There Will Never Be A Superman – DC Comics Runs Prelude to Syfy's Krypton Season 2

Today's DC Comics titles contain a comic book prelude to the new season of Krypton on Syfy, starting in a week's time, with 'Light-Years From Home'. In the cliffhanger for season 1 last year, at the Fortress of Solitude, Seg-El trapped Brainiac in the Phantom Zone, but Brainiac pulls Seg in with him at the last second. Superman's cape is restored, but it now bears the Zod crest, and Dru-Zod destroys the Phantom Zone gateway to continue the new timeline. After a month, Zod had seized control of Kandor, and other Kryptonian city-states, as Val tries to repair the gateway. In an unknown location elsewhere, Doomsday escapes containment. And in the altered future, Adam sees a giant statue of Zod in the immobilized Earth city he is in…

What if Superman never existed? Set two generations before the destruction of Superman's home planet, KRYPTON follows Seg-El (Cameron Cuffe), the legendary Man of Steel's grandfather, as a young man who fights to save his home planet from destruction. Season 2 brings us back to a changed Kandor, locked in a battle over its freedom and its future. General Dru-Zod (Colin Salmon) is now in control. He's on a ruthless mission to rebuild Krypton according to his ideals and to secure its future by conquering the universe. Faced with a bleak outlook, our hero, Seg-El, attempts to unite a dispersed group of resisters in an effort to defeat Zod and restore hope to their beloved planet. Their chance at redemption is threatened however, by their opposing tactics, shifting alliances and conflicting moral boundaries – forcing each of them to individually determine how far they're willing to go in pursuit of a better tomorrow.

Here's the preview, beginning with Seg-El's fate…
