Daxam is a planet that was once used as a colonial outpost by the Kryptonian race.
When the Kryptonians began establishing colonial outposts on other worlds, Daxam was one of the planets chosen due to its proximity to a Red Sun.
Settlers landed on the planet and used a World Engine to terraform the planet's environment to their needs. Sometime later, the outposts were abandoned and Daxam's inhabitants quickly perished after running out of resources.
Shortly after Krypton was destroyed, the surviving members of the Sword of Rao came across what was once Daxam, took what they could find and set out to locate a planet they could turn into a new Krypton.
- In the comics, Daxam and its inhabitants are the descendants of Kryptonian colonists.
