How Zod joined the Tourney
General of Krypton, Zod was banished to the Phantom Zone for attempting to conquer Krypton. An ultra-nationalist, Zod will do anything to promote Krypton supremacy, including genocide.
After escaping the Phantom Zone, Zod and his entourage sought to turn Earth to the image of Krypton. However, a SWAT officer named Kurtis Stryker learns of Kryptonite and hopes to use it to stop Zod before he can accomplish his plans.
