Sent to Earth from the dying planet of Krypton as a baby, Kal-El was found by farmers, Martha and Jonathan Kent. Adopting him as their son, they named him Clark and instilled in him strong moral values. As Clark grew up, the radiation from Earth's yellow sun gave him extraordinary powers including: superhuman strength, speed, and invulnerability. He also has the power of flight as well as X-ray, heat, microscopic, and telescopic vision. As Superman, he is a symbol of truth and justice, devoting his life to the protection of humanity.
