Brainiac, Doomsday, Hawkwoman, Adam Strange to Appear on Krypton TV Series
Today at the Comic-Con panel for Krypton — coming to Syfy in 2018 — DC TV head Geoff Johns revealed that, although Krypton is a prequel series, DC heroes Adam Strange and Hawkwoman, and DC villains Brainiac and Doomsday, will be a part of the show.
So how will that work? Well, Johns explained that while Krypton takes place in the past and centers around Superman’s grandfather, Seyg-El (Cameron Cuffe), “it’s about a conspiracy from the present that’s traveled back in time to Krypton to prevent the birth of Superman.” That’s where we get Adam Strange and Hawkwoman battling to stop the evil plan and save the present.
Johns then went on to drop the name Doomsday as another character who will arrive on the show, along with Brainiac. Executive producer Cameron Welsh added “What we love about Brainiac is that not only is he an incredible foil for anyone he faces, but also he has a really deep history dating back to his family on Colu. He is the nexus point between man and machine, which is a very relevant thing to be talking about now. He’s a very real character.”
