Below you can check out three character designs for Zod in the New 52 DC Comics as well as Superman: Earth One Vol. 3.

Bob Harras announced that Zod will be the featured villain in upcoming issues of Superman/Wonder Woman with mention of Doomsda, and Zod will be popping up in the pages of Superman: Earth One Vol. 3.

Zod will also debut in the September Villain's Month one shot from Greg Pak and Ken Lashley.

The Zod designs that follow are by Kenneth Rocafort for the New 52 and Ardian Syaf for Superman: Earth One Vol. 3.

In his Villains Month one-shot, Zod’s origin will be revealed. Not only will you see the infamous Superman villain in his New 52 debut, but you’ll also see him at an early age on an abandoned island and fighting monsters following his parents’ death. It’s Jor-El who acts as Zod’s ticket off the island, and the brotherly alliance they form is something that will be explored. It’s also something that might be the catalyst of some of the friction between Jor-El and Zor-El

Then, in this fall’s SUPERMAN/WONDER WOMAN, fans can look forward to Zod taking on the role of the series’ first major villain. As for Doomsday? There’s a connection there too, but I won’t say anything more about that just yet.

Zod will be popping up in the pages of the upcoming original graphic novel, SUPERMAN: EARTH ONE, VOLUME 3. But why he’ll be coming after Kal from Krypton remains a mystery … for now.
