General Zod is one of the criminals of Krypton who was placed in the Phantom Zone by Superboy's father Jor-El in the Pocket Universe. When Lex Luthor used one of Superboy's devices in his underground lab to find where Superboy disappeared to, he accidentally accessed the Phantom Zone where he found Zod, who called himself Von-El who along with his wife Mara and his associate Ston-Ar who trapped in that place following the destruction of Krypton. Zod helped Luthor reassemble the Phantom Zone projector stored in Superboy's lab in order to free the three of them, who then proceeded to destroy the projector as well as the lab, with Mara and Ston-Ar revealing themselves to be Zaora and Quex-Ul. From that point on, Zod, Zaora, and Quex-Ul terrorized Earth, making themselves its rulers and killing anyone that got in their way. However, Lex Luthor assembled himself a fighting force which included a Supergirl of his own creation that managed to hold their own against three escaped Phantom Zone criminals. Zod decided that the Earth beings were no longer fit subjects to rule over, and so with Zaora and Quex-Ul he killed all of them except for those inside Luthor's Smallville citadel by destabilizing the Earth's core, causing the atmosphere to be instantly destroyed.

After Lex Luthor had sent Supergirl to the New Earth reality to contact Superman and then transported both heroes to the Pocket Universe, Zod, Zaora, and Quex-Ul engaged them and the rest of Luthor's resistance team in battle, destroying the Smallville citadel, killing all the resistance team members, and turning Supergirl into a melted puddle of protoplasm. Superman traveled to Superboy's underground lab and, finding the Gold Kryptonite sample there, used it to depower Zod, Zaora, and Quex-Ul, capturing them inside the lab now turned into a prison. Though Zod taunted Superman by saying he will find a way to restore his powers and then come to the New Earth to destroy its Earth, he and the other two Phantom Zone criminals were subjected to fatal exposure to Green Kryptonite radiation as their sentence. Zod blamed the whole thing on Quex-Ul, who then turned against Zod and strangled him to death as he himself died of the radiation. All three of them were buried on the Pocket Universe Earth.
