The Kryptonian Law Council or Council of Five were the democratic leaders of the planet Krypton before it's destruction. The members are made up from one selected individual from each of Krypton's Guilds.
During the last days of Krypton, General Zod military leader of the planet lost faith in the Council and their running of the planet believing them to have made Krypton's bloodlines weak.
Jor-El was in front of the Council telling them that Krypton would explode in mere days and that the planet must be evacuated. The council inform Jor-El that evacuation is impossible. Zod bursts in at this time and has Jor-El taken away before shooting a Council member and announcing his intended rule. Jor-El escapes and steals the Growth Codex taking Zod's attention away from the Council who send the Sapphire Guards to arrest him. Zod kills Jor-El and is arrested.
Zod and his followers including Faora, Nam-Ek, Jax-Ur and Tor-An are sentenced to 300 years reconditioning inside the Phantom Zone as the remaining Council members and Jor-El's wife, Lara, watch as they are put aboard Black Zero and taken to through the Phantom Zone Projector.
Krypton explodes as Jor-El predicted and everybody and everything on the planet perishes.
