Brenn-Bir src

Brenn-Bir was the leader of a gang of kids on Kandor, without a lot of concern for others, who dared a young Ak-Var to steal a Sun-Stone. While Ak-Var was sentenced to the Phantom Zone, Brenn-Bir was not punished until decades later when he stole the Sun-Stone again.

On pre-cataclysm Krypton, Brenn-Bir lead a gang composed of Kyl-Ibo and Vas-Quor. They decided it would be funny to dare Ak-Var to steal a sacred Sun-Stone while they waited outside in a flier; but at the first sign of trouble they turned and left Ak-Var there.[1]

Ak-Var was sentenced to 20 to 30 years[2] in the Phantom Zone, but still did not expose Brenn's role in the theft. After which time, Brainiac abducted Kandor, and Brenn-Bir with it. Brenn lived an unremarkable Kandorian life until Ak-Var was paroled from the Zone and returned to Kandor.

Ak-Var had touched Red Kryptonite when he was briefly free on Earth, and accidentally bequeathed powers to Brenn-Bir and his two cohorts. Despite Ak-Var covering up Brenn's role in the Sun-Stone theft, and the fact that Ak gave Brenn-Bir superpowers -- Brenn and his gang showed no gratitude, and stole the Sun-stone a second time. Again, they framed Ak-Var for it and attempted to send Superman himself to the Phantom Zone. Superman and Ak-Var succeeded in exposing Brenn, and Brenn-Bir was sentenced to the Phantom Zone,[1] until Kandor was restored on Planet Rokyn.

Once Brenn-Bir was freed from the Zone, he chose to become part of the group of workers restoring Kandor's glory; where he publicly apologized to Superman and Ak-Var for what what they had done earlier.[3]


Flight: Brenn-Bir is able to manipulate graviton particles to defy the forces of gravity and achieve flight. This ranges from hovering to moving in any posture, in any direction. Brenn's power only lasted two days, as he gained it as a result of Ak-Var's exposure to Red Kryptonite.[4]
