Powers and Abilities

Faora Hu-Ul is a Kryptonian martial arts master. As such she enjoys, besides her great skill in unarmed combat and acrobatic prowess, nearly godlike powers under a yellow sun.

Her powers include:

  • Super strength.
  • Invulnerability.
  • Superspeed.
  • Super sight.
  • Super hearing.
  • Heat vision.
  • Flight.

For some reason she also can create bolts of mental force, and paralyze Kryptonians through touch or these mental bolts.

Being a Kryptonian, a member of a highly advanced race, she also possesses expert knowledge in technology.

As a misanthropic psychopath she is very good at scaring and intimidating her foes. She will often taunt and threaten them extensively in combat. As with any Kryptonian her only weaknesses are magic, kryptonite and lack of yellow sun radiation. But her hatred of men might also be used against her.



Faora Hu-Ul is a Kryptonian master of Horu-Kanu, the deadliest martial art form on Krypton. Faora was sentenced for a long time in the prison dimension the Phantom Zone after being captured for having kept a concentration camp in which she had tortured and killed 23 men.

When the planet exploded it looked like the zoners would be stuck there forever. But eventually they found their way to Earth. The zoners can still see our reality although they cannot affect it.

Earth’s greatest hero was Kal-El, there called Superman. He was the son of Jor-El, the man who had sent them all to the zone. The zoners sought revenge against Superman and wanted to rule or destroy the Earth too.

On many occasions the zoners, including Faora, and under General Dru-Zod’s command escaped to the Earth dimension . Yet each time stopped by Superman and sent back to the Phantom Zone.

Faora remains one of the most dangerous and psychotic inhabitants of the zone planning for her next escape.


Faora wears a green Kryptonian full bodysuit. It covers everything except her arms and head and has some brown and other colors onto it. Faora herself has a brownish hair and brown eyes.

She is slenderly and quite muscularly built and it’s clear that she has extensive physical training behind her. She moves in a dextrous manner and combines acrobatics and martial arts into a very deadly combination in combat.

Faora is often seen gloating or threatening people.


Faora is a dangerous psychopath and sadist. For unknown reasons she also carries an extensive hatred for all men.

She seems to be able to work together with evil men, such as Zod, to attain even larger destruction that what she could do alone. The two of them even joke about who is the cruelest on different occasions. She will not immediately attack other team members, but might occasionally do so.

Heroic men are sough after victims. She will toy with them and torture them long before killing them (just like she did on Krypton). She follows General Zod’s lead without question and is not a leader type herself. She probably would agree on any plan that includes widespread death and destruction.

Usually there is lots of hatred in her voice when she speaks with people.


“Scream, Kal-El, scream !”
