Superman

On the planet Krypton, the ruling council praises member Jor-El for exiling criminals General Zod, Ursa, and Non to the Phantom Zone. It disagrees with the scientist's claim, however, that Krypton will soon be destroyed when its red supergiant sun goes supernova. To save Kal-El, his infant son, Jor-El sends him in a spaceship to Earth, where his dense molecular structure will give him superhuman strength and other powers. Krypton's sun explodes, destroying the planet.
