No Orange or Purple K yet.  But, we'll see what comes up.


Were those types in SUPERMAN/BATMAN # 6, am I right?

I apologize if this question has been asked to death, but I tried the Search function and didn't really come up with what I was looking for.

How did Kryptonite get to Earth?  It seems like an awfully long way away for fragments of Krypton to tumble through space at sub-light speeds...

I assume there are probably as many answers to this as there are Superman series, graphic novels, Otherworlds books, animated and live-action television series, and movies.  Still, I'd love to hear a consensus on this question from the people who know the comics.


Pre-Crisis it was stated in Action #500 that the warp-drive Jor-El developed was flawed and created a sort of 'space-warp' between Earth and Krypton through which Krytonite and about everything Jor-El had shot up into space had been pulled through.

Post-Crisis where was originally one piece of Krytonite which caught ont he tail of the rocket. Then Luthor developed a way manufacture the stuff but artifical K didn't seem as effective as the real stuff. Then Batman fiddled with the piece Superman gave him and came up with Red K which turned Superman's skin transparent and sent his powers throught he roof to the point he could not really do anything. Now we have multicolored K again. Hopefully not with the same powers as before.

Please not multicolored K again.  It's not the trappings of the silver age that made it fun but the spirit IMO.
