Which is presumably why they directly addressed it in dialogue.
Was that in the pilot? Missed it if it was.
Yeah, Lana says something like "You look exactly the same as you did in high school [...] He doesn't age!" and Clark gives her the "Good genes, I guess."
Supergirl season 1 episode one.
24 years before seaon 1 Krypton blows up.
13 year old Kara doesn't age for 24 years.
Kara is 26 in season one so she's been on earth for 13 years and Kal-El has been on Earth for 37, so he's 43 in season 6 of Supergirl.
Although how can Kal-El be 37, when the very first line is "24 years ago my planet was in serious peril"
Maybe the star drive sends them back in time a little proportionate to the duration of the trip, so that travel time is close to zero years rather than thousands of years, if Krypton is half a Galaxy away?
It's like that odd line in Superman: The Movie where Jor-El says that he will have been dead for "many thousands of your years" by the time Kal becomes an adult. Just don't worry too hard about it.
Well, in the comics exactly when Krypton exploded varied according to this or that continuity.
Well you'd think that that was relativity.
Time slowing down as the ship approaches light speed.
How did the Kryptonite meteorite match speeds with the ship?
Carried along in it's wake?
Yeah, but how does Jor-El quote Einstein if Krypton exploded while Earth was still in the Iron Age?
World's first time Traveler.
Not bad for a dog.
They also had a line about it in his first episode of Supergirl.
Sure: it was depressing way before 2020...
Best Superman I ever saw was "The Death of Superman". Tragedy, heroism, and noble self-sacrifice. Comics don't normally make me cry, but that one did.
Then, of course, they reveal it was an attention grab and bring him back.
I don't think bringing him back was ever in doubt. I'm also fine with the "attention grab", as Superman deserves more attention. Too many were taking him for granted.
It's obvious she meant 24 Kryptonian years... So who knows how that translates into Earth years.
So, ran across this:
Not sure if serious? In any case, my incredulous laughter did not treat it as such.
Separate names with a comma.
