History[]

Early Operations[]

Founded by Thomas Kord at some point during or prior to 1985, Kord Industries eventually became a leading force in the technological defense industry, gaining a reputation in military defense contracts.[1] However, at some point. Kord Industries moved away from developing weapons. After Thomas passed away, leadership was passed over to his son Ted Kord, much to the chagrin of his daughter, Victoria Kord.[4]

Victoria Kord's Leadership[]

After Ted went missing, his sister Victoria became CEO. However, with her unquenched thirst for terrorism, she sold weapons and began recruiting criminals and corrupted officials, while others were children being taken from their families. In one of these scenarios, Victoria had Kord Industries involved in selling weapons to fund guerrilla forces in Guatemala during the country's civil war. During the war, a young Ignacio was orphaned after his home was destroyed by bombshells manufactured by Kord, which also killed Ignacio's mother. Ignacio was soon found by Victoria, who saw potential in him and molded him into a soldier. After Ignacio was crippled by a hidden landmine, he became the first in the One Man Army Corps project, which Victoria revitalized after the project was previously shut down.

Post-Black Zero Event[]

Kord Industries pledged to expand investments within Metropolis in the wake of the devastating events of the Black Zero Event and the example laid out by billionnaire Lex Luthor, who had earlier announced his plans to rebuild Lexcorp Tower.[2]

By 2015, Kord Industries' research and development budget had reached $707,000,000. However, by that time they were facing heavy competition in the field from LexCorp Industries, thereby placing Kord in second place in terms of budget.[1] That same year, Kord Industries' products had become one of the many popular brands being sold at the Avenue of Tomorrow in Metropolis.[5]
