The Caveman of Krypton arrived on Earth encased in a meteor that crashed on the outskirts of Metropolis. Freed from the encasing ice, the Caveman displayed super-strength and the ability to fly. He began wreaking havoc, drawing the attention of Superman, who quickly deduced that this caveman must have come from his home planet of Krypton. Some criminals got involved, hoping to utilise the Caveman, but eventually the Caveman became friendly to the three heroes and helped them capture the crooks. Sadly, soon after he dropped dead. Superman theorised that years of exposure to cosmic rays in space, plus a brief exposure to kryptonite, were too much for him.
