📜 History of Superman Day

Jor-El and Lara, Kal-biological El’s parents, made one last attempt to save their son from the world’s impending destruction by sending him to Earth from his home planet. His adopted parents, Martha and Jonathan Kent of Smallville, Kansas, brought him up as Clark Kent on Earth. Clark’s parents and other family members learned of his superhuman powers as he grew up, including superstrength, laser eyesight, x-ray vision, flight, and invulnerability, among others. In Superman’s tales, the contrast between Clark Kent and his superhero alter ego, Superman, serves as a key source of tension as Clark juggles his work as a reporter with his actions as a messenger of goodwill.
