    Michael Shannon's Zod. He was one of the best supervillians we've had on screen in ages.

    I love Terrence Stamp's Zod too, though. Callum Blue was also pretty good!

    Zod has turned out to be that rare character who is genuinely hard to really mess up.

    There have been 5 Live Action Dru Zods (from 1978 through 2018), and not one has been a stinker. All of them brought something new to the table.

    But for my money, no one tied all his most worthy attributes together in one package like KRYPTON's Colin Salmon: the intelligence, the charisma, the ferocity, the imposing stature.

    All he could use a bit more of is the drollness in his tone, but, given his particular situation on the show, that aspect probably doesn't fit as well.

    He wins.



    Kneel before THIS Zod!

    Shannon’s Zod is the best imo. He’s got real depth and pathos. Stamp’s Zod is entertaining but he’s a relatively flat character, he’s evil to be evil. And Shannon acted the hell out of all his scenes. I like Krypton Zod so far, very excited to see where the show goes with him in the future.

    Not surprisingly to anyone here, I have to go with Terrance Stamp. He's basically the reason anyone looks at Zod in anything besides the comics.

    Shannon is an amazing actor, great in just about everything he does (and he did a lot with what he was given). But when I think of Zod, it'll always be Stamp and that classic voice.

    Kinda like when they re-did the dialogue and voice acting in the re-release of "Castlevania: Symphony of the Night," what's technically better isn't always better - as odd as that is to say. Dracula in the original SOTN, just like Stamp's Zod, is so unabashedly cheese that it just soars.

    Yeah this one wins for me.
    He has the military dictator angle down like no other. He was very believable in pulling off the character's motivations and depicting the extreme lengths he was prepared to go to. I really didn't expect to like him as Zod at all but I've been completely won over. Stamp gets a close #2 for me. Shannon was a great actor and brought a lot to his take on the character but was really lacking in the air of elite aristocracy and superiority that I always imagine Zod having. He was great at depicting the General aspect of the character, not so much the dictator side.

    I concur. Stamp made that character pretty much.

    Colin Salmon (Krypton) is my favorite live action version of the general. He's a total heartless badass.

    Not so much the dictator? But he was ready to kill all life on Earth in favor of his own race. He was also causing trouble on Krypton before it got destroyed. Seems like he thought he was the only one who could rule his people. That's a dictator.
