Last Days of KyrptonBook - 2012
Before the cataclysm that sent the infant Kal El rocketing toward a remarkable future as Earth's indestructible protector, his home planet Krypton flourished. Before treachery, technology, and nature conspired to doom an unparallelled civilisation, the brilliant scientist Jor El and the beautiful artist and historian Lara met, fell in love, and married. There were great heroes in those halcyon days. And there were just as many villains: the evil android Brainiac, who planned to capture the capital city of Kandor; the diabolical General Zod, who used lies and chaos to seize power and usher in an era of cruelty, repression, and terror. And through it all, an inescapable violence loomed ever closer, a catastrophic destiny foretold by Jor El that would reshape humankind forever.
