    And there's one thing I do know, son, and that is you are here for a reason.
    Jonathan Kent to Clark Kent[src]

    Clark Kent, born Kal-El, is one of the few individuals that survived the destruction of Krypton. Kal-El was sent to Earth at a young age, where he was raised by Jonathan and Martha Kent to become a reporter for the Daily Planet. In secret, he operated as the vigilante known as Superman.

    Evacuation from Krypton[edit | hide]

    Kal-El was born in 1948 to Jor-El and Lara Lor-Van on the planet Krypton. Shortly after his birth, his father discovered that Krypton would explode within thirty days. He brought this information to the Kryptonian Science Council who debated on whether or not to evacuate the planet but eventually decided against it, believing Jor-El to be mistaken. They then accused him of insurrection but withdrew this accusation in exchange for a promise that he and his wife would not leave the planet.

    Jor-El then began to construct a pod, made from holographic crystals that stored information from twenty-eight known galaxies and a shard of green kryptonite, in which he would place his son. He plotted a course for Earth, but his wife was uncomfortable with this action due to the planet being thousands of years behind in technological progress, with Jor-El countering that his powers and the information within the pod would keep him safe. Jor-El then placed Kal-El in the pod and said his final goodbye before sending it on its course moments before Krypton began to collapse.[1]

    Arrival on Earth[edit | hide]

    Kal-El's pod travelled across six galaxies in the span of three years, with messages from his father playing from the holographic crystals that formed the pod before eventually arriving in Earth's atmosphere, which caused the pod to warp inward and crash to the surface. He landed in Smallville, Kansas, which caused a tire to pop in Jonathan and Martha Kent's truck which was driving nearby. They got out to see what the cause was and found Kal-El and his pod. Martha, believing him to be a gift from God, wanted to adopt the child whereas Jonathan wanted to alert the authorities. During the discussion, the truck almost fell on Jonathan before Kal-El lifted it, which likely saved his life. This made the couple fear what the government might do if they were alerted to his existence, and so they adopted him under the name, Clark Kent.[1]

    Flashpoint[edit | hide]

    Due to The Flash's actions in creating the Flashpoint timeline, the multiverse began to collapse, and numerous ruptures occurred throughout different universes. On UE-2, Superman and Supergirl observed the rupture in the sky and the collision of their universe with another, though this was quickly reversed.[2]
