Bio:
First Appearance: Adventure Comics #283


The Phantom Zone is an eerie twilight dimension in which people can exist as incorporeal phantoms, able to see into the universe from which they have been exiled, but incapable of touching or having any influence on anything in it. They do not eat, drink or sleep, and cannot talk, communicating by telepathy. It appears they can touch each other to a small degree, but not enough to harm one another. All in all, it is a terrible existence, in which one is denied all normal pleasures, and which can go on indefinitely, for in the Phantom Zone no one ever ages.

The Phantom Zone is only the outermost limit of the universe of a godlike being called Aethyr. Anyone penetrating deeper into its realm finds that all things there are shaped-and exist or not-by Aethyr's whim.

Only Superman of Earth-1 has traveled through the entire dimensional universe to escape from it and emerge in the universe of his birth.

The truth about Aethyr's realm was not suspected by Jor-El II when he discovered the Phantom Zone while trying to find a way to save the people of Krypton from the coming cataclysm he knew would shatter the planet. he could not condemn the whole race to the hideous existence in the dimension, but it occurred to him that it would be a perfect place to exile the worst criminals, since Krypton had no capital punishment.

Placed against a wall, shackled by specially treated chains that would not be affected by the Phantom Zone Projector, a criminal began his sentence in a hellish twilight world. Pressing the black button sent one into the Phantom Zone; pressing the white button could free a criminal. A Zone-o-Phone was invented to permit communication with criminals up for parole.
