GENERAL ZOD's Ready For His Close-up

Superman/Wonder Woman #1

DC Comics' website has a regular feature called 'What's New in the New 52'. Here's a look at what we're calling 'Comic-Con: In Case You Missed It'.

With all the news, info, and images circulating during the San Diego Comic-Con weekend, it's easy to miss some stuff you might otherwise have wanted to see. So just in case, here's a look at DC's latest 'What's New', featuring the Man of Steel's arch movie foe, General Zod.

"In his Villains Month one-shot, Zod’s origin will be revealed," writes DC E-i-C Bob Harras. "Not only will you see the infamous Superman villain in his New 52 debut, but you’ll also see him at an early age on an abandoned island and fighting monsters following his parents’ death. It’s Jor-El who acts as Zod’s ticket off the island, and the brotherly alliance they form is something that will be explored. It’s also something that might be the catalyst of some of the friction between Jor-El and Zor-El …

"Then, in this fall’s Superman/Wonder Woman, fans can look forward to Zod taking on the role of the series’ first major villain. As for Doomsday? There’s a connection there too, but I won’t say anything more about that just yet.

"And just because it’s San Diego Comic Con weekend, here’s another treat for you. Zod will be popping up in the pages of the upcoming original graphic novel, Superman: Earth One, Volume 3. But why he’ll be coming after Kal from Krypton remains a mystery … for now.

So check out artist Kenneth Rocafort's designs for General Zod along with artist Ardian Syaf’s designs for Superman: Earth One, Volume 3, and we'll throw in the cover to Superman/Wonder Woman #1 in case you missed that too.
