Sending a baby in a rocket to Earth was not Jor-El's first
idea to preserve the doomed planet Krypton... Welcome to Infinite
City, a place beyond imagination, where futuristic technology

can't even begin to imagine how they pitched this story to
their publisher, nor how they got the green light to run with
