Speaking of nationality, why are there no black, hispanic or asian kryptonians?

Uhm... realistically speaking.. it is unlikely Krypton diversified in race in the same way we did. They are also so advanced that it is likely any and all races have interbred so much that there is now one homogeneous race on Krypton, much like is proposed to happen on earth in the not to distant future when more races start interbreeding.

With that said, there are black Kryptonians in the comics...they just aren't that prominently displayed. You see them in the latest comics on New Krypton.


As for the Mediterranean look... I think classically it is described as someone with golden or tanned or olive colored skin with dark hair (usually curly or wavy) and light exotic looking eyes (green, light brown, or blue). It's in the features too... voluptuous features in women, chiseled look in men. Not all are necessary to make you mediterranean looking..but they are classical features.
A good example for a mediterranean looking female is Italian singer Anna Tatangelo.

no. It never made sense how out of the entire population of this "highly advanced and technological" civilization, only 1 made it out.

They don't have to explore any other survivors like Kandorians or Kara, just like Nolan doesn't want to bring in any partners for his Batman, but to categorically dismiss them as not existing at all is myopic IMO

If that were the case, they certainly wouldn't look exclusively Anglo-Saxon. Best to not delve into the subject too much and let it be.

How is it myopic? The Kryptonians basically felt they were infallible amidst a crisis and that was the death of them.

Given that star-travel was possible, and that the tech was so common that a lone individual, Jor-el, could launch a ship; the concept that some Kryptonians, at least, were not off world is a bit narrow-minded.

I've always liked the idea that the Kryptonians...while capable of interstellar travel...didn't believe they NEEDED to go offworld. They weren't parasites, they thought they could perfect their own homeworld.

Perhaps.....but how does a society develop the technology to travel the galaxy without the desire to travel the galaxy? First comes the dream then the reality?

A thought........
If Kal-el was launched into the galaxial abyss solely to escape certain death, but his course and eventual arrival on Earth, a planet unknown to Kryptonian science, were left purely to chance, and not a grand scheme of Jor-el's; then it is reasonable to assume given the vastness of space; that even though Kryptonians were off world, or managed a desperate escape, at the moment of Krypton's destruction they would never, or at best very rarely, encounter Earth or Superman

Kryptonians did travel the galaxy, but they tended to come back rather than live off-world.

I want Zod surviving because of his imprisonment in the Phantom Zone & of course Doomsday..

Brainiac.. well I'd want him to survive if hes shown to be of Kryptonian origin but I kinda like the idea that hes not from Krypton persay, but played a substantial part in its destruction..

Bottom line I think Kal-El should be the only known survivor who was on Krypton near the time of its destruction..

What motivated that? The expenditure of the resources necessary to span a galaxy would not lend the activity solely to Sunday drives? It makes no sense.

I prefer John Byrne's version of Krypton, where Kryptonians had the necessary technological advances to build instellar ships, but they stopped doing it, essentially, because the rest of the galaxy was stupid in comparison to them. There was nothing they could gain from interstellar travel, except a dumbing down of their own society. They were at the epitome, or so they reasoned, of civilization, and as such, weren't going to let lesser cultures influence the Kryponian way of life.

Not to mention Jor-El's ancestor introduced a genetic anomoly to the kryptonian genome, so that Kryptonians were physically dependent on the planet Krypton for survival. They couldn't live off world. Only Kal-El, when Jor-El found the flaw, could have it removed.

Yea i wouldnt mind it going they are the super advance race and all that. They did travel the stars and that helped them learn about the universe. But after season how evil and dark the universe is they decided to stay on their planet and not get invovled with the crap going on around the universe. Like dont get invovled with the Thanngians(spelling?), Darkseid's world-New Genesis, and other countless space species in the dc comics i dont really know of. Or they could say space travel was just banned for some reason.

I to would like it to be kal-el as the real sol survivor of krypton's desctruction, but leave hints out there that zod, doomsday, brainiac are out there. Then also maybe the kara-zor-el supergirl. But how to go about her coming to earth i would have to think about it more.

Young Superman nailed it.

Basically, they don't NEED to explore anymore.

That would nicely explain no off world presence at the time of Krypton's destruction, but wouldn't such total isolationism require a totalatarian authority (ala Big Brother) to prevent anyone from diverging from that policy. A world somewhat ill-fitting to the commonly accepted Kryptonian utopia. Certainly the genetic anomoly, that sentences any wanderlust to a death sentence, fits that criteria .

well it should be interesting to see what any future writers decide upon for krypton's back story.
