Superman– reporter Clark Kent who wears the iconic red and blue costume and cape, fights crime, and protects the Earth as the “Man of Steel”. A leading superhero in the DC Comics and DC Extended Universe, he has appeared in comic books, films, television series, and video games.
Superman was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster, he debuted in 1938 in the pages of Action Comics magazine. He starts the superhero boom and inspired the creators to create several other characters, including Batman and Captain Marvel, who over time became his companions within the DC Comics universe.
The details of his biography vary from comic book to comic book and movie to movie. The core, however, still remains roughly the same. Born as Kal-El, his parents send him to Earth from planet Krypton. Found by a childless Smallville couple, the Kents raised him as their own son, he took the name Clark Kent and took a job as a reporter for the Daily Planet newspaper in the city of Metropolis. In contact with Earth’s atmosphere and the energy of the sun, his Kryptonian biology gave him supernatural powers, including flying, X-ray and laser vision, and super strength.
He decided to use these powers to help people as Superman. Although extremely powerful, however, Superman is not invincible. Lead blocks his x-ray vision, and an element called Kryptonite from his home planet is deadly to him. Over time, more varieties of Kryptonite began to appear, including Red Kryptonite, which blocks Superman’s powers.
Superman’s friends include both old acquaintances from Smallville (Lana Lang and Pete Ross), fellow journalists (Lois Lane, Jimmy Olsen, Perry White, Cat Grant), and other superheroes (Batman, Supergirl, Flash, Wonder Woman, and the rest of the Justice League heroes). The Man of Steel’s leading antagonists includes Brainiac, Metallo, General Zod, Doomsday, Darkseid, Mogul, Bizarro, and Mister Mxyzptlk, among others.
