Origin

Pre-Crisis

Carved with his bare hands into the rock face of an ice-covered mountain near the North Pole, is a secret and solitary home where Superman can relax, perform scientific experiments, and temporarily escape the demands and distractions of the everyday world within his Fortress of Solitude.


Post-Crisis

Created by a Kryptonian computer program known as the Eradicator as a means of changing Superman into the ideal Kryptonian and eventually reforming Earth into a physical duplicate of Krypton.


Filled with Kryptonian items which were stored within the Phantom Zone, the base gives Superman a link to his Kryptonian heritage and a place of comfort within his Fortress of Solitude.
