Hal Jordan and The Green Lantern Corps (2016-) #37
> “POWER OF ZOD” part one! After a recent battle with Superman in ACTION COMICS, General Zod recovers as he takes control of a small, undeveloped world. When Hal Jordan investigates, it sets the course for a confrontation between the Kryptonian warrior and the Corps’ bravest and brightest Lanterns

It appears Zod and his 3 Kryptocronies have moved off planet, Planet Jekuul to be exact, and have just kicked the snot out of GL Hal Jordan (and K. Hanger-on Rayner). [Their last stint was in Action #984, right?] And SPOILER: Jon doesn't. Who's in?

Good issue. But Hal and the Alley Rat never really stood a chance against these guys in a Binary star system. That made the Kryptonians twice as powerful than normal. What really surprises me, though, is the the fact that Hal should have known this fact before attempting an arrest. Hal has been around Clark long enough to know Kryptonians are solar powered.

In future Solicitations, Hal will be taking on Zod alone. So it'll be interesting to see if Hal wins the rematch.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
