When the planet of Krypton faces destruction, Jor-El sends his infant son to Earth. The child is adopted and raised by farmers Jonathan and Martha Kent, who christen the boy Clark and raise him as their own flesh and blood. Clark keeps his lineage a secret and grows up to become a newspaper reporter on The Daily Planet, working alongside Lois Lane under Editor in Chief Perry White. The arrival on Earth of renegade Kryptonian general Zod forces Clark to reveal his heroic alter ego.
