    Default Question pertaining to Krypton's effect on humans

    My friend had a question. He knows that Krytonians are powered by the Earth's Sun while there, but he was wondering if humans were able to go to Krypton if they'd be powered up?
    Thank god comic fans are such a tiny little percentage of the audience needed for a successful film because apparently we not only hate fucking everything, we're willing to even pre-hate things...

    Kryptonians gain powers under a yellow star because that is a feature of their biology. Humans have no such thing.

    That's what I thought.

    Under a blue sun humans get Superman-powers.

    Krypton I believe had a RED sun. A red sun is not as hot as our yellow sun. So if you went to Krypton you'd be cold and sluggish.

    On Krypton, a planet with a higher gravitiy, a human would be crushed to death, even breath would be hard to do.

    Which is why Jor-El devised the chamber to protect and nurture the Earth child in Last Son of Earth.

    Pre-Crisis continuity, there was one Imaginary Story where humans had powers on Krypton, but that was it. The rest of the time, they weren't with powers. Post Crisis Continuity, humans aren't affected at all. Kryptonians, due to the messing about of their genetics, could gain powers under particular suns. A red sun will freeze their powers, rendering them as powerless. Under an orange sun, they're at half the power they're normally at. Under a blue sun, their powers increase and even gain more abilities.

    If that's the case X-rays and gamma rays must make Kryptonians into immortal beings...and the radio and TV must make them really powerless...
