The House of El Citadel was the residence of Jor-El and Lara Lor-Van, where Lara gave birth to their son, Kal-El.


Jor-El, Lara and Kal-El on Krypton

Jor-El and Lara's final moments with their son

When Jor-El realized Krypton was headed for destruction he built a ship in the citadel, which was intended to carry his unborn son away from the doomed planet. Jor-El later assisted Lara in giving birth to their son, Kal-El.

After Jor-El stole Krypton's growth codex, he quickly hurried back to the citadel to say his final goodbyes to Kal-El. He and Lara watched as his ship was successfully launched, however General Dru-Zod and his followers closed in on the citadel firing multiple plasma carbines at the main door. When Zod and his followers entered, he and Jor-El battled until Zod stabbed and killed Jor-El.[1]


After the Battle of Krypton against General Zod and the Sword of Rao, Lara watched from her home as Krypton imploded. The citadel was destroyed along with the planet.[1]
