"Krypton" is only the latest Superman origin story among many previous versions and retellings of the famed hero. The new television series is a unique twist on the classic Superman origin story, focusing on the politics of the Krypton when both Kal-El's grandfather and the planet was still alive. But "Smallville" was a smash success for 10 seasons on WB/CW networks, and still cited by fans as the best adaptation of the classic comic book character. Which Superman prequel is your favorite?

Below is the synopsis of "Smallville," per IMDB

A young Clark Kent struggles to find his place in the world as he learns to harness his alien powers for good and deals with the typical troubles of teenage life in Smallville, Kansas.

Screenrant's Jason Chamberlain writes why "Smallville" was the ultimate Superman origin story:

Though not as universally beloved as Superman: The Movie, nor as steeped in history as the long running DC Comics series, Smallville renewed the Superman legend for a new generation. For ten years, it distilled the essence of Superman and his world into a weekly show, ultimately producing 218 episodes. Readily available on DVD (and recently on Hulu), the series is a great way for any new disciple of the Man Of Steel to immerse themselves in some of his best stories to date.

Below is the synopsis of "Krypton," per IMDB

The untold story of Superman's grandfather as he fights for justice on his home planet.

Rolling Stone's Rob Sheffield calls the show a clever origin story. 

Syfy's clever Krypton isn't just another origin story - it's the origin behind the origin...Krypton is a clever shot at finding new stories inside one of the most beloved superhero sagas in any universe.
