Uncle Zod by memorypalace Uncle Zod by memorypalace
Come to me, Superman, if you dare. I defy you. Come! Come and kneel before Zod!! ZOD!!!!

I just watched the Richard Donner cut of Superman 2, and Terence Stamp steals the show with his vain egomaniac General Zod. Pretty much every line is delivered with so much ham it's unbelievable :D The above quote is him calling out Superman [link] If you're going to do that, make sure you scream your own name at the end of it :XD:

Also, directly after that scene, when the President has announced that the world has been conquered by super-powered aliens, everyone just goes back to eating.

I think this came out pretty well, in fact I think it looks a little like Zod : The Animated series :D and if you made the paper stock, let me know and I'll credit you :)

KNEEL before Zod!

Zod is so great, it's hard to see to new version topping Stamp's campness and self belief XD

Thank you :D
This is all photoshop. I drew Zod on paper, then scanned and coloured him in layers. The b/g is just a white/grey gradient with borders. Pasted Zod on top, added the letters and an "old paper" texture (probably from =night-fate-stock) Change that layer to overlay/multiply :) Basically just experiment with it :D

There used to be one, or at least a Zod for President back in 2004.
