When Kal-El was just a baby on his home planet Krypton, his father, a scientist named Jor-El, learned the planet’s core was unstable and ultimately doomed. He attempted to warn his people and prompt them to evacuate, but the dogmatic Kryptonian government dismissed Jor-El’s warnings completely, forcing him and his family to confront the inevitability of Krypton’s destruction.
Mere moments before the planet was destroyed, Jor-El and his wife Lara managed to load their infant son into an escape pod and launch him into space, hoping that their final act would save him from the fate of their people.
Baby Kal-El’s pod traveled through the universe until it crash-landed on Earth. Or, more specifically, in a quiet field outside the tiny town of Smallville, Kansas, where he was discovered by Jonathan and Martha Kent. As they examined the wreckage, they found the infant and, as they were without child, decided to take him in as their own. The Kents hid the wreckage of the escape pod and raised Kal-El as their own, giving him the human name Clark Kent, and doing their best to ensure that he would have a normal upbringing, and remain indistinguishable from any other child in Smallville.
For most of his early life, Clark believed he was human. It wasn’t until his Kryptonian abilities—including heat and x-ray vision, super-strength, super-speed, and flight—began manifesting in his teens that his adoptive family decided to tell him the truth. Clark then viewed a holographic message from his parents that had been stored within his escape pod. It explained everything about Clark’s lost homeworld and the people he’d never known.
After Martha Kent crafted a costume for him, Clark began fighting crime and injustice in all its forms. Lois Lane, a reporter for the Metropolis newspaper, the Daily Planet, and eventually Clark’s coworker, coined the name Superman in her exposé revealing his existence to the world. Since then, Superman has become one of the most trusted and well-recognized figures in the DC universe, the guardian of not just his city, but the planet at large.
