Krypto #72: K-9 Professor

From: Action Comics #349 (April 1967)

Things we didn't know Krypto was up to, at least in the modern era (when Superboy was Superman): Teach at K-Nine College, training puppers to become army sentries and police dogs. Say what?! It's true. Don't you read the Daily Planet?
That's Dr. Kryptonite holding it there. He's a member of Intercrime (precursor to Intergang?) who found a way to replace a person's blood with liquid Kryptonite, and to make sure it works, he's about to ambush Krypto before going after the Man of Steel himself. As advertised, Krypto is judging his pupils on their graduation day, when he spots someone out of place...
Man, Wayne Boring's more realistic version of Krypto is kind of terrifying, isn't he? But not at all scary if you're human Kryptonite. Dr. K makes short work of him.
Krypto should die here, but they keep him sick and hostage in a cage in case they need to lure Superman to his death, which eventually happens after a plot to kill him during celebrity boxing, disguised as a mummy... Anyway, it all comes down to random aliens coming to Earth thinking this green guy is their king in disguise and kidnapping him before he can kill the Supers.
Bet you're thinking Krypto being a tenured professor makes sense in comparison, eh?
