Krypton – New Superman Tale
The story of Superman has been told too many times such that I for one was tired of it, it became too predictable. First time I heard of Krypton the moment they mentioned Superman story I was just put off, I thought it was another Smallville.
It wasn’t until I accidentally watched the trailer online when I got convinced that these guys may be on to something interesting. Of all the Superman stories told this is a refreshing one, told from a different angle. The story focuses on the life of his grandfather and trials and tribulations of the house of Erl.
Years before the destruction of the legendary Man of Steel’s home planet, Superman’s grandfather, Seg-El, fights to redeem his family’s honor after the House of El is ostracized and shamed over Seg’s grandfather’s false claims of a world-killer coming to Krypton.
When an attack on the government is attempted, Seg seizes an opportunity to advance himself and his family by allying with those who sentenced his grandfather to execution and destroyed his family’s name but when evidence that his grandfather’s claims were true is discovered, Seg must work within the system that discarded the House of El in order to protect their future legacy.
Since watching the first episode I can’t get enough of this series. Check out the trailer below.
