The tongue-in-cheek-named cousin of Nim- and Jor-El. He was very much depicted as the opposite of the young Jor-El, prone to being rude, failing to study, and playing mean-spirited practical jokes.
His exact parentage was never revealed. However he came to blemish the reputation of the House of El because he maintained an arsenal of forbidden weapons. For this crime, he was sent to the Phantom Zone for 35 years.
