Inside Kandor, where “Krypton’s gravity-conditions are duplicated,” Superman becomes an ordinary human being, without super-powers, although he regains his powers the moment he exits from the bottle and reenters the earthly environment (Act No. 242, Jul 1958: “The Super-Duel in Space”; and others). “Where Krypton’s non-earthly gravity conditions are in force,” muses Superman in October 1958, “I have no super-powers! I... I’m just an ordinary man!” (Act No. 245: “The Shrinking Superman!”; and others). Indeed, even [[Kryptonite]] has no effect on Superman while he remains in Kandor, simply because he is only an ordinary mortal there (Act No. 305, Oct 1963: “Why Superman Needs a Secret Identity!”).

Similarly, any Kandorian who emerges from the bottle city instantly acquires super-powers identical to Superman’s, along with vulnerability to the various forms of kryptonite (Act No. 245, Oct 1958: “The Shrinking Superman!”; and many others). For an ordinary earthling, however, a visit to Kandor can be a trying experience, for the heavy artificial gravity, designed to duplicate the atmospheric conditions that prevailed on Krypton, make it necessary to wear special “anti-gravity shoes” merely to walk in the alien environment (S No. 158, Jan 1963: “Superman in Kandor” pts. I-III—”Invasion of the Mystery Super-Men!”; “The Dynamic Duo of Kandor!”; “The City of Super-People!”).
  
 
Inside Kandor, where "Krypton's gravity conditions are duplicated," Superman becomes an ordinary human being, without super-powers, although he regains use of his powers the moment he exits from the bottle and re-enters the earthly environment.  Kryptonite has no effect on Superman while he remains in Kandor, simply because he is only an ordinary mortal there.
