Syfy is hoping that fans’ interest in Superman’s homeworld will be enough to catapult its new series Krypton to success. But just in case a live-action drama about the history of Superman’s family wasn’t enough to pull you in, Krypton’s adding another DC character to up the ante: Adam Strange.

According to Deadline, Shaun Sipos (The Vampire Diaries) is set to join Krypton as Strange, a human who is suddenly transported from Earth to Krypton two generations before Superman’s birth. In the show, Strange will find companionship with Superman’s grandfather Seg-El, as a grander plot unfolds about heroes and villains from the present meddling with Superman’s future.

In the comics, Strange has a number of his own adventures after a series of mysterious Zeta Rays transport him from Earth to the far-off planet Rann. We can expect to see Adam Strange teaming up with Superman’s ancestors to fight Braniac when Krypton premieres next year on Syfy.

This whole show is weird. I suspect it’s going to be a Gothamesque train wreck, and I can’t tell if that makes me want to see it more or less.
