Superhero Origins: Superman

VOICE OVER: Dan Paradis
Superman’s origin story was originally told on only one page. As a distant planet was dying, a scientist placed his infant son on a spaceship and sent it to Earth. There, the child benefited from an advanced physical structure, which granted him incredible strength. Given the name Clark Kent, as an adult he discovered that he could also run at super speeds and leap great distances. Deciding to use his gifts to benefit mankind and protector of Metropolis, he became Superman! Over the years his origin story and powers have been expanded upon.
