* Complete Monster: General Zod from volume 3. He starts a civil war on his home planet of Krypton and tries to kill Jor-el, even though he's Zod's brother. When defeated, he helps an enemy race destroy Krypton, deciding if he can't rule it no one will. He also makes said aliens promise not one kryptonian will survive. When Zod discovers Kal-el, his own nephew, escaped the planet's destruction, Zod becomes obsessed with killing someone he hasn't even met. When Zod reaches Earth, he tries to kill Superman with kryptonite, watching with sadistic glee. When this fails, he threatens to kill Superman's mother, just to spite him. When Superman is de-powered by red sun energy, Zod slowly tortures him, only sparing Superman's legs so he will have something to kneel with. A power-hungry OmnicidalManiac with a disturbing sadistic streak, Zod-el stood out as the most evil villain in Superman: Earth One.



** For fun, [[SchmuckBait go to an online forum]] and argue about this comic being better or worse than ''Film/ManOfSteel'' or ''The ComicBook/{{New 52}}'' Superman.

When defeated, he helps an enemy race destroy Krypton, deciding if he can't rule it no one will. He also makes said aliens promise not one kryptonian will survive, ensuring the deaths of billions. When Zod discovers Kal-el, his own nephew, escaped the planet's destruction, Zod becomes obsessed with killing someone he hasn't even met. When Zod reaches Earth, he pretends to be Superman's friend, while secretly turning the rest of the world against him. Zod later tries to kill Superman with kryptonite, watching with sadistic glee as his own nephew experiences agonizing pain. When this fails, Zod threatens to kill Superman's mother, just to spite him. When Superman is de-powered by red sun energy, Zod slowly tortures him, only sparing Superman's legs so he will have something to kneel with. A power-hungry OmnicidalManiac with a frightening sadistic streak, General Zod is the worst vilain Earth One Superman has encountered thus far.

* BaseBreaker: Clark Kent.
** Also endemic to the story itself, thanks to the BrokenBase currently being experienced by the fandom. Clark's divisiveness is tied into the fan conflict over how "human" Superman should be, how sincere the Clark Kent identity is, his place as TheAce, and of course, accusations that he has to be dragged into saving the day instead of just being TheCape. Other issues between fans center around the change in the cause for Krypton's destruction (some hate the idea of it having an intergalactic conspiracy behind it as a MythArc), the occasional speechifying by characters, and from the fact that JMS is seen as a ScrappyCreator by several superfans (being the [[WriterRevolt contested-author]] of Franchise/SpiderMan's ComicBook/OneMoreDay, and his abandoned runs on Superman with the Grounded story-arc and Franchise/WonderWoman reboot.)

** Jimmy Olsen. While he has a lot of fans (see EnsembleDarkhorse bellow), there some (mostly Lois Lane fans) who think he's a SpotLightStealingSquad and a CreatorsPet.

* SugarWiki/AwesomeArt: The first two volumes were drawn by Shane Davis, and they look ''beautiful''. Ardian Syaf also proved himself a worthy replacement for volume 3.

* CompleteMonster: General Zod is already a huge bastard, but his ''Earth One'' incarnation takes his villainy UpToEleven. He started a violent coup to take over Krypton, and when the coup failed, he went to planet Dheron and offered them Kryptonian technology to help them in their own war against Krypton. All because if he couldn't conquer Krypton, [[OmnicidalManiac he would destroy it]]. He makes it his sole ambition to destroy every single Kryptonian left. When he arrives on Earth, [[ManipulativeBastard he takes advantage of the world leaders' distrust of Superman]] and [[DealWithTheDevil cuts a deal with them]]: ''every single military and police force on Earth will look the other way while he kills Superman''. What makes his actions even worse? ''Superman is Zod's own nephew!''
