S is for Superman

Superman, birth name Kal-El and adopted name Clark Kent, is also one of the founding members of the Justice League. After responding to the Imperium invasion, Superman joined with Batman, Green Lantern, Flash, Wonder Woman, Hawkgirl, and J'onn J'onzz to form the Justice League.

Everybody knows how as an infant Kal-El was sent to Earth by his parents, Jor-El and Lara, prior to the destruction of their home planet, Krypton. Kal-El's space capsule landed near Smallville, Kansas, where he was found by Jonathan and Martha Kent. The Kents adopted the young Kryptonian, naming him "Clark", after Martha's maiden name.

As an adult, Clark moved to Metropolis and found employment as a reporter for the Daily Planet. In keeping with his civilian identity of Clark Kent, Superman maintained a high rise apartment and automobile of his own. Additionally, Clark Kent often ate even though Superman received his sustenance from the yellow sun, and did not require food.

Shortly after his arrival in Metropolis, Superman met Lex Luthor, who would become one of his greatest and most persistent adversary.

Two of the more significant adventures for Superman would involve meeting an alternate universe team of the Justice League called the Justice Lords and face off once more against Darkseid and Brainiac, who were seemingly destroyed by Superman. Both events would come back to haunt Superman in time.
