By June 1959, the Kandorian “criminal scientist” [[El Gar Kur]] has perfected an elaborate body-switching apparatus that enables him to trade places with anyone who happens to be standing outside the bottle, so that the target individual finds himself suddenly reduced in size and trapped inside Kandor, while El Gar Kur is, in the exact same instant, transported outside the bottle city and enlarged to normal human size. Superman defeats El Gar Kur with the aid of [[Jimmy Olsen]], and the villain’s body-switching apparatus is apparently confiscated by the Kandorian authorities (Act No. 253: “The War Between Superman and Jimmy Olsen!”).

By January 1960, the Kandorian scientist [[Kull-Ex]] has devised an ingenious “exchange ray” designed to enable him to escape the bottle city while trapping Superman inside Kandor. By beaming “a flash of super-energy” at Superman as he stands in his Fortress of Solitude close by the bottle, Kull-Ex is able to reduce the [[Man of Steel]] instantaneously to microscopic size and transport him to his laboratory inside Kandor while simultaneously transporting himself outside the bottle and enlarging himself to normal human size. Moreover, because only human bodies—and not clothing—are affected by the exchange ray, Superman finds himself stranded in Kandor clad in Kull-Ex’s clothing, while Kull-Ex finds himself standing in Superman’s Fortress clad in Superman’s costume Superman ultimately escapes from Kandor and resolves his differences with Kull-Ex, but because “[[Zenium]],” the extraterrestrial element that powers the exchange ray, is exceedingly rare, it is questionable whether the apparatus can ever be used again (S No. 134: ”The Super- Menace of Metropolis!”; “The Revenge Against Jor. El!”; “The Duel of the Supermen!”).
  
 
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.
