Moons and planets are two different things but there are moons that are capable of sustaining life after a few changes.
As for the limits, from what I saw last night the engine was altering Earth's gravity somehow making it more fit for Kryptonians. That's an insane feat of science. You wouldn't need to create liquid or move the planet to do what they did on Mars.
Especially if we really get in to this. One there's already water and ice on Mars irl so one can assume in the DC universe that Mars has it too. More importantly in the DC universe, they already had an established thriving alien race on Mars.
Zods main priority could also be the codex. Once he found it on Earth, he saw that the planet also happens to be just right to be terraformed as well? And it comes with billions of slaves to rule? And he can exact his revenge on the Els?
The way I saw it. Earth could've been changed but with the codex and the engine he could've went to other planets in that solar system.
He just got mad at Supes and then after fighting decided to kill humanity and get back at Jor-El through his son. That's how I saw it.
And just from what I remember reading before, Zod would have been better terraforming Venus because Mars is supposedly too small and has no atmosphere? I'm no expert. In Venus, I guess Kryptonians would have been able to stand the heat and I think I read that outside of the temperature, Venus would have been the better choice.
I keep saying Mars cuz I ******* like Mars is all
but yes he could've did it to Venus and with the hrs in the day there and being closer to the Sun they probably would've been able to absorb sun rays to become stronger.

As a sci-fi dude I couldn't help but ask myself again, if yall dudes got the tech to terraform Earth and change it in to Krypton why the **** you aint just do that on Mars?
So many Ls. If Zod did that he would've had a whole planet with all the time to get the codex thingy and restart the race and create an army to enslave Earth. Literally nobody could stop him cuz humans can't even travel to Mars and Superman hasn't shown he can fly out in space like that.
The only reason he would go with Mars instead of earth is to avoid conflict with superman. It's not like he cares about humans or that humans can do anything to stop him.
But the thing is superman is the codex so he has to fight and kill superman to be able to rebuild krypton. So there's really no reason in his mind to choose Mars over earth seeing that the only opposition is someone he has to kill anyways
Yeah but now stick with this mind frame of this bad guy who is suppose to be a general and tactual genius and has a mission of making a new Krypton.
Yes he thought he wouldn't have lost and really didn't until Kal killed him but he could've continued the guise of coming in peace like he did to start. Could've said I'm going to remake our home on this planet over here so I won't be far away. Also lets remember Zod didn't know at first Supes was the codex. Could've took his time with it is all I'm saying. Then next week flung a bunch of asteroids at Earth and wiped out mankind that way leaving Supes no choice but to give up.
