Very puzzling, especially given the fact MoS also rehashes a villain with previous big screen exposure.
Star Trek isn't in the same league with Superman. It's not even close.

Or, maybe not so puzzling, if we're willing to at least consider the possibility MoS rehashes Zod in a better way than ID rehashes Khan? *slaps self for even thinking such blasphemy*

Would taking the time to fill in all the Khan back-story, even if they totally retconned it, made it longer to compensate that time taken, have better resonated with audiences the way MoS seems to be doing?
How would that have helped? You have to get the people into the theater first to see it.
