If you prefer to play a supervillain, rather than a superhero for Halloween, then this primary villain is a superb choice.
A fellow Kryptonian and possessing all the same powers as Superman, he is one of Superman’s deadliest arch-enemies.
Why Dress As General Zod?
Quite simply, General Zod is a badass supervillain who possesses unlimited depths for power, destruction, and evil.
What’s dressing as a vampire, compared to a character that goes from killing Superman’s father, to maniacally declaring and even screaming “I WILL FIND HIM” at Superman’s mother.
Telling her that he intends to do the same to him – then a defenseless baby, while also becoming hell bent on destroying the human race, and terraforming Earth into his vision of a new Krypton?
