Superman | Comics
When his own birth planet Krypton was about to be doomed soon, Kal-El's parents Jor-El and Lara sent him to Earth on a rocket, in hopes that their civilization will live and reborn once again through Kal-El, who would successfully carry on their legacy. When his rocket landed on earth, he was found and later raised by a kindly couple of Kansas, Jonathan and Martha Kent. He became their adoptive son and Kal-El became Clark Kent. As he grows to his maturity, he discovers that he has great powers within him which differs him from the humans. He chooses to use his godly gifts to help the fellow inhabitants of his adoptive planet and anyone in need, as the last son of Krypton became Superman, the Man of Steel, who fights for truth, justice and American way!

Clark created the Superman persona to maintain his own personal life while fighting the evil, with a costume designed by Martha Kent. He works in Metropolis at the newspaper Daily Planet as a reporter alongside fellow reporter Lois Lane, photographer Jimmy Olsen and his editor Perry White. Most often, when the everyday super villains attempts to wreck havoc he is always there to save the day. Superman's presence in Metropolis also introduced an number of influential super-criminals to step in and pose as a challenge to the Man of Steel. The situation sometimes led to even global scale disasters more than Superman can handle alone, resulting in the formation of JLA, along with Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Martian Manhunter and Aquaman.

In the wake of The New 52, the Man of Steel received a slightly different origin in the Prime Earth timeline; a result of the “Flashpoint” event. Other than that, Superman also appeared on Superman – The Animated Series, Justice League and Justice League Unlimited as well as a few live-action TV Series of his own. There was a series of Superman movies in the 70-80’s era, portrayed by actor Christopher Reeve and then Brandon Routh took the mantle in Superman Returns (2006). In 2013, Henry Cavill donned the cape and appeared on Man of Steel, thus giving birth to the DC Extended Universe; a franchise of films based on DC Comics. He also appeared on 2016’s Batman v Superman – Dawn of Justice, the first ever live-action movie to feature Superman alongside Batman, Wonder Woman and the villainous Doomsday!
