On the planet Krypton, Krypto is the pet dog of Jor-El and his family. The white puppy, unfortunately, died in the planet's implosion after Kal-El was sent to Earth. However, it lives on in Jor-El's message to his son. Decades later, Mongul discovered the Fortress of Solitude and infected Superman with the Black Mercy. For a week, Superman lived in a fantasy-inspired Krypton. His son, Van, wanted a pet dog of his own. Kal-El agreed on the condition that Van would be responsible and take care of it. Van agreed and named his dog, Krypto.
