Van-Zee is a Kryptonian vigilante who operated as the original Nightwing. His partner Ak-Var was the vigilante Flamebird. He possesses no super-powers in his natural state, but he is an excellent hand-to-hand combatant. He is one of many residents of the Bottle City of Kandor who survived the destruction of Krypton. This has lead him to have several encounters with his distant relative Superman. Van-Zee was created by Edmond Hamilton and Mort Weisinger, first appearing in Superman's Girl Friend, Lois Lane #15.
