Man of steel as he is called. Superman, not born of earth but born of Krypton, A world that was detroyed by its own elements, leaving his family with one choice: to send their son to earth, and be the only surviving Kryptonian.

Landing on earth as a baby, he is found by a farmer and his wife who adopt him and name him Clark Kent, and raising him to be a normal human boy.

Very early in his life he displays superhuman abilities, and when he matures he uses these abilities to help the human race.

In keeping his secret identity, as Clark Kent, he is a journalist for a Metropolis news paper called the Daily Planet. A very nerdy character who is seemingly clumsy and wears glasses, but as danger strikes, he becomes Superman, who can fly at a super speed, has super strength, is invulnerable to non-magical attacks, vision powers (including x-ray, heat-emitting, telescopic, infra-red, and microscopic vision), super-hearing, super-intelligence, and super-breath, which enables him to blow out air at freezing temperatures, as well as exert the propulsive force of high-speed winds.
