Planet X was a theorized large planet that would explain a disparity in the orbital pattern of the outer gas giants--Uranus and Neptune. The search for Planet X resulted in the location of Pluto, Eris, and several other bodies now called dwarf planets outside Neptune's orbit, but Planet X was never found, as it does not exist. The variance in orbits were explained by more accurate size readings taken by Voyager 2.

Actually, within the past couple of years new evidence has come to light that seems to indicate that Planet X may actually exist. I believe the consensus among astronomers as of August 2016 is that it probably does.

Ironically, one reason for calling it Planet X was that X is the roman numeral for 10. So now it would have to be called Planet IX ("Planet Ix", as in "icks"?)

Would it be posible to accept "Nibiru" for "planet X"? It's a name given to it by a lot of "believers."

Not knowing much about Superman, never having been a huge fan of DC in general, all I could think was 'Notpyrk?' However, being a die-hard Whovian, all I can think is WHERE IS GALLIFREY? WHERE IS RAXACORICOFALLAPATORIUS, which would definitely be hilarious, WHERE IS ANYTHING? Come ON, people!

It really reassures my faith in education that 100% of people know that we live on Earth, when less than 20 years ago, 14% of Americans couldn't point to America on a map.

I don't know those planets from the movies, but I know the 8 planets in our solar system: Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune ... And I even know 9 Dwarf Planets in our solar system not just...: Ceres, Pluto, Haumea, Makemake, Eris, Sedna, Quaoar and Orcus there's even another dwarf planet called 2007 or10. Sounds a little interesting. Right?
+1

Sedna, Quaoar, Orcus, and 2007 OR10 are only proposed dwarf planets. (Also, Salacia and 2002 MS4).
