Ka-Do was the Drygur of the Kryptonian Science Council just prior to Krypton's destruction. As the Drygur Molium, his duty was to uphold the policies and protocols of Krypton, even when such bureaucracy causes no action to be taken, as was the case with saving everyone on Krypton.

He was outraged by Jor-El's proposal to build Space Arks since space travel is illegal by Kryptonian law.

He had even considered giving Jor-El charges of treason. This was discussed with the other councilmembers. They had all agreed to have Jor-El removed as Krypton's Astro-Scientist.

Ultimately when Krypton was about to be destroyed, he realized that Jor-El was right all along, but it was far too late. His lack of action brought forth his death, and the death of billions of other Kryptonians.[2]

Powers and Abilities

Super Powers

Ka-Do possessed no superhuman abilities, however, if he were to be in a solar system with a yellow star, he would gain the following powers:


  • Science: Ka-Do was head of the Science Council, so he obviously had some knowledge about science. However he must have not been as smart on the subject of geology, as he didn't believe Jor-El's geological findings about how Krypton was unstable.
  • Leadership: Ka-Do took the lead in the Council, and as a strong leader, other council members were afraid to object to what he said.
  • Intimidation: Ka-Do threatened to charge Jor-El with treason. And other members of the council were every intimidated by Ka-Do, for fear of being thrown off the council.
