A bit of speculation on my part.

The Third Kryptonian is from one of the 52 Earths, and is a female version of Superman.


How about a female version of SuperBOY?

Here's what I posted on another message board regarding the same question:

---------------------------

On another thread covering this very same question, one poster suggested it was Supergrrrl , who appeared in the "Hyper-Tension!" arc of Superboy (Issues #60-65). This could be a real possibility for a couple reasons.

First, Supergrrrl comes from the Elseworld's Finest: Supergirl and Batgirl universe. This alternate Earth has proven popular with fans (DC Direct made figures of both Kara and Babs), and it's likely to be one of the 52.

At the conclusion of "Hyper-Tension!", all the Superboys were returned to their native worlds. But it's certainly possible that some got sidetracked, and there was only one female "Superboy". Perhaps Supergrrrl's uniqueness caused problems on the way home? After all, she's not a clone of Kal-El (or a younger Kal-El), but a clone of Kara Zor-El...

Oh, dear -- I just realized this. We already have TWO Karas (Power Girl and the new Supergirl). Add the clone of an Elseworld's Kara Zor-El, and we'll have THREE counterparts of the SAME person inhabiting ONE universe! No wonder the Third Kryptonian has got to go!  Shocked

You can see Supergrrrl's debut here:

(Frankly, she STILL looks better in that jacket than Kon-El ever did!)   Wink

If Superman, Supergirl, Chris Kent and Krypto all come from Krypton, how is it that this new character is referred to as the third Kryptonian?

Chris Kent and Zoners were in the Phantom Zone during the Auctioneer's arc. I'm not sure how Krypto fits. Perhaps, he isn't from New Earth or maybe not on New Earth at the time.  Huh?
