Their original world exploded, like Krypton. However, Kirk escaped with his parents in a rocket. Landing on the planet Trombus, gaining Kryptonian-like hyper-powers under its red sun. Planning a career as 'The Hyper-Family', his family devised a means of testing the feasibility of fighting crime.
The Quentin family appeared in Smallville on Earth. Disguising a robot as Superboy, they hypnotized him into switching costumes. They hypnotized the Kents into believing that "Clark" (the robot) had no powers, while they saw the real Clark as "Kirk Quentin". At the end, they concluded it was feasible to carry on back on Trombus. Their son, Kirk, had remained there to continue as Hyperboy.
- This version of Hyper-Family, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
- Have a hyper-dog named Klypso.
