Becoming the last of his House after his parents' execution by Krypton's court, Val quickly made friends with fellow orphan Kara Zor-El. Moments before Krypton's destruction, Val, Kara, Kal-El and another child managed to escape and survive their planet's destruction thanks to Jor-El and Lara.
Through his trip, Val was educated by his parents' knowledge recorded on his capsule, teaching him that violence was a dumb way to overcome issues, driving him to become a pacifist man.
Falling on Earth, he was found by Terry Sloan who offered him asylum to "protect" him from the outside world, becoming a recluse. While the time he was captured, he helped Sloan developing the Firepits.
