Will Thor kneel before Zod?
Will Thor kneel before Zod?
THE SUB-MARINER 4EVER!!!
DEATH TO NAMOR!!!
Difficult to call as Zod doesn't have many feats outside of going up against the Reeve Superman. Then you get a whole can of worms about whether all movie Kryptonians are equal.
If they are, Zod, if not, Thor.

Now even with that taken into acount Zod should still be a fair bit above Thor via power scaling but he dosnt have the feats to prove it. So I dont know.
For durability: he and the others were completely unaffected by police and military firepower brought to bear on them. This includes rockets from gunships and bazookas, as well as flamethrowers. For everything the humans threw at the Krytonians, the most they got was a simple lift of the eyebrows in a “Are you trying to hurt me?” dismissal of their impotence. Oh, and Zod actually took punches from a guy who can punt one of his followers across the city and pull California back together before it falls into the ocean and got up again for more. This is far beyond movie Thor’s durability.
For power: Zod’s heat vision blew up multiple cars effortlessly. Also, he and the others casually created a hurricane in New York city to show the humans they had no chance at all against them. Oh, and there is the defacing Mount Rushmore in mere seconds by heat vision to show their faces instead of the past Presidents.
For flying: Zod, Ursa, and Non flew across the country at speeds similarly shown by Superman in the first movie when he chased the missiles. This is far faster than movie Thor can fly.
For strength: Zod and the others bust effortlessly through walls and ceilings as if they aren’t there, and each traded punches with Superman (whom is massively stronger than movie Thor). While it was shown the Superman is stronger than any of the individual Krytonians, the New York City fight still demonstrated that they were in Superman’s class. Movie Thor is not in this class.
I'm pretty comfortable equating Zod's stats with Superman's, at least in the context of that particular movie. Their powersets are so pointedly identical that it would be weird not to. I probably wouldn't use feats from any of the other Superman movies though.

Now we know that part of that is effects, etc. But, still, you have to make a decision on whether to "spot" them Superman 1/4s feats, or only compare them to the feats shown in Superman 2, which drops them a WHOLE lot.
Im not saying Zod isnt above movie Thor but he was certainly below Reeves Superman

I'd bring up the fact that Superman went down to bolts of electricity, showing a lack of Kryptonian durability against that, but it would only open up the same can of worms it opened last time.
