During a meeting with Batman and Robin at his Fortress of Solitude, Superman gets the idea to load his Univac Computer with everything he knows about Krypton and ask it to computer what would have happened if Krypton never exploded. The machine came up with a alternate history in which Jor-El and Lara had a second son named Zal-El. Unfortunately, this imaginary brother to Kal-El would die tragically with Jor-El and Lara when a rocket they are flying in space crashed landed on a magnetic meteor and exploded. A monument to the dead family was later built by Futuro, a super-powered being that befriended Kal-El.
- This version of Zal-El (Earth-One), including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the Multiverse in the 1985-86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series and is now considered apocryphal.
