To me, its just an example that doesn't destroy continuity, it just forces more in than is good - it diminishes an earlier story (rather than saying it wasn't true).

If there was one thing I didn't like about the times was that too much was being crammed into the past, a rush for "untold stories" that got a little tedious.  There was once a Superbaby story that told of criminals who adopted baby Kal before the Kents had time to get back to the orphanage.  The criminals planned to substitute Superbaby for a look-alike millionaire's child that they wanted to hold for ransom. Even though I was just a kid, I thought it was dumb to play an adventure into every undocumented second of a baby's life.

There's a difference between making the mythos deeper by exploring Krypton in more depth and plotting new fantastic details behind every story that was told before, especially when the older stories were good before.

I'd tend to agree.  Of course, the DC editors perceived just such an attitude (cynicism about retcons/convoluted continuity) among their readers, leading to Crisis.

Didn't Kirby create the Black Zero's ultimate nemesis, the White Zero?

It beats the name White One, I suppose.
