Aliens made contact with the planet in search of a missing member of their race. General Zod of Krypton demanded that the Earth hand over Kal-El to his custody other face they will face the consequences. Zod landed his Black Zero and began his search for Kal-El where he and his forces tracked Kal-El to the small town of Smallville where he and his forces were attacked by the United States of America Armed Forces who were no match for the highly powerful Kryptonians. Kal-El revealed himself however and protecting the humans where his many years of using his powers proved too much for Zod and his forces who fled. Activating the World Engine, Zod began terraforming the planet into a new Krypton but Kal-El, now dubbed 'Superman' destroyed the world engine as Colonel Hardy and Emil Hamilton sacrificed themselves for the world by flying a C-17 carrying Kal-El's Spaceship into Black Zero sucking all the Kryptonians except Superman and Zod back into the Phantom Zone. Kal-El and Zod battled after in Metropolis resulting in Superman reluctantly snapping Zod's neck.
