You’re not just anyone. One day, you’re gonna have to make a choice. You have to decide what kind of man you want to grow up to be. Whoever that man is, good character or bad... he's gonna change the world.

Lois: What's the 'S' stand for?
Kal-El: It's not an 'S'. On my world, it means 'hope'.
Well, here, it's... an S. How about Sup - (static)
You're a monster, Zod. And I'm gonna stop you.
You are not alone... My name is General Zod. I have journeyed across an ocean of stars to reach here. Your world has sheltered one of my citizens. He will look like you, but he is not one of you. To those of you who know of his location: the fate of your planet rests in your hands. To Kal-El, I say this: surrender within 24 hours, or watch this world suffer the consequences..
- General Zod
Can you imagine
how people on this planet would react
if they knew there was someone... like this out there?
