So this version of Krypton, with super-people leaping about like crazed grasshoppers, disappeared.

It's two centuries ago, and Krypton is grim, totalitarian and sectarian. The El family is ostracized. Seg-El meets time-traveling Adam Strange (Shaun Sipos), who tells him he must make sure that his grandson, Kal-El/Clark Kent/Superman, is born. Does he save Krypton or let it be destroyed to save his future ...

I will start off by saying if you didn't like Man of Steel, you maybe possibly won't have a good time with SyFy's Krypton.
