First appearance

JSA: The Unholy Three #1
(May, 2003)



Zod inhabited his universe's version of Krypton, a planet which approximated the human idea of utopia. However, Zod began showing psychopathic tendencies - while just a child, he released a virus that killed dozens. Given the severity of his actions, and the lack of any remorse, he was sentenced to the Phantom Zone - the first child on Krypton to merit such treatment.

On Earth, during the 1940s, the American government received word that the Nazis were working on teleportation research. Eager to get ahead, they attempted their own project. Unfortunately, the equipment overheated, producing no portal, but plucking the boy Zod out of the Phantom Zone. Feigning amnesia, Zod was given to a Kansas family and raised, as "Clark Kent", with Army supervision. When he developed his superpowers, he kept their full extent secret.

As Earth had a number of superhuman espionage agents already, Zod was trained for this role. Under the codename 'Super-Man', he was sent into Eastern Europe with the Bat and the Clock. He fought Parasite and Steelwolf, while investigating his sole weakness: a nuclear device the Russians had created. Finding his information, he incapacitated or killed several agents and headed into Russia to destroy the device. However, he was ultimately killed before he could finish the job.
