The Kryptonians are a Humanoid species originating from the planet Krypton. Unlike other humanoids, their bodies have adapted to absorb and store massive amounts of solar energy. When under a Yellow star, this activates the Photonucleic Effect, making their tissue nearly invulnerable, their muscles incredibly strong, and giving them the ability to fly and release stored solar energy as various types of electromagnetic radiation. (Superman franchise: "Superman" comics)
