Before Krypton's destruction Jor-El rocketed his only son Kal-El to a primitive planet called Earth. Kal-El was discovered by a Kansas farm couple, John and Martha Kent, who raised the alien as their son Clark.
Upon maturity Clark exhibited incredible powers derived from his exposure to the yellow solar radiation of Earth's sun. With the moral guidance of his adopted parents and the inherited strength of his earth-bound Kryptonian biology, Clark became the worlds first superhero, Superman.
As a new generation of heroes replaced the old-guard, their methods were more violent with no regard for the law. Chief among these new "heroes" was Magog, who ended the Joker's criminal career with homicidal justice. Brought to trial by Superman, Magog was acquitted and his methods were endorsed by the public. Feeling ineffectual Superman retired back to his family farm, until events forced his reluctant return to battle against injustice.
