* In ''Comicbook/{{Supergirl}}'' story ''Comicbook/TheSupergirlFromKrypton'' Krypton is seen exploding in the background during Kara’s flashbacks.

One of them is able to blow a hole down to a planet's core leaving a firepit. Five hundred of them would turn the planet to ashes.
* In ''Comicbook/WarWorld'' a large number of planetoids explode when Franchise/{{Superman}} and Comicbook/{{Supergirl}} fight alien warlord Mongul's star-sized weapon satellite. Warworld itself explodes when Superman reprograms its computers.
