Oh, good. Alura remains terrible. Was kind of worried there she might suddenly start not being a horrible person.

"And I will be her general!"
Oh, Geoff Johns... For you, subtlety is something that happens to other people, isn't it?
After all, without him saying that, how would we know this bearded Kryptonian is General Zod?

Considering this was what, the third or fourth Zod the DCU had introduced, it's only because he's standing next to Sarah Douglas and Jack O'Halloran expy's I would have been prepared to make a guess that this WAS Zod.

Really? Despite the fact that it's Geoff "subtlety" Johns writing, he's a Kryptonian with a beard talking about being a general with the previously established xenoist Alura, it's only the whatshername and oojamaflip he's got with him that makes you guess he's Zod?
It's not like he could be mistaken for Dan the Gardening Man.

Were Superman's enemies ever dug out of the phantom zone, btw?

I don't think so. Not before the universe got erased and replaced again, anyway.

Alura says Superman's not like us because he's human at the core, except none of the concerns he had with Alura were uniquely human. He's trying to explain that people are pissed at Kandor because she's ignored at least one Earth nation's sovereignty, abducted its citizens, and murdered innocent people. Most sentient species in the universe would be similarly upset at the Kandorians for this mess.

I understand we need drama and conflict for this storyline, but the extent they're showing Alura to be unreasonable is a bit much. Why does no one else in Kandor see how insane she's being?

Alura's line of thinking is that if Superman were of a properly Kryptonian mindset, then the sovereignty of non-Kryptonian nations, the security of non-Kryptonian citizens, the lives and relative innocence of non-Kryptonian people, would be secondary concerns to whatever the current Kryptonian goal might be. That by thinking in the broader, "all people don't like being treated like this" sense, he is being something other than Kryptonian.

Next she'll promise to build a wall.

Was a there a Green Lantern Corps active at the time, who might have been reasonably well placed, and resourced, to deal with interplanetary conflict like this one?

Yes, and they did get involved. IIRC, around the time Superman joined the Kandorese security forces, the GLC sent Hal Jordan and the Daxamite Green Lantern, Sodam Yat, to act as inspectors. Alura sneered at them, and I believe nothing much came of it.

Seriously, though, who thought that giving Lex the Chaos Emeralds would be a good idea?

Oh, what harm could it do?
I mean, if all Drs. Eggman and Wily could use them for was rewrite history, what could Lex do?
It's not like out-of-control Chaos energies could, say, erase a significant portion of a world's supporting c- err, inhabitants from existence.
