However, it turns out that Chris's birth name is Lor-Zod, son of the infamous General Dru-Zod II. Zod and his wife Ursa had Chris in the PhantomZone and used him as a interdimensional tether to allow them and the other Phantom Zoners to escape. As his small army of Kryptonians are too much even for the [[Franchise/JusticeLeagueOfAmerica League]] and [[ComicBook/JusticeSocietyOfAmerica Society]] to handle together, Superman is forced to turn to ComicBook/LexLuthor (being the only one to devote a lifetime to killing Kryptonians) to defeat them.

Heavily inspired by ''Film/SupermanTheMovie'' and ''Film/SupermanII'', this story reintroduced General Dru-Zod to the modern continuity, even altering his appearance to look closer to Creator/TerenceStamp, as well as canonizing his accomplices Ursa and Non. This arc would later serve as inspiration to the 2013 movie ''Film/ManOfSteel'', which incorporated Zod's motive of rebuilding Krypton on Earth.

Added DiffLines:

* AbusiveParents: Chris has ''good'' reason to be afraid of General Zod. Zod threatens to [[OffingTheOffspring put him down along with anyone who stands against him]], and fully intends to do it before Superman intervenes. He brushes this off as he "can always make another".


Added DiffLines:

* ItsAllAboutMe: Luthor, as always. His reason for teaming with Superman to fight the Phantom Zoners is equal parts "[[TheOnlyOneAllowedToDefeatYou Nobody conquers this planet but me]]" and "People will worship me for saving the world and being right about aliens".

Added DiffLines:

** This storyline officially rebooted General Zod into heavily resembling his '' Film/SupermanII'' counterpart, both in terms of appearance as well as being a full blown Earth-1 Kryptonian (unlike all of the post-Crisis Zods).

Added DiffLines:

* {{Retcanon}}: The buckle on Superman's belt changes to look like the "S" logo on his uniform, matching its look in ''Film/SupermanReturns''. After this arc, it goes back to the classic look.

Both ''Last Son'' and the later miniseries ''Brainiac'' (also written by Geoff Johns) were eventually collected into one volume called ''Last Son of Krypton'', most likely due to both of them being preludes to the ''ComicBook/NewKrypton'' arc.
