Oh yeah, and it’s set 2 generations before Kal-El is born. Today we got the trailer for Krypton and we have to ask the question: why? The series is set to cover the life and times of Superman’s grandfather, a character people were just dying to know about (sarcasm, intended.)
Of course, the powers that Superman has on Earth are largely due to the effect of the sun’s rays and Earths’ gravity, which means the Kryptonians on Krypton are essentially no more powered than the average earthling. Are we sensing another Caprica-type bomb for SyFy? David Goyer is behind this, so we’d hope not, but we’ll have to wait and see, when it premieres later this year.
