MOSAIC Episode 1 – Kryptonian Tech!

coverblackIn this episode, we cover the Remnants of Kryptonian Technology. What’s still on Earth after “Man of Steel” concluded and may appear again in the DC Cinematic Universe:

  1. Lois’s Escape Pod
  2. Kryptonian Signals or Code
  3. Environmental Impact / Terraformed Earth
  4. Zod’s Body
  5. Scout Ship
  6. Zod’s Arctic Shuttle /Dropship
  7. Zod’s Armor

While covering our topics, we answer the following questions:

  • Who is Car-Vex?
  • How did Lois fall away from the Phantom Zone singularity?
  • Could we see the return of Jor-El’s AI?
  • Why don’t Kryptonians have hovering jet packs?
  • Did the Kryptonians know they weren’t alone in the universe?
  • A new DCCU origin for The Flash?
  • Is Kryptonian armor powered?  How durable is it?

…and much more!

  1. First of all, I’ve just started listening to this podcast, but I love what I’ve heard so far–including your youtube channel–and can’t wait to catch up! However, I’d like to bring up a point about the bio-electric field emitted by Kryptonians on Earth; I could be wrong, but I’m pretty sure that this field only extends slightly over the body. Meaning that it protects his costume/uniform (because it’s compressed to his skin) and not his cape or his street clothes. Therefore it would not extend over armor or the clothes that Clark was wearing on the oil rig.

    As for the small arms fire and the knife that killed Jor-El; keep in mind that the small arms fire used by Zod, Jor-El and Lois were energy weapons. I would imagine they have a much different effect than our kinetic Earth weapons. As for the knife; it probably did just hit an unarmored area–especially considering that the armor that Jor-El was wearing only seemed to cover his arms shoulders and chest (I can’t recall how much of his lower body was covered–if any).

    You have a good theory, though–as you can see, I had a similar thought ;P. Keep up the great work!

    • Thanks for listening and your comments. I think we agree on the bioelectric field which is why I said his clothes are in tatters from the oil rig rescue… but I might not say it in this episode, it’s been a while!

      I agree that the weapons are energy vs. kinetic (the artbook and Blu-Ray extras explicitly say they’re plasma), I guess I’m pointing out the assumption that the type of energy matters since the total amount of energy would still be about the same. That said, it is a traditional trope that Superman might feel an electrical shock more than, say, a physical punch containing more energy. Maybe that’s a function of how his forcefield works? We’ll see!

      • You do mention that in a later episode, true. You make a good point about electricity still harming him, but I think it could also be that they have more of a kick when they hit someone. Which, due to them having the same mass as people without powers, would mean that they would still be knocked back–especially if they weren’t prepared to withstand it.

  2. Also, you make a very cool point about how people–especially in the DC Universe–would definitely mess around with Zod’s body! I never considered that, but you so very right! Many people, good and bad–regardless of their intentions–will, most certainly, want to get their hands on all of this tech!
