On Krypton, Nor-Kann had been a friend and classmate to Jor-El. He was a resident of the city of Kandor, and was there when the city was abducted by Brainiac, so ending up in the Bottle City in Superman's Fortress of Solitude on Earth.

Nor-Kann was the sponsor and mentor to the city's heroes, Nightwing and Flamebird, who were, at first, Superman and Jimmy Olsen. Later the roles changed - on one occasion they were taken by Batman and Robin - but the main holders of the roles were Van-Zee and Ak-Var.

Nor-Kann saved Superman's life on at least three occasions. He died from an accidental exposure to a lethal dose of radiation.
