Dheronians are the natives of the harsh planet Dheron.
Their planet on an even war against their neighbor Krypton, they were visited by their enemies' defector Zod-El who gave them the means of finally destroy Krypton. Under his instructions, the Dheronians planted a series of probes under Krypton's core in order to prevent the planet's heat from fluctuating to the surface, initiating a chain reaction that lead to it's doom.
In exchange they gained interstellar travel technology for expanding themselves across the stars.
Powers and Abilities
Due to evolving under a red sun, Dheronians gain great power from the radiation of younger stars. Powers shown so far include:
- Solar Energy Absorption: The main source of their powers under a foreign star. When charged with the frequency of a yellow sun, they develop:
- Alternate Solar Radiation: Like Kryptonians, their powers are dependent upon radiation from a Yellow Sun. The energies emitted by other stars can have adverse affects on a Dheronian or their abilities.
- Red Sun Radiation: If exposed to the radiation of a star similar to their native one, Dheronians lose their superhuman abilities.
- Black Holes: Exposure to the conditions of a Black Hole would be fatal to a Dheronian.
Habitat: Dheron has been depicted as deserted and harsh.
Gravity: Presumably much stronger than on Earth.
Level of Technology:
High (Comparable to Krypton's).
