|“||Martha Kent was everything this town aspires to be. She was kind, she was generous, and she was always there when you needed her.||”|
Martha Kent is the adoptive mother of Clark Kent and the wife of the late Jonathan Kent Sr.
Clark's Arrival[edit source]
In the 1980s, Martha and Jonathan witnessed an unknown object crashing onto their farm. As the object opened, a baby child emerged from the pod and Martha and Jonathan took care of him, adopting him as their son known as Clark Kent.
Over the years, Martha and Jonathan took care of Clark while helping him adapt to extraordinary powers. Martha and Jonathan both believed Clark was sent to Earth for a reason.
During the Harvest Fest, Jonathan died of a heart attack and Martha organized a funeral. Clark was emotional during the ceremony and ran off.
Knowing the Truth[edit source]
A year later, Clark argued with Martha about his purpose on Earth, with Martha later giving him a Sunstone Crystal she found in the pod. Clark then travelled to the Arctic and found a fortress with his biological father's A.I. Clark soon returned to Smallville and informed Martha about his heritage, with Martha gifting him a suit after having a dream of him flying as a hero.
