708 – Beppo, the Super-Monkey

A panel from Superboy #76, August 1959

Beppo, the Super-Monkey makes his debut in Superboy #76 (August 1959). Unnamed in this first story, the monkey is one of Jor-El’s test animals that snuck aboard Kal-El’s rocket before it left Krypton. Young Clark eventually tricks the monkey to be chased out into space. Beppo will be back, and eventually joins up with other Kryptonian pets like Krypto…

Yeah, I think they may have expanded the Super-Family a little too far this time!

Known surviving Kryptonians: 1,000,008. (includes a dog, so why not throw in a monkey too!)
