General Zod! What does the scouter say about his power level? – A Man of Steel Review

ManofsteelMan of Steel has been on the cinema circuit for a while, but I didn’t want to ruin the experience and watch it at the only crappy cinema in Pietermaritzburg.

I tried all the red shirts and to my amazement all three smalls were too big for me. This is despite the fact that I’ve put on 3.5kgs, most of which is muscle. The shirt didn’t sit on my shoulders properly, or the arms were cut way too long. The white t-shirt was a perfect fit, but the mysterious material it was made out of had one major flaw.
