Super… Dog?

Ironically, a sign of true “brand” greatness is the expansion into weird secondary content and characters.

How else can you explain this fellow? 

Somewhere along the lines of making this toy, KRYPTO the SuperDog hit some heat and started to look more and more like Scooby-Doo. I can’t even start on BatDog. Honestly, the only thing Krypto brings is a kryptonite to Superman credibility. 

For example, can anyone explain what this toy does? It honestly makes me think “annoyometer.” It’s bizarre, buy it maybe, but don’t look at it for too long, it’s like looking at the sun.

And though this is small redemption, here is a classic Superman cover that also happens to be Krypto’s second appearance. I love this era, where frequently Superman stories were just bizarre. I feel as though any notable modern Superman writer nods at this, certainly both John Byrne and Grant Morrison did.

“The police are treating me like an outlaw! WHY?”
