Angered, Rao stole a ship and eventually made it to Krypton. Not authorized for entry, his ship was attacked and left him with no engines drifting in the darkness of space. His ship was picked up by the nearby solar systems orbit, a system that contained a yellow star. Over the course of three years, he began absorbing energy from the sun and the resulting sunlight, revitalized his cells and unlocked his full potential.

After obtaining these abilities, Rao went back to Krypton and became their leader. His abilities made the people of Krypton view him as a god and this along with his strict demeanor, gave him complete control over his people.
