I ask you now to pronounce
your judgement on those accused...
9CLOSE ON NON
The monstrous face of NON peers through the light at JOR-EL. A man only to the extent that he is not an animal - a force of frightening destruction whose only sounds are terrifying guttural roars.
On this mindless aberration whose
only means of expression are
wanton violence and destruction....
NON lunges at JOR-EL with a roar, bounces back off the edge of the ring of light, which imprisons him.
CAMERA PANS TO URSA: A tall woman with a strikingly beautiful and cruel face. Consumed by a total hatred. Consumed by a total hatred of the male sex, she stares back at JOR-EL with patronizing contempt.
On the woman, URSA, whose perversions
and unreasoning hatred of men have
finally threatened even the male
children on our planet....
CAMERA PANS TO GENERAL ZOD: Glaring defiantly at JOR-El through the dazzling
light with a staggeringly vicious face. Even trapped in the prison of light he seems to
generate an evil force of his own.
And finally on General Zod -
Once trusted by this Council, charged
with maintaining the defenses of the
planet Krypton itself - the chief architect
of this intended revolution, the author of this
insidious plot to establish a new order among
Us - with himself as absolute ruler.
10WIDE ANGLE - TRIAL CHAMBER
The huge faces of the COUNCIL OF ELDERS peer down from the domed ceiling as JOR-EL finishes.
You have listened to the evidence.
The decision of the Council will
now be heard.
