See, this is why I gave up on comics. All these bloody reboots.
Superman and Wonder Woman are an item now. Lois Lane has pretty much been made a background character. These kids in charge now have no clue, only that to them, changing things is the only way to make them "better." DC lost me way back with the first "Crisis On Infinite Earths" when they destroyed the original DC multiverse. I was a diehard Earth-2 fan. JSA, the original Superman and Batman, the All-Star Squadron, Infinity Inc. and so on.
I think the changes in Supes' costume also has something to do with the settlement that finally happened between DC and the estates of Siegel and Schuster.
But as far as Krypton's star, I don't think this one fits the bill. I (and others) long thought Betelgeuse may be the star of Krypton.
Remeber, in the original comics, the star didn't go nova, like the Christopher Reeve movies (and "Superman Returns") show but Krypton itself was destroyed from within.
