For the episode of the same name, see House of El.

"As long as there is an El on Krypton, there will be hope. And hope… can be a powerful weapon."Val-El's hologram
The House of El is a family residing on Krypton. Many of its members have been a part of the Science Guild.

History Edit

According to Val-El, any who are brought into their family and adopt the El name are given the first name of one of their ancestors. This was the practice for when Cor-Vex was to be given the El name. He was given the name of his great-great grandfather and christened Jor-El.

The House of El accomplished a great number of things, such as Tharb-El finding a cure for the Green Death, ultimately saving the Kryptonian race.[1] Following Val-El claiming there to be life beyond Krypton, against the religious practices of the state, the Voice of Rao stripped the House of El of their rank.[2]
