Zod is a former general in the Kryptonian military and was banished to the Phantom Zone. He would often escape the Phantom Zone only to be defeated by Superman and returned to his prison. Zod, Faora, and Quex-Ul passed by the Phantom Zone Projector's view screen while Superman was in the middle of giving Firestorm, Blue Beetle, and Stargirl a tour of the Fortress of Solitude. The alien kitten being carried around by Stargirl was startled by them and jumped onto the Projector's console. As a result, Superman was pulled into the Phantom Zone. Firestorm made it worse by pressing the other button and freeing Zod, Faora, and Quex-Ul. Zod vowed the make the people of Earth suffer. They traded shots with the Leaguers but broke off and made their way to the Arsenal Room in the North Quadrant. They procured blasters, since they were powerless, and made their way to the exit to power up on solar energy outside. Zod was amused when Blue Beetle tried to stop them with a small, ineffectual piece of Kryptonite. They regained their powers and fought Blue Beetle and Stargirl.
Both Faora and Quex-Ul failed but Zod charged and knocked out Blue Beetle and Stargirl. He implored Faora and Quex-Ul to join him in executing them with heat vision. Firestorm returned and generated Kryptonite from his hands. Zod resisted but fell like his soldiers. While repairs were made to the Projector, Zod and company were tied up in Kryptonite chains. As the chains were enough of an indignity, Zod soon tired of hearing the teenage superheroes blather on and on to Superman. Superman indulged Zod and returned the trio back to the Phantom Zone.
