Originally, Zod was going to be the Kal-El from an alternate universe Krypton created by Brainiac 13 and based on actual Kryptonian history. That Krypton was introduced in a storyline called "Return to Krypton."
Zod's origin was changed, but there was a VERY strong link to Kal-El. Like the Smallville Zod, he wanted to turn the sun red.
Zod decides to explain his origin to Superman, and how he is "everything you are not."
Joe-El was a smart guy, but he really screwed up not realizing that radioactive pieces of Krypton would travel with Kal-El's ship to Earth.
In Soviet Russia, yellow sun weakens YOU!
"Let's see, my father is really dead, everything I know is a lie, blah blah blah... Hey, this stuff about the guy in blue tights and a red cape is interesting!"
This Russian getting contacted by the ghost of General Zod might be a bit of a stretch, but it seems to work.
