Ak-Var was one of the few Phantom Zone criminals to be released and not return to a life of crime. Freed by Superman, he went to live in the Bottle City of Kandor. There he took on the role of superhero 'Flamebird' when Van-Zee (Pre-Crisis) adopted the role of 'Nightwing'; the heroes created by Superman and Jimmy Olsen (Pre-Crisis) under the guidance of Nor-Kann.
