I love Kal-El, Kara Zor-El, and Krypto... Edit
but mostly going back to their original incarnations... Edit
I much prefer looking back to the old issues, which is where I got into Superboy, Superman, Supergirl, and Krypto in the first place, after discovering my Dad's collection in the attic!Edit
I'm sure new writers would defend their choices by saying that new backstories free them from the restrictions of the old, original mythos... but all the Crises and revisionist storylines seem SUPERSilly to me, with very little added benefit to the new storylines from destroying the traditional history of our beloved, post-apocalyptic survivors of erstwhile Krypton. Edit
Ah, well... Each to one's own! Enjoy them in whichever incarnations you've come to love!
