SYFY’s Krypton aired its first episode Wednesday, and is
definitely more than just a superman series.
Years before the destruction of the Man of Steel’s home planet,Krypton, Superman’s grandfather, Seg-El, fights to regain his family’s honor after the House of El is excluded and shamed over Seg-El’s grandfather’s false claims of a world-killer coming to Krypton.
In this Episode, Seg-El finds out krypton is in danger of being destroyed so his future Grandson will never be born.
The episode is titled “Pilot”, we also get a tease of a Brainiac as the main antagonist, and how he is traveling back in time to destroy Krypton and therefore erasing the coming of Superman,Kal-El.
This is where Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos) comes into play as he travels to Krypton to warn Seg-El about Brainiac’s coming. Seg’s grandfather made claims of a world-killer coming to Krypton, His claims were not considered but instead he was accused of treason and they killed him and the House of El’s honor diminished. Seg did not want to go along witg the story, but after watching his parents murdered for this course, he becomes fully committed to keeping and protecting his family’s legacy.
