The Eradicator is one of the four "successors" who appeared after the supposed death of Superman by defeating Doomsday. A Kryptonian AI, he is programmed to stop crime and protect Kal-El, even with excessive force. He created the Fortress of Solitude as a means to revive Kal-El, returning to the Fortress to charge his body with ion rays to accelerate Kal-El's recovery.

Powers and abilities
- Superhuman Strength: The Eradicator possesses super strength on par with Hank Henshaw.
- Superhuman speed: He can move at high speeds similarly to Kryptonians.
- Flight: He can hover and fly at super-sonic speeds.
- Ion Radiation Generation: He can generate ion radiation, which he used to revive and speed up Kal-El's recovery.
- Energy Blasts: He can shoot bolts of yellow energy from his hands which was capable of blasting through concrete with ease. However, these energy attacks could also be non-lethal, as they merely shocked Mercy Graves into unconsciousness
- Holographic Constitution: He is an advanced program that can project himself as a hard-light hologram as he is usually seen, but he can also be stored as a program within a small Kryptonian crystal. In this form, when the crystal punctures Henshaw's skull, the Eradicator is able to delete his consciousness in the cyborg body, effectively killing him.
- Nigh-Invulnerability: As a holographic construct based with power levels similar to that of a Kryptonian, he never shows any sign of visible damage from any hit, despite being shown to feel at least some discomfort.
- Being a Kryptonian program, Eradicator delivers justice in the more heavy-handed manner, as Krypton (in most depictions) has very swift and decisive justice. This is the primary reason he has no regard for the human laws while "filling in' for Kal-El.
- He serves as the "wild card" for Superman, who would not usually take a life himself.
- He was described as "Spock on steroids" by Jay Oliva for his emotional detachment and superpowers.
- His Superman logo is similar to Man Of Steel
