Liquid geo (meaning 'liquid geometry') is a standard, multi-purpose display technology used by Kryptonian culture, consisting of a collection of silver beads that are suspended through a magnetic field and can be dynamically arranged to create a three-dimensional surface that hovers in the air.


Liquid geo was developed long ago by Kryptonians as their technological advancements flourished during the Golden Age of Krypton's history.[1]

During the Kryptonian Expansion, scout ships were outfitted with caches of liquid for projections within the cockpit, likely for visualizations of planets and communications.[1]

Service robots' thoraxes contain liquid geo. Kelex was able to display the vital signs of Kal-El as an infant during his birth, and later with Kelor, facilitated communication between Jor-El and Lara Lor-Van.[1]

The liquid geo manifested the command key Jor-El placed in Kal's pod.[1]

During Kal-El's launch from Krypton, a liquid geo display was used to show his destination, Earth, and the anatomy of humans for Jor-El to study.[1]

On Scout Ship 0344, a service robot used its liquid geo cache to form a plasma-tipped whip that it used to defend the ship from Clark Kent and Lois Lane, severely hurting Lois. Later, Jor-El walked Clark through Krypton's history when teaching his son about his heritage. This was all displayed with liquid geo.[1]

On the Black Zero prison frigate, liquid geo consoles were used to monitor activity on Earth, as well as display information regarding the world engine launched on the planet.[1]

The world engine deployed by the Black Zero possessed stores of liquid geo that it used as a defense mechanism when attacked by Superman.[1]

Lex Luthor used Scout Ship 0344's liquid geo display to learn about Steppenwolf and the Mother Boxes.[2]

General Zod implemented the liquid geo into his battle armor, using it as an interface for his arm device, capable of controlling the Black Zero.[3]


Liquid Geo was a standard multi-purposed technology used by Kryptonian culture in a variety of ways, due to it's ability to form solid constructs almost instantaneously. It was commonly used for display technology, since liquid geo could form dynamic three-dimensional shapes in mid-air, as long as suspended in a magnetic field, making for an intuitive visual interface to present information with. Zod's World Engine used liquid geo for defensive purposes, generating many huge tentacle-shaped solid constructs that were effective enough to hold off even Superman, though only for a short time.


  • According to a featurette from WIRED, liquid geo is not actually liquid, it is in fact composed of tiny tetrahedron-shaped metallic beads suspended in a magnetic field.
