    Default Kryptonian families

    Everyone know s Krypton had this feudal family affiliation system where everyone was a member of some house(major or minor) and bore the name of that house.

    The most famous is the House of El.

    What are the others? We can see their names since the various Kryptonians bear them. But how much do we know about their histories?

    Here's a few I can remember without looking them up:
    Dim < Nadira Va-Dim, one of Zod's associates came from here
    El < Superman
    Em < Dev-Em
    Rel < Az-Rel, team Zod
    Vex < Car-Vex, team Zod (among others)
    Zod < Dru-Zod the general infamous for the revolt in Krypton's last days came from here

    How many of them have actually been described in any real detail?

    There may be some relation between the house of Zee and the house of El since Van-Zee looked so similar to Kal-El. We know the house of Zee and the house of Var are related by marriage through the union of Van-Zee's niece Thara and his sidekick/lab assistant Ak-Var. Damn Bendis for killing off the Kandorians

    yeah, I know that wasn't all of them.

    Also in the Krypton tv series Kal-El(Superman)'s paternal grandmother is Nyssa-Vex. So the house of El is genetically connected to the house of Vex.

    "Quex-Ul was a Kryptonian exiled to the Phantom Zone when he was convicted of killing Rondors, an endangered species, to use their healing horns for the purposes of profit. At a trial presided over by Jor-El, he confessed to the crimes and was sentenced to a twenty-five year exile in the Phantom Zone. He was released by Superman when his time was up. Not a grateful sort, he attempted to lure Superman into a Gold Kryptonite trap, until Superman discovered that Quex-Ul actually acted under the mental control of Rog-Ar, the true Rondor killer. Learning this, Quex-Ul threw himself into the gold Kryptonite radiation to save the hero, losing his powers and memory.[1]

    He later came to work at the Daily Planet, believing himself to be a human name "Charlie Kweeskill", but regained his powers and memory after he and Superman were trapped in the Phantom Zone by escaping criminals. Together, Quex-Ul and Superman sought a way to escape and eventually encountering a malevolent entity called Aethyr. Selflessly, Quex-Ul sacrificed his life to save the Man of Steel by flying into Aethyr in a final act of redemption."

    Hm, well, that's a good summary of some stuff Quex-Ul did, but what do we know about the House of Ul? Or Ar for that matter.

    I'm sure there are a lot of houses known only by name, the idea here was to collect information about those that we know more about.
