Val-El was a member of Krypton's lowest caste following the House of El's ostracism, father of Ter-El, and the grandfather of Seg-El, later becoming the great-grandfather of Jor-El, and great-great-grandfather of Superman.

Roughly 200 years before the destruction of Krypton, Val-El tried, but failed, to warn the Kryptonian elite about an incoming ancient threat[1].

Powers and Abilities Edit

  • Kryptonian Physiology: As a Kryptonian, Val-El's bone structure is almost identical to that of a human. On a planet near a red class M main-sequence star, like his native Krypton with its sun Rao, Val-El had physical attributes nearly identical to those of humans. However, if he were to travel to a planet near a yellow G-type main-sequence star, like Earth, he would have gained many incredible superpowers, identical to those of his great-great-grandson Superman, which would have made Val-El also appear godlike.

  • Genius-level Intellect: Val-El, much like his great-grandson Jor-El, was extremely intelligent, being one of the few to understand the impending ancient threat that Krypton was up against, roughly 200 years before the planet's destruction, seeing that space exploration was but only a basic form of self-defense against it.
