In the distant past, a dying alien race created a number of devices to preserve their culture and sent them into space where they would encounter other civilizations and link their colonies. When a small group of these aliens arrived on the planet Krypton, a militaristic faction, led by Kem-L, killed them and corrupted one of their devices to preserve his ideal of Kryptonian culture; this device would eradicate alien influences, and hence Kem-L called it the "Eradicator."
One of the surviving aliens, the Cleric, took the Eradicator and a group of followers and left Krypton. Unfortunately, his followers died shortly after leaving; Kryptonians have a genetic link to their planet, and will die if they leave it.
The Cleric kept the Eradicator for 200,000 years, until he encountered Superman on Warworld. With the device, the two exchanged memories, and the Cleric had a vision of Superman's death at the hands of Mongul. The Cleric wished to prevent this from happening, and the Eradicator transported them to his asteroid. He noticed that the device changed to protect Krypton's sole survivor, and they used it to heal their wounds, both physical and spiritual. When the Cleric gave the Eradicator to Superman for safekeeping, the old alien passed away.
