One of Zod's soldiers is named Nam-Ek. Nam-Ek was a minor Kryptonian who appeared in the December 1974 Superman comic "The Loneliest Man in the Universe" (Superman Vol. 1, Number 282). Nam-Ek was also one of the Kryptonians to arrive on Earth, in the season five premiere episode of Smallville (2001). Additionally, Nam-Ek is also the name of the home planet of the character Piccolo from the vast manga animé series "Dragon Ball-Z" - a story which centers around a child being sent to Earth as the last of his kind, who possesses special powers, and protecting Earth from a surviving member of his race, bent on global domination.

Will you not understand? Krypton's core is collapsing! We may only have a matter of weeks! I warned you, harvesting the core was suicide! It has accelerated the process of implosion!
Our energy reserves were exhausted. What would you have us do, El?
Look to the stars, like our ancestors did! There are habitable worlds within reach. We can begin by using the old outposts.
Are you seriously suggesting that we evacuate the entire planet?
No, everybody here is already dead. Give me control...

Helped me win medals LITERALLY
Don't judge this movie. Don't listen to what others have to say about it(positive or negative) don't compare this with other superman or superhero films. Watch this movie without the bias and without reading the reviews, as I did along with 200 other students in my boarding school's auditorium. We were mesmerized would be an understatement. The movie is not perfect. There are and will be in the future better movies in man of steel. There are some glaring flaws in this movie most prominent being the destruction and loss of civilian lives. I enjoyed the destruction but it doesn't mean it was justified (superman kissing in the midst didn't help). As there are flaws there are also moments which define the movie and man these moments, lets talk about them. The SOUNDTRACK is probably the best we've seen on any movie this century . I was 15 when I saw this and believe it or not the music helped me cope up my fear of competitive swimming. When swimming there is this moment, right before you dive off you feel numb, butterflies running through the stomach and there is nothing in the world you want more than to go back. The theme helped me cope up with that dreaded feeling as whenever i felt that, I would be reminded of the film's music and all of it would disappear.I won medals due to the positive energy of hope the soundtrack(during certain scenes like the first flight ) conveys. Hans Zimmer is a legend. The back story of Clark. The way he saves that bus from falling or his father consoling him just adds a realistic depth to a character as unrealistic as superman. This goes beyond the storytelling to normalize the myth of the spaceboy and succeeds. By the time the backstory is completed( in a non-linear way) Clark Kent is more human than most characters portrayed on-screen ever will be. The tone. another stand out feature of the movie is the somber tone it has. Every character is given time to develop and the character development is never rushed. The prep talk. When Clark takes the road of discovery he meets with the memories of his real father. He explains to Clark his place in the world he gives him a life lesson relevant in the real world. All these things and considering the middling reviews this movie got, makes this an underrated movie. I hope the future would be kind to this movie and see that, despite its flaws what a movie Snyder made. Special props to Zimmer as there might not be a better background score for a superhero movie, period.
