The Eradicator is the given name of four different fictional comic book characters, appearing in books published by DC Comics. The first iteration was an antihero character appearing in the Flash series of comics. The second was a superhero (and sometimes supervillain) having a recurring role in Superman stories, and the remaining two first appeared in 2013 and 2017, respectively. The first Superman Eradicator was originally created as a weapon by the Kryptonians over 200,000 years ago. The Flash Eradicator was created by Carmine Infantino and Cary Bates and first appeared in The Flash #314. The first Superman character was created by writer Roger Stern, and first appeared in Action Comics Annual #2 (1989).

Krypton - Other versions - Netflix

In a 2001–2002 storyline, Superman visited a version of Krypton which resembles the Silver Age version of the planet. However, unlike the Silver Age incarnation of the planet, this version includes “Eradicator assassins”, giant robots used by General Zod and the Science Council as part of “the Eradicator solution”, and later by Jor-El against Kryptonian religious zealots. Superman eventually discovered that this version of Krypton had been created as a trap for him by the villainous Brainiac 13, using the Eradicator Matrix, which he had stolen from the true Krypton along with Jor-El's diaries. The Eradicator Matrix is described as having been “designed to save Krypton by transforming a nearby husk of a planet into a habitable paradise”; Brainiac 13 uses it to transform a planet in the Phantom Zone into a replica of Krypton based on Jor-El's favorite period in Kryptonian history, and its inhabitants into Kryptonians. In Action Comics #850, a flashback shows Jor-El muttering about “damned Eradicators” while preparing to send Kal-El into space.
