Nadira is a Kryptonian soldier in the Warrior Guild under the command of General Zod. Nadira has special abilities when in the star system of a Yellow Sun. She followed Zod in his conquest of Krypton before being imprisoned in the Phantom Zone before they went to Earth where she was re-inprisoned in the Zone.


Earlier LifeEdit

Born on the planet Krypton as an engineered warrior, Nadira joined the Kryptonian Warrior Guild under General Zod's leadership.

After Zod started the Sword of Rao movement to overthrow the Kryptonian Law Council, Nadira joined him. They were all later captured and inprisoned in the Phantom Zone for their crimes.

After escaping the Zone thanks to Krypton's destruction, they searched the universe for survivors before following a beacon to Earth.

Arrival on EarthEdit

After Kal-El activated an ancient Scout Ship on the planet Earth, Zod and his troops followed the signal and sent a message out across the planet demanding Kal-El be turned over to them otherwise the planet would perish.

After Lois Lane and Kal-El were brought aboard Black Zero, they had their minds probed for information regarding the wereabouts of the Codex. After Lois had her mind read, Car-Vex escorted her to a holding cell and through her inside. Jor-El assisted Lois in escaping the Black Zero after his AI was released from the House of El Command Key. Nadira and the rest of the soldiers tried to stop her escape but were thwarted by the Jor-El AI closing the doors on them.

When Zod, Faora, Nam-Ek all returned from their initial failure to retrieve the codex from Earth, Nadira was present as Jax-Ur announced he had located the codex within Kal-El's individual cells.

After launching the World Engine, Nadira was aboard Black Zero above Metropolis when a C-17 carrying Kal-El's Spaceship was crashed into Black Zero creating a temporary portal to the Phantom Zone sucking all including Nadira in.

Had Nadira entered a star system with that of a yellow G-type main-sequence star, then her body would have absorbed the solar energy, tremendously enhancing her strength, and granting her several incredible powers, identical to those of Kal-El, who was raised from infancy on the planet Earth.
