-up section of floor there that was already damaged in the fight. There may be a gap in the floor that's cutting them off from fleeing away from the beams, unless they want to drop a couple of stories down onto the train tracks.
