The planet Krypton was born six billion years ago in the Xeno Galaxy in a solar system inhabited by a red sun later named Rao. Thousands of years later, sentient life evolved and led the way to a renowned intellectual society. The planet was conquered by the Vrangs until a Kryptonian named Hatu-El led a successful rebellion. Krypton prospered into an advanced scientific civilization but had its share of internal military conflicts. Unknown until generations later, the uranium core of the planet was becoming increasingly unstable and built up in pressure. According to the Green Lantern Corps, Krypton exists in Space Sector 2813.
The continent of Lurvan is the largest land mass and the most populated of Krypton. The three major cities are located here: Argos City, Kandor, and Kryptonopolis. Kandor is considered Krypton's capital city and houses many research centers such as the Science Plaza and Neo-Consciouness Labs. The Kandor Skyway, Krypton's highway system, leads out to at least as far as the Gold Volcano. The Gold Volcano erupts pure gold because it makes up most of the sub-crustal magma of the planet. Jor-El soon discovered the core was becoming dangerously unstable but it was too late. Every city, every life, and all 29 Wonders of Krypton were doomed. He managed to send his son, Kal-El, away from the planet in a rocket ship to Earth where he grew up to become Superman.
