The Groundbreaker is an invention of Zor-El and Alura-In Ze during the last days of Krypton. It had power equivalent to thousands of Terraforming Robots. It could turn an entire barren planet into a facsimile of Krypton in moments with an adequate power source or battery. Once set in motion, it couldn't be stopped. Kara inquired what would happen if she landed on a inhabited planet. Alura stated they wouldn't use it since it would destroy every living thing and anything touching the ground would be annihilated. They designed Alura's Mnemosyne Crystal to be the key to activate it. On the day of Krypton's destruction, Zor-El dropped the Groundbreaker. He told Alura to give Kara the crystal anway then she was launched off the planet. In the present, the Groundbreaker came into the possession of General Zod. Zod planned to use it on Oa but didn't have the key to activate it. He thought Supergirl had it but she didn't know anything about it.
