Now, Child of Light... Despair! Not even the Gods could destroy me... and I was always worshiped by mortals in the dark! With your death, the final trace of the Gods of Dawn will be extinguished!
~ Cythonna as she pummels Superman


Cythonna was Krypton's goddess of ice and darkness who engaged in battle with Krypton's Sun God, Rao, eons ago before being sealed in a void as part of a last-ditch effort to defeat her. However, countless years later, she escaped her prison and discovered that she was Krypton's last remaining goddess and that Krypton itself had been destroyed. Seeking to bring Rao under her thumb in some shape or form, she attempted to force Superman to be her slave and toy, easily overcoming him in every contest of physical might and use of ice and wind. She was only defeated after the Man of Steel lured her into Earth's Sun, upon which the light and heat the star emitted managed to weaken her to a point that a newly rejuvenated Superman could push her into the sun's core, where its gravitational energy prevented her from breaking free. There she remains, cursing the last descendant of Rao for eternity.
