General Zod is a Kryptonian military official. He administered the committee that selected youths to participate in the colonizer program to rebuild Kryptonian civilization on other planets after the government realized Krypton was doomed. After an interview with Kara Zor-El, Zod couldn't wait to tell Zor-El his daughter was selected and referred to him a loser. After Zod's ship left Krypton, it was never heard from again.

Years later, Zod reappeared on Oa with Non and Faora with Kryptonian Terraformer Robots. Coincidentally, Jessica Cruz was due to visit Oa for an official ceremony. Supergirl, Big Barda, Beast Boy, and Star Sapphire accompanied her. The robots attacked all but Supergirl. Zod mistook them as her captors who were preventing her from leaving Earth. Supergirl cleared things up. Zod apologized and deemed them friends then welcomed them to New Krypton. He explained the Lanterns heard of his plight to build a new Krypton and agreed to give Oa to fulfill their quest. Zod asked Non to escort Beast Boy, Big Barda, Star Sapphire, and Green Lantern to the New Krypton Visitors' Center while he and Faora talked with Supergirl. Zod promised New Krypton would be everything she loved about home but emphasized they needed her to help them to make that dream a reality. Supergirl was eager to assist. Zod held out the Groundbreaker and revealed she held the key for it. She recognized it as her parents' terraforming invention but didn't know anything about a key.
