The pod was used by Kara Zor-El to escape the dying planet of Krypton, its coordinates being interlocked with Kal-El's pod. The pod was later knocked off-course into the Phantom Zone due to a shockwave caused by Krypton's destruction. After being stuck there in stasis for 24 years, Indigo sensed the pod and used her powers to re-activate its engines, causing Kara to awaken. The pod then escaped the Phantom Zone, dragging Fort Rozz along with it. It crash-landed on Earth, where it was discovered by Superman. The pod was later taken by the D.E.O., who stored it in their base.
After releasing a trace amount of lead into the Earth's atmosphere to fight off the Daxamite invasion, Kara sent Mon-El into space in this pod. The pod soon entered a wormhole, bringing Mon-El to the 31st century.
