Here's my solution to the debate.
They're the same guy, from two separate parallel universes. It's not entirely untrue all ready: They're both good black-haired humanoid aliens from destroyed homeworlds who have chosen to protect their adopted home of Earth after being raised to be good-natured by their adoptive backwoods Earth parents. They're just so separated on the spectrum of changes from the original universe that they're not readily recognizable as identical. Ergo, what was krypton became planet Vegeta, Jor-El went from savior scientist to Bardock who saved his son in a similar way, Vegeta is Zod, Krillin is Jimmy Olsen, and arguing who wins is like arguing if Justice Lords Batman really is stronger then Justice League Batman.
There, now everybody just eat a freakin' sandwich and chill out.
