And he's beyond your reach.

Bring that ship down.

Target locked.

Lay down your weapons.

Your forces are surrounded.

General Zod...

...for the crimes

of murder and high treason...

...the Council has sentenced you

and your fellow insurgents... three hundred cycles

of somatic reconditioning.

Do you have any last words?

You won't kill us yourself!

You wouldn'l sully your hands!

But you'll damn us... a black hole for eternity!

Jor-El was right.

You're a pack of fools,

And you.

You believe your son is safe?

I will find him.

I will reclaim

what you have taken from us.

I will find him.

I will find him, Lara.

I will find him!


Lady Lara, shouldn't you find refuge?

Roger, Coast Guard.

What about the men left inside?

- Greenhorn...

This is the last of the oxygen. I don't know

This is Coast Guard 6510.

We'll make one more pass then get out.

Wait, wait.

I got some guys on the helipad.

Right here!

Come on, come on! Let's go! Let's go!

- Let's go!

- Let's go!

Get that last guy loaded.

We have got to go.
