Nadira is a Kryptonian war criminal and member of the Sword of Rao, as well as one of the first great enemies of the hero Superman.

Together with General Zod, Nadria attempted to re-establish Krypton on Earth by bringing about a terraformation apocalypse (in the Black Zero Event), but she was ultimately defeated by Superman and re-imprisoned in the Phantom Zone.


Earlier life

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 Earth

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 the Black Zero, they had their minds probed for information regarding the whereabouts 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-Ul, 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 the Black Zero above Metropolis when a C-17 carrying, Kal-El's spaceship, was crashed into the Black Zero creating a temporary portal to the Phantom Zone sucking all including Nadira in.
