attempted to take over Krypton using a machine that produced Bizarro-like duplicates during a period of
turmoil caused by the termination of the space program; he was sentenced to the Phantom Zone for 40
years for his crimes. Zod was first released by Kal-El (during his Superboy career) when his term of

Gog

The Kingdom #1
(February 1999)

In a possible future timeline, a boy called William was the sole survivor of the destruction of Kansas in a
nuclear blast. Saved by Superman, he came to view the Man of Steel as a savior and became a minister of a

death of his wife. Reduced to a formless entity that inhabits mechanical bodies, the Cyborg desires to cause
Superman equal pain. He masqueraded as a resurrected Superman after the hero's apparent death, claiming
to be the result of Superman's remains being reconstructed into cybernetic form. The ruse was a
tremendous success, even earning the Cyborg an endorsement from the U.S. President as the "true"
Superman. Hank Henshaw betrayed those whose lives he was entrusted with when he obliterated Coast
City with the help of Mongul; this event led to Green Lantern Hal Jordan's mental breakdown and later
transformation into Parallax. Later he became a member of the Sinestro Corps, still continuing to

(Pre-Crisis)
Adventure Comics

Jax-Ur was an amoral and criminally deviant scientist on the planet Krypton. He was imprisoned in the
Phantom Zone for destroying Wegthor, one of the Krypton's inhabited (Population: 500) moons while
experimenting with a nuclear warhead-equipped rocket. Jax-Ur's intention was to launch and test-fire it
against a passing space rock. If this test proved successful, Jax-Ur would then commence the build-up of a
massive personal nuclear arsenal with which he would overthrow the Kryptonian government, and place
the entire planet under his dominion. (In the World of Krypton miniseries, he is shown test-launching a
nuclear missile, intended to destroy a space rock, but a collision with a spaceship piloted by Jor-El sent it
off-course.) Because of this, space travel was forbidden. He calls himself "the worst criminal in the
Phantom Zone". His sentence for his act of mass murder is life imprisonment. In his first appearance, he
managed to escape from the Phantom Zone, and posed as a super-powered version of Jonathan Kent.
Superboy eventually sent Jax-Ur back to the Phantom Zone. Most of his later Silver Age appearances show
him in his ghostly Phantom Zone form. Jax-Ur did not appear after the Crisis on Infinite Earths for some
time, as until the recent appearance of Supergirl there was a rule that no Kryptonians survived except
Superman. However in one story he shows some honour, as he is released to help Superman defeat a
criminal who caused Krypton's destruction and allows himself to be sent back.

(Post-Crisis) Action
Comics #846
(February 2007)

He is one of the criminals unleashed from the Phantom Zone by Zod. In the current continuity, Jax-Ur
destroyed Krypton's moon during an attempt at interstellar space travel. When the moon was destroyed
Brainiac became aware of Krypton and attacked Kandor killing millions and put the city into a bottle.
Jax-Ur subsequently became the first prisoner banished to the Phantom Zone. Jax-Ur is shown to be of the
Science guild, is bald, and has one eye. He is part of General Zod's sleeper agents on Earth. He is currently
employed by S.T.A.R. Labs as a scientist. Jax-Ur appeared in Superman: The Animated Series, where he
was voiced by Ron Perlman. He was portrayed more like Zod, a military genius who had attempted to
overthrow the Science Council. His co-conspirator, and possible lover, is a beautiful Kryptonian female
with long white hair named Mala (based on Ursa and Faora).

completely. This event causes Luthor to snap and become a dangerous criminal who plots the destruction
of Superman.

advanced intellect. Siegel and Shuster retired the Ultra-Humanite as Superman's archfoe when Lex Luthor
was introduced into the Superman comic. Humanite was retired for several decades only to return with
Superman (Earth-Two) and the Justice Society of America the targets of his machinations. The
