Superman – Birthright | Comics

With the annihilation of the planet Krypton, scientist Jor-El grieves over the fact that no one will ever be able to know and remember of what the Kryptonian race have ever invented and achieved while in the existence so far. While thinking of this, he prepares a space pod for his infant son Kal-El, to send him away from their doomed planet with a slight chance for his son to survive this inevitable doom upon their world.

While watching Kal-El's spaceship to pass shortly before the destruction of the planet, they wonders if their son is going to survive out there in a new alien world. Kal-El's rocket ship had landed on Earth, found by a generous Kansas couple Jonathan and Martha Kent, who raised the alien baby boy as their own in their farm with humbleness and moral code.

To the present day, Kal-El has taken the name of Clark Kent, established himself as a freelance reporter and became aware of the fact that the more nourishing alien atmosphere of Earth has given him incredible superhuman strengths and god-like abilities that are far beyond superior of normal humans, making him a superior being than the humans that inherit it.

As Clark Kent, he secretly uses his powers to save people from natural and other calamities whenever he can. Before he became the Man of Steel, he used to know Lex Luthor from his days at Kansas, who would become one of his greatest enemy for life. After finishing his tour around the world, Clark sets foot on Metropolis to join the Daily Planet as a reporter, then to meet Perry White, Jimmy Olsen and Lois Lane eventually.

Stepping aside from the regular DC Universe, writer Mark Waid (JLA – Year One, Kingdom Come) has teamed up with artist Leinil Francis Yu (New Avengers, Secret Invasion) to re-invent the origin story for Superman. For years we have known him as a humble and polite guy who fights for truth, justice and the American way.

Save that, it's time for the readers of a new generation to know him even better as DC Comics has taken the initiative of re-telling his origin story in a 12 issue limited series with two of the finest comic book creators in 2003. Later, in a similar attempt, DC Comics published another limited series titled Superman – Secret Origin.
