K is for Krypto: #AtoZchallenge

This blog post simultaneously serves two purposes: it answers the question of who I chose for today’s Fictional Favorite, and it asks the question, “Who’s a good boy?”

Krypto first appeared in 1955. Long lost Krytponian pet of Kal-El, he became the companion of Superboy (Clark Kent vintage). For a(n admittedly superpowered) dog, he had some serious reasoning skills.

He even had his own Super Team.

I see Beppo and Comet and Streaky…

As the decades went on, his origin story varied. His primary allegiance bounced between Superman and Superboy (Connor Kent vintage). Krypto’s yellow-sun powers remained, but his canine traits came to the fore. He was protective of his territory.

Honorable mention: Korra, because she’s loving and stubborn and badass and amazing.
