Kal-el was launched from the dying planet Krypton, alongside his older cousin Kara Zor-el. However, Kara was launched off course, and Kal was officially on his own. Landing on Earth, Superman was raised by 2 kind farmers, Jonathan and Martha Kent. Despite clearly being alien, the Kents taught their newly adopted son how to be human, and even gave him an Earth name, Clark Kent. Clark never knew about his powers until one day, the Kent farm was attacked by a hostile group of teenagers. Jonathan tried to fight off the teens, but his gun didn’t do enough. Jonathan was killed and Martha was about to be a victim of rape. 7 year old Clark punched one of the teens out of the house, nearly killing him. The others tried to subdue or kill Clark, but their strength was apparently incomprehensible compared to Clark’s. To top it off, every bullet they fired bounced right off of him. After defeating the hostiles, Clark wanted to kill the one who killed his father. Heating up his eyes, Clark was about to kill the leader. Martha stopped him, making sure he remembers what Jonathan taught him about power and justice.
When the police arrived, all of the teens were arrested and put to trial. Luckily, Clark managed to control himself even after losing his father. Martha broke the ice when she told Clark that he was an alien, and was stronger and exponentially more powerful than humans. When Clark was 18, he dawned a red cape, a blue suit, and the Kryptonian symbol of hope, as he travels worldwide, helping the unfortunate souls more ways than one. Lost at sea? Superman will push the boat to the nearest harbor. Town about to be flooded? Superman can freeze the tidal wave and save countless lives...Kidnapped or being traded by traffickers? Superman will find and expose the assailants to the police, as well as rescue the unfortunates victim to it.
