Meeting Kal-El (again)

When an adult Kal-El was trapped in the Phantom Zone, Krypto was able to smell Superman and eventually reunited with him.

Adventures with Superboy

At some point after their encounter with H'el, Superman intrusted Superboy to take care of Krypto. Learning a lesson after his battle with H'el, Superboy would also return the millions he stole from the bank. While fighting a villain, Superboy was tricked by Doctor Psycho. Superboy would also defeat a H.I.V.E. villain with his help. Superboy also assisted a girl who was manifesting a monster with her mind. He was tricked into destroying a school thinking that a villain was teleporting around. Superboy finally snapped out of his trance after he used a phone camera to realize that there was actually no villain there after all. The "villain" turned out just to be a manifestation of his Superboy's fears created by the Psycho Pirate. Even with all his power, Superboy could not defeat him. Superboy was badly beaten and all his telekinetic senses were temporarily stolen from him.[3]

Alongside the Superman Family again

After Superman was infected by the Doomsday virus from killing Doomsday, he went into hiding in Alaska where he reunited with Krypto. However, Superman ran into some poachers who were attacking a nearby wolf. Losing his calm because of the virus, Superman destroyed their plane while sparing their lives. Superman then attempted to enter the Fortress of Solitude but it didn't allow him to get in because the virus altered his DNA, and when Krypto growls at him because of the change, Superman decides to return to Metropolis.[4]

Krypto then stayed in the Arctic until Batman, Wonder Woman and Steel came to the Fortress to find a cure for Superman. Following Doomsday's trail, Krypto entered an unstable Phantom Zone. After a confrontation with Xa-Du, who claimed there wasn't a cure, the team exites the Phantom Zone alongside Xa-Du.[5]

Accompanying Supergirl

Krypto accompanied Supergirl when she traveled to the remains of Krypton.
