A lot of buzz has been building for SYFY’s new show, Krypton which is set 200 years before baby Superman escapes the planet’s destruction. Other than the story revolving around Seg-El, Superman’s grandfather, not much else is known about the plot of the show itself – until now! We have obtained a copy of the episode descriptions and they give us the first real taste of what is in store for the Man of Steel’s ancestors.
