Lor-Em (d. 1980) was a member of the Kryptonian Law Council who acted as its representative during the planet's final days.
Lor-Em was present when Jor-El warned the Council of Krypton's destruction, reminding them he was strictly against harvesting the core. Lor-Em reminded Jor-El that they had no other choice as the planet's natural resources had been exhausted.
Before Jor-El could request control of the Growth Codex, the Sword of Rao stormed the Legislation Chamber. In the chaos that followed, Lor-Em and the other members were taken in custody by Zod's second-in-command Faora.
Following the Battle of Krypton, the council members were released and Lor-Em replaced the late Ro-Zar as High Eminence. He was present when Dru-Zod and his surviving followers were sentenced to 300 cycles of "somatic reconditioning" for their crimes. When Zod expressed his disgust towards the Council, Lor-Em remained silent and watched as the insurgents were transported to the Phantom Zone.
Sometime later, Lor-Em died when Krypton's core imploded and the planet was destroyed.
Si Lor-Em hubiera ingresado en un sistema estelar con una estrella amarilla de la secuencia principal de tipo G, su cuerpo hubiera absorbido la energía solar y hubiese incrementado los poderes idénticos a los de Kal-El.
