The Super-Dog from Krypton! - Clark Kent finds a dog that has powers just like his own. Superboy found the dog in a rocket, along with written records, proving the dog was Krypto, his canine companion from when he was a baby. Superman's father Jor-El had used the dog as a test passenger when experimenting with escape rockets as teh destruction of Krypton approached. Although Krypto set off before Jor-El dispatched Superboy, his rocket wandered off course, so he arrived on earth when Superboy was already a teenager. Arriving on earth, Krypto acquired super powers. His abilities included; flight, super strength, invincibility, and X-ray vision, were similar to Superman's but weaker as they were proportionate to a dog's body. Krypto acquired a cover for his secret identity by dying a patch of his all-white fur brown to disguise him as Skip, the Kents' family dog. To turn back he could burn off the dye with heat vision.
