Who Is Superman? The Mythology of Kal-El

Superman is a fictional comic book superhero created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster in 1932.  The pair later sold Superman to detective comics in 1938, which are now known as DC comics.  Superman first caught the public’s imagination when he was released to the world in the action comic’s issue 1.

Superman was the first of his kind, without him there may have never been a superhero genre.  Superman was born on the planet Krypton under the name of Kal-El.  Kal-El was a little child no more than a few weeks old when his planet was headed for destruction, knowing this his father the brilliant scientist of Krypton named Jor-El built a rocket ship that would eventually save his sons life and send him to our planet, planet earth.

Earth was the new home of baby Kal-El where he was found and raised as a normal human on a Kansas farm in a small town called Smallville.  Kal-El was raised by a humble and caring family known as the Kent’s, where they would rename baby Kal-El to Clark Kent. 

Clark Kent started to show super human abilities even from a small age, and not known to him then he would eventually use these powers to benefit mankind.

With age Clark soon left Smallville and headed off to the big bustling City of Metropolis where he became the star reporter alongside the arrogant Lois Lane, later the both fell madly in love and in the most recent movie outing of superman the two had a little child named Jason.

Overall superman is my favourite superhero simply because he always does the right thing even if that means he has to sacrifice himself.
