History[]

Ras-Krom was a Kryptonian criminal who had been exiled to the Phantom Zone. His first action on escaping the Phantom Zone was to try and start an atomic war on Earth in order to blast the rest of the immaterial inmates free.

Ras' disguise as The Old Man of the Cosmos was quickly seen through by Superman but, due to a protective aura provided by a special belt-buckle, Ras-Krom could not be sent back into the Phantom Zone.

What proved to be Ras' undoing was his superstitious nature; as he had brought his Kryptonian folk beliefs to Earth. He first invoked a One-Eyed Grompus to bring a criminal luck; but was later tricked by Superman's comet fakery into hiding in a cave that neutralized his anti-Phantom Zone Ray aura. Ras-Krom was returned to the Phantom Zone.
