Powerpuff Girls Doujishi
Zim took part in an invasion of Earth which was stymed by global defense. Yet Zim went through with it for his own reasons but ended up getting caught and imprisoned on their base in Antarctica. There he gets locked up in a cage, separated from his PAK. His cellmate is Killgore with whom he gets into massive discussions about their conquering skills. it is not until Samantha arrives on orders of Dr. X to retrieve Zim.
Zim does not want to go with her and says he will kill her instead, insulting her puny human nature. Samantha shows she is no ordinary human and frees Zim. Samantha hacks his PAK which he then tries to use to kill Samantha, only to get electrocuted by it. He complies with Samantha's orders but takes Killgore along with him for experimentation. When arriving at Black Eden he sees it in ruins. Dr. X reveals his new chemical X form and uses it to erase the minds of Zim and Killgore, enlisting fear in him in the process.
After some time Zim starts experimenting on Killgore as he eventually manages to get into contact with the Cluster and thus Vexus. This makes Dr. X able to form a pact with the robot queen for their further plans of isolating Earth from the galaxy. Zim continues to work in Black Eden, mostly doing maintenance on Samantha when needed as well as providing GIR as a playmate for Bell.
When Mojo Jojo joins the Black Eden he first meets Zim, believing him to be in control, only to discover that Zim is simply has become Dr. X's maid. Zim does chores for Xander, as well as keep him company, as his services aren't needed at the very moment. He appeared when he was playing on the Playstation with Dr. X. This gaming session led Dr. X to tell Zim the miserable past of Mandark Astronomonov up until his death at the hands of Dexter.
After Mojo's arrival the two seem to be spending most of their time together, arguing with each other just like he did previously with Killgore. He was present with Dr. X when the bomb on Earth went off, the Irken wondering what the bomb exactly would do. After Bell finished her conversation with Naga, Zim and Mojo called her to come back home.

Invader Zim: Manifest Doom
Zim is the protago-antagonist of the comic.Invader Zim: Manifest Doom
Zim and the rest of the Irkens seem to be based off the typical "little green men from outer space" stereotype. Many Irkens are about the size of a elementary school child (with a few exceptions), with Zim being exceptionally short. In The Nightmare Begins, Zim is shown as being even shorter than the notoriously short Invader Skoodge. Almighty Tallest Purple tells him that "no Invader has ever been so... very small".
Zim, like most of the Irken race, has ruby-colored eyes. It's mentioned in Walk of Doom as well that Zim's eyes contain ocular implants ("Ocular implants are standard Invader issue"). Since the eyes he was born with aren't visibly different from subsequent appearances, it can be assumed that these implants are subcutaneous.
He also possesses a pair of antennae. Their exact function is unknown, but they seem to function like human eyebrows; rising and lowering to convey emotion. It is strongly implied that they function like ears, and even pick up vibrations in Battle of the Planets.
Power & Abilities
Zim, like all Irkens, was fused at birth with a mechanical device called a PAK. Zim's PAK provides him with life support, all the necessary nutrients for survival, and an array of different weapons and tools. These tools include: a set of four spider-like mechanical legs, an organ harvester, scanner pads, hand-held communicators, memory drive, charging cell, atmospheric processor, high tech infrared/nightvision binoculars, holographic transmitters, and four rocket boosters, as well as a sort of biomechanical rebreather mask used in no air or bad air environments. It can be used to "reactivate" an Irken after a sudden shock to the system
Zim is a member of the alien Irken race. As Zim is severely emotionally unstable, he is considered defective. Zim, on the other hand, believes that he is a mighty warrior. Since his actions usually lead to disaster (he nearly destroyed the Irken homeworld during Operation Impending Doom I) his leaders, the Almighty Tallest, sent him to Foodcourtia as a sort of banishment. While there, however, Zim heard about Operation Impending Doom II, and (obviously not understanding the purpose of his previous exile) "quit being banished" and returned to Conventia in the hopes of getting an assignment. Chagrined, the Almighty Tallest sent him on a "secret mission" to Earth (though they did not know of the planet at the time), in order to keep him away from Operation Impending Doom II.
After arriving on Earth, Zim enrolls in the nearest elementary skool to begin his infiltration and becomes quick rivals with Dib, an avid preteen paranormal investigator. Zim wants to conquer the Earth, mostly to prove his superiority and impress his leaders. However, as mentioned by Gaz in the episode Gaz, Taster of Pork, "He's so bad at it."
Although he is the protagonist of a children's show, Zim is, morally and ethically, a villain (though occasionally considered an antihero), being overall a fairly unsympathetic character, though he occasionally shows some kindness towards certain characters such as GIR in Walk of Doom, and usually only causing chaos and destruction for either himself, his own race or Earth. His unawareness of his actions are most likely the result of him being a defect, as revealed in the cancelled episode The Trial.
- It is not exactly known if the events of Invader Zim have happened in the comic as well. It could be that Dib eventually caught Zim and handed him over to global defenses, leading to his imprisonment but it is not even known if Dib and Zim know each other in the comic.
