But this Young Zod... . When I watch him I don't think evil dictator in the making, I think child throwing a tantrum.
Hmm, you overestimate the underlying behavior and motivations of dictators. I'd have more problem with him having been made a general by an advanced and enlightened society in the first place. That's a common depiction but it's really, really inaccurate, even more so when you consider that Krypton was supposed to be notably more advanced in the social arena.
I'll give it some leeway, though, in terms of him gone off his nut from losing his child. But I've got no problems with him having tyrannical ambitions directed by a great deal of natural talent.
I'm disappointed whatserninja (the one who came back in time with Lois) turned out to be a badguy. I'd figured she was going to be covertly against Zod's plans.
