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.
