Twitter: This verse basically started out as canon and branched off from there. And although it still draws from events as they occur on the show itself, many things are a lot further along and a lot different. Zod and Tess have been working together for months now to get the solar tower built and supposedly save the world from its impending doom. Zod has also encountered a few different characters along the way that are not part of Smallville canon but still play an important role in the verse, most notably cordy_chase1.
Don't own anything; Smallville, Zod, and everything else is owned by the CW, DC comics, and all those peoples. No infringement intended.
