Seriously - You're attempting to pose as someone who is completely impartial, yet you bash this movie at every turn?
I would be surprised if you've actually even seen the movie and are not just writing what you've heard from others.
Firstly, the "S" on his chest is the Crest of El; it always meant "Hope".
Secondly, Zod and his army only traveled for 33 years, not thousands of years.
They took the kind of destruction that actually happens in the comic books and put it on screen. Was it hard for most of the audience to swallow? Of course, the idea is horrific! But is it inaccurate?
This movie had several issues a lot of comic book fans would lose their heads over - but the fact that you're not looking at any of the real issues with the movie tells me you don't know anything about Superman.
Which then begs the question - why are you the one writing this article?
At the very least there could have been a smidgen of research involved.
