Well maybe he'll stop this one.

Why?

If the characters are all acting in-character, Zod will say something about humans and then plow the field.  The X-Men will listen, get ready to attack, likely by letting Wolverine go out first, and then get stomped.

Seriously, people forget how much Wolverine carried the team and how little of a part Xavier played in the original trilogy.

X1: Wolverine is the one who beats Mystique, fights Sabertooth solo while the team is captured, then sets Cyke and Jean up for the kill shot against Sabertooth and frees the entire team.  Then comes the climax which revolves around the team working together to get Logan up to the top of the Statue of Liberty to bust Magneto's machine, then he finishes it all off by saving Rogue.  Toad is the only bad guy that Wolverine doesn't confront.  Also, Xavier spent most of the time in a coma.

X2: Wolverine leads the escape from the mansion, kills Deathstrike, then captures Stryker.  Jean does have the big save at the end and there's some stuff with Storm, but Wolverine is still the MPV.  Oh, and Cyclops and Xavier spend the entire movie captured.

X3: Cyclops and Xavier die at the beginning, Rogue leaves the story to get rid of her powers, and Jean turns evil.  Wolverine becomes the de-facto leader, confronts Magneto in the woods, formulates the strategy for the final battle, distracts Magneto long enough for Beast to hit him with the mutant cure, then kills Jean.  Colossus exists only to throw Wolverine when he needs it.  To be fair, Kitty, Storm, and Iceman all took out a major enemy each, so there's that.

^^^you've nailed this.
There's really no reason to go against Zod here.
