Once considered a military hero of the planet Krypton, General Dru-Zod decided he would rather rule his world than serve it. He launched a failed coup, after which he was exiled to the prison dimension known as the Phantom Zone. Soon after, Krypton exploded and the years flew by, but General Zod remained safe in the Phantom Zone without aging. Over the years, he’s escaped time and time again, and used his Kryptonian powers to threaten Earth. All the while declaring that his enemy Superman will die—or kneel before Zod!
