And then a group of Krypton soldier are approaching the entrance and the leader of the group, Faora is commanding the guards to let them enter the facility but the guards are disagree to let them enter the facility. Faora told them General Zod sent her and her group and the guards said Zod has no authority in here and after hearing that Faora sarcastically told them that she and her group must bust themself in and then she suddenly smack one of the guards and break his neck and quickly killed the other and after she do that, they enter the facility. After a short firefight inside the facility, they reach the stabilizer room and then she contacted Zod and told him that she has found the core stabilizer and the core stabilizer is a Kryptonian Radioactive Crystal. The film shifted to the house of El, Lara Lor-Van, the wife of Krypton's top scientist, Jor El, has given a birth to their new born child and they decided to named him, Kal-El.

The film shifted into the next day, Jor-El told the council that Krypton's core is collapsing because the Core Stabilizer has been stolen and no one knows who stole the stabilizer and he said the planet will be destroyed in 24 hours and he said they must evacuate the planet but the council denied it and they sure the planet is fine because Krypton's scientists has found another way to stabilize the core. Jor-El said he already knew that and he really sure the new way wouldn't work. A second after, he's being interrupted by General Zod, who have staged a coup d'etat. Zod admitted that he ordered Faora to stole the stabilizer so he can destroy Krypton and built a new one because he think Krypton is already doomed and corrupted even before the stabilizer has been stolen. Zod ask Jor-El to join him but Jor-El turned down the offer and he said Zod should be shame to his self for what he did. Then Jor-El punches Zod in the face and the two got into a fist fight. After a short fight, Jor-El overpowered Zod and he took the Stabilizer from Zod and escape from the council that has been filled by Zod's followers.

Jor-El made his way to his house and after he reach it, he and Lara put Kal-El on a shuttle to get him out from Krypton before it explodes. But they must find a planet that suitable for Kryptonian and Jor-El put a command key on the shuttle which can display a hologram of him so he can communicate with his son when he were older. Then Jor-El's helper drone told them that Zod and his followers has surrounded his house and then Jor-El put on his battle armor and take his rifle and protect the launch sequence. After a few minutes, Zod entered the room where Jor-El and Lara at and Jor-El and Zod continues their brawl. In the middle of the fight, Lara has found the suitable planet, Earth, a planet very far from Krypton and then Lara plant the Radioactive crystal inside Kal-El's body but Zod prevent her by saying the crystal is Krypton's future but Lara decided to stay loyal to his husband by planting the crystal inside Kal-El's body and launch the shuttle. Seeing the launch, Zod angrily screams "NO!!!!" and stabbed Jor-El and killing him instantly. Zod decided to spare Lara because he regrets his decision for killing his best friend, Jor-El without thinking it first but he decided to take Lara as a prisoner. After they exit the House of El, the Kryptonian Army has surrounded Zod and his followers and they are forced to surrender.

Later that day in the court, Zod and his followers are sentenced to the Phantom Zone for eternity for his unmercyable crimes. Shortly after Zod and his followers are sent to the Phantom Zone, Krypton explodes, killing all life forms in the planet. Meanwhile, Kal-El's shuttle landed on Smallvile and specifically in a farm belongs to Kent Family. Realizing the impact, Jonathan and Martha Kent are wake up from their sleep and get to the crash site and they found Kal-El inside it.
