Skal-Var tried to deflect a comet heading straight for Krypton, but the comet's electrical field caused the missiles to go awry. With no time to make another guidance system, he selflessly got into the missile and guided it manually, saving Krypton, but killing himself in the process.


He was an expert in rockets and missiles

  • This version of Skal-Var (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.
