Hey W's. I'm hoping you guys can help me, because I have been Googling and Googling and getting nowhere. A while back (I think 2001) DC had a cool storyline that had General Zod return and battle Superman. This was where he broke Supes' jaw. I remember him(Zod) also battling Bizzaro. Anyways, I am trying to track down the whole story-arch. The problem is that is spanned several different series of comic books. I remember it being in Action comics, but there were several others that this whole Arc encompassed. If anyone can tell me the entire listing of comics that this Story Arc was in, or point me to a good resource, it would be appreciated. Also, I know there are some sites that have scans of old comics, so if these are scanned somewhere, I'd love to know of that site.
Google for superman zod jaw and on the first page of hits you will come across this link, which lists the story as "Our Worlds At War" and includes a chronological list of the issues in that particular arc.
I hope this is what you're looking for.

If I were at home right now, I could dig out the issues for you.
Anyways, this storyline took place either right before, or right after OUR WORLDS AT WAR. It was where we found out that this Zod looked exactly like Clark/Superman, and he was able to trap Superman on the moon (I think) and took over the planet (or something that.) They finished off the story with a huge battle led by Superman and President Lex.
Now that I'm thinking about it, it was after OWAW... here we go, I'm stealing this from the Superman homepage.

You guys have been very helpful! There is one (or two comics) in particular where I remember Zod fighting Bizzaro. I don't know if it was during this story arc or if it was some kind of alternate universe type of thing. All the resources I've read don't seem to list this particular issue. Thanks again, guys! you are the best!
Definitely doesn't look good, and it's a shame because DC produces far better material, in my opinion. The only X-book worth reading is Astonishing, with the rest ranging from poor to absolutely dreadful.
