Pre-CrisisEdit

Original CirceEdit

The original Circe was actually a Kryptonian scientist who invented an Evolution Serum, composed partially of Kryptonite. She evolved many Kryptonians into various animals. It is likely she then traveled to Earth, where she became known to the Greeks. ("The Lady and the Lion")

Modern CirceEdit

A descendant of the Kryptonian scientist, a modern Mediterranean woman was also named Circe and still had some of the serum invented by her ancestor, though her Kryptonian powers seemed to have been diluted through generations of inbreeding with Humans. ("The Lady and the Lion")
