Reputation

Superman is a world-famous superhero based in Metropolis and one of the worlds most powerful in his own right. He's a founding member of the Justice League and one of the worlds foremost defenders.

Biography

The Kryptonian known as Kal-El was born on the alien planet Krypton to scientist Jor-El and his wife Lara in the House of El. After Jor-El discovered that the planet was doomed to die in a supernova, he attempted to find a multitude of ways to try to save the planet…but when this proved as an inevitability, he devised ways to escape with his family..But even this proved futile, for the most part. With no other alternative for all of them to escape the planet, Jor-El and Lara resigned themselves to their fates..dying on Krypton, but moments before the planet exploded, the pair placed their son in a prototype pod and sent it to a place with a yellow sun: Earth.

Landing in Kansas, Kal-El was discovered by Jonathan and Martha Kent, simple farmers who had just learned that they could not have children. Seeing this alien child as their golden oppurtunity for a child (and appropriate thanking of god) they gathered him up and took him home. They raised him as Clark Kent in a little humble town in Smallville, Kansas and taught him him their values, taught him how to be human. While there were many small incidents where his powers were used, even then a terrifying experience for the young Kal-El, as he was still different from everyone, Papa Kent eventually (albeit maybe reluctantly) revealed Clark's true heritage to him. He showed him the pod from which he crash landed, which contained the Kryptonian battle suit he would later don as Superman, and memory crystals of his father. But Papa Kent left it to him to decide what it would mean to him and what choice he would make.

Unwilling to make that choice, Clark decided to embrace his Kryptonian heritage, but remain on earth to be with the humans. Eventually, when he was old enough, he started traveling the world to try to figure out who he wanted to be. Eventually, he ended up exploring the Antarctic, and founded the Fortress of Solitude, a place where he knew no one could ever find him unless he wanted to be found. It was here he first donned his suit…and so he became officially the Man of Steel, Superman!

Character Details

Superman is truly a brave and kind-hearted person with strong personal values justice and morality, thanks to the Kents. While his commitment to being a hero within the law of the 'planet' has been a bright and admirable example to many heroes, it has also stirred resentment among others, who, like some villains, refer to him as the "big blue boy scout." mockingly. In order to protect his true identity as Superman, and to blend in with the people of Earth, Superman has constructed a persona in his civilian identity as Clark Kent, with help from the Kents. To the world at large, Clark is a moderately shy and clumsy person. Having lost his home world of Krypton, Superman is -very- protective of Earth as his new home, and especially of his family and friends. This loss, combined with the almost overwhelming weight of using his great power responsibly, has caused Superman to feel very lonely on Earth. Other Kryptonians like Superboy and Supergirl have helped him on this note. All in all, Superman tries his absolute best to see the good in everyone, and has a big heart, leaving almost everyone he meets greeted with the warmest smile from the Man of Steel.

Wonder Woman Dear Ally Diana has always been one of Clark's dearest friends and allies. While there may be potential for it to be something more, Clark has always been close with Diana. They share much in common, and if Diana needed him, he'd be there.

Martian Manhunter #AlienBros Kal and J'onn have always got along splendidly. With the added comraderie of being fellow Justice League members, Kal finds an interesting bond with the Martian Manhunter that proceeds a deep understanding of one another…They both know the pain of losing their homeworlds, yet finding earth to welcome them as a new home. Kal considers J'onn to be his Martian brother.

Green Lantern League Risk-taker Hal and Kal have an interesting relationship aside from rhyming names. Where Kal can be more humble and reserved, Hal is the exact opposite, more often than not loud and boisterous. They share a very brotherly and familial friendship.

Batman The World's Greatest Detective There are many people Kal is an absolute opposite to. But the only one who tops the list is the Batman. While they've become brothers over the years of superheroics, they differ so much they've come to blows on so many occasions. There are times when Kal just sees Bruce as a man in a Bat costume…but then he remembers just how gifted he truly is, and how lucky he is to be able to call on him.
