Origin

Both growing up in Smallville, Kansas, many thought that Jonathan and Martha were destined for marriage. But Jonathan was drafted into the war and was reported as missing in action, having been taken prisoner. After a year Martha accepted that Jonathan was dead and married department store owner Daniel Fordman.


After the war Jonathan returned to the place of his birth to discover his love had married another. Fate would intervene when Fordman would shortly die of cancer. Before he died Martha insisted that she not inherit his fortune.


After a period of grieving Martha and Jonathan were married, but despite several attempts they were unable to have children.


Once again fate intervened when the Kents would discover a small spacecraft with an infant on board. The Kents raised the alien boy as their own naming him Clark and instilling in him the values that would serve him as Earth's greatest champion, Superman.
