The baby is adopted by Jonathan and Martha Kent, who name the boy Clark, give him a loving home and teach him right from wrong.
However, Clark turns out to be different from humans after all.
In other takes, Superman has been a bachelor or dated/married different characters (in the New 52, he was dating Wonder Woman).
Originally created by Jerry Siegel (writer) and Joe Shuster (artist), two sons of Jewish immigrants who, after several tries, finally got him published in This wasn't their first attempt at the character they had in mind.
See also Supergirl, his Distaff Counterpart, and Krypto the Superdog, his Kryptonian dog., a graphic novel written by Steven T.
Possibly the most famous supporting cast of any superhero, it consists of a large number of changing characters, the fixtures of which are: his doting parents Jonathan and Martha (aka "Ma and Pa") Kent (pre-Crisis, throughout his childhood and teen years, before dying shortly after Clark's high school graduation; post-Crisis, advising him well into adulthood; and in the New 52 both dying before he becomes Superman); his gruff, hot-tempered, long-suffering boss, Perry White, who gladly accepts Clark's constant disappearances and eccentricities as long as he comes back with a headline story; his best friend (in both identities) Jimmy Olsen, a young cub reporter/photographer with a wildly fluctuating age, the highest Weirdness Magnet rating in the DC universe and the unique gift of a signal watch he can use to call Superman anytime he gets into trouble; his short-tempered, stubborn teenager of a cousin Kara Zor-El alias Supergirl, who also survived the death of their planet but arrived on Earth several decades later and has a hard time adapting to her new home and finding out what kind of woman and hero she wants to be; and most importantly, his sharp-tongued, recklessly determined go-getter of a reporting partner (and longstanding object of his affections) Lois Lane, who was desperately in love with Superman but who always dismissed the mild Clark Kent.
However, in some interpretations, she would eventually fall for Clark, not Superman, before learning they were the same person and marrying him/them.
While not quite the first superhero, he is certainly the Trope Codifier (and "super-" makes him the Trope Namer).
Has been published continuously by DC Comics for nearly 80 years. On the technologically advanced planet of Krypton, scientist Jor-El discovers that his planet will soon be destroyed by natural disasters.
