Superman and Van-Zee discuss the new homeworld of the Kandorians. Art by Curt Swan and Frank Chiarmonte, 1981.

Rokyn

Distant world revolving around a red sun in a galactic system that phases between dimensions, Rokyn is named by its settlers, the enlarged people of Kandor. The planet is colonized and developed as a fully Kryptonian location with Kandorian technology by its residents. The name is a translation of the Kryptonian language and means "gift from god" (S No. 338, Aug 1979: "Let My People Grow!"; KC No. 1, Sep 1981: "The Search for Superman's Roots!").

Rokyn still exists in the far future, and is referred to as a "new Krypton" in the chronicles of the Legion of Super-Heroes (Adv No. 356/1, May 1967: "The Five Legion Orphans!").
