El Gar Kur was a criminal who lived in the bottled city of Kandor. In 1959, El Gar-Kur escaped from Kandor and switched places with Jimmy Olsen, imprisoning Jimmy inside the bottle city. Gaining super-powers under a yellow sun, he sought to destroy Earth's champion, Superman. El Gar Kur was soon defeated and taken back to prison.

  • This version of El Gar Kur (Earth-One), including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
