Clark Kent, aka Superman, is Earth's greatest hero and the main protagonist of Smallville. Hailing from the planet Krypton, Clark is an alien born as Kal-El, sent to Earth by parents Jor-El and Lara to escape Krypton's destruction, and in the process become a guardian of the planet Earth. Accompanied by a massive meteor shower, his spaceship crash-landed in Smallville: there, he was found by farmers Jonathan Kent and Martha Kent who raised him as their son, instilling in him strong moral principles and teaching him to use his abilities for good.
Thanks to the yellow sun, Clark developed many Kryptonian powers that grew stronger as he got older, learning much about his origins from Dr. Virgil Swann, and an artificial intelligence replicating Jor-El. Clark secretly fought crime around his hometown during his high school years, and after moving to Metropolis in adulthood moonlit as a vigilante initially known as the Good Samaritan, then as the Red-Blue Blur, and then simply as the Blur, before assuming the identity of Superman to save the Earth from the forces of Darkseid and Apokolips. By day, he works as a reporter at the Daily Planet and manages his family's farm.
