Synopsis for "The Death-Trails of Krypton!"

2000 years ago, a Kryptonian chemo-engineer named Dol-Nd discovered that he could create flying wings for himself by using a crystalline element he named Trolium, after Trolius, the mythological lord of Krypton's red skies. However, the Trolium created permanent green death-trails in the sky after his flight, which disintegrated any object that flew into them. After defeating a criminal who tried to steal the wings, Dol-Nd destroyed his invention, but the death-trails remained in the sky until Krypton's destruction.

Notes

  • "The Starry-Eyed Siren of Space!" is reprinted in The Best of DC #12.
  • The 'Young Valley' where Dol-Nd finds the Trolium is buried by the time "The Death-Trails of Krypton!" is told. This could explain why no other Kryptonian scientist discovered Trolium.
