When a youthful criminal and his dog gain the powers of Green Kryptonite radiation from passing through a green space-cloud, they come to Earth and endanger Superboy and Krypto with their radiation and their abilities to transform anything they touch into Kryptonite.

Synopsis for "The Invasion of Krypton!"

Superboy once again uses his Total Recall and mind-prober ray to remember another episode of his childhood on Krypton. This time, he remembers how, when he and Krypto were treated with Jor-El's anti-gravity ray, they used their resultant powers to defeat an alien invasion force.

Notes

  • In The Invasion of Krypton, Jor-El reveals that he is using the last of his supply of Vaxxium to power the Anti-Gravity Ray. Kal's age indicates that they are in Krypton's final days, and thus Jor-El's discovery of Anti-Gravity itself; the Anti-Gravity belts; and his Golden Folly in Superman #233 preceded this issue chronologically.

Trivia
