What’s New in the New 52: Krypton Returns

Posted on September 14, 2013 at 6:20 am by Tyler Waterman

Beginning in Action Comics Annual #2, The Super-family returns to Krypton, but the circumstances around that aren’t what you may expect.

Eschewing the tired “somehow Krypton is resurrected” angle that has been used countless times before, this time Superman, Superboy and Supergirl find themselves pulled through time to a Krypton of the past. However, this isn’t the joyous return they may have hoped for. This Krypton is crushed under the heel of H’el, littered with concentration camps for those who would oppose him, and embattled by a rebellion led by none other than Faora. In order to escape this past, each of the Supers have to enter a different portal, jetting them to an separate time and a separate fight all their own.

Admittedly, I’m pretty tired of Krypton-related stories when it comes to Superman, but this sounds unique, and is also a second chance to make H’el the badass Superman villain he should be. I’m on board; let us know below if you are too, and check out these preview images below!
