Origins:
 
In the House of El family tree, Kru-El was the son of Zim-El, which made him the cousin of Superman's father, Jor-El. At an early age, Kru-El was technologically adept, but a cruel child. He used his inventions to torment his more studious cousin Jor-El.
As the cousins grew older, both were focused on their work - Jor-El on helping Kryptonians survive the coming cataclysm, while Kru-El built diabolical weapons and supplied them to the criminal element. The two lives would again intersect when Jor-El himself joined the Science Police to bring down Kru-El, and personally exiled him into the Phantom Zone.
