Van-Zee was a native of the bottle city of Kandor. He was related to Superman and, as he closely resembled him, occasionally acted as his double to protect his secret identity.

He married an Earthwoman, Sylvia Dewitt who resembled Lois Lane. He found a way to give her super-powers, and they went to live in Kandor. They had two children, Lili and Lyle.

Van-Zee sometimes acted as Nightwing, one of Kandor's superhero team 'Nightwing and Flamebird', first created by Superman and Jimmy Olsen under the guidance of Nor-Kann.
