TIME FOR HEROES: SUPERMAN

Hye everyone..Welcome Back..Today, i'm very excited in writing this post..Its about my favorite super heroes of all time ..SUPERMAN!!


Since I was a kid, I always use to watch Superman either in Television and comic. Ok, lets gets going, Enjoy yeah :D




Jor-El: [at the Fortress of Solitude] So, my son. Speak. 

Young Clark Kent: Who am I? 

Jor-El: Your name is Kal-El. You are the only survivor of the planet Krypton. Even though you've been raised as a human, you are not one of them. You have great powers, only some of which you have as yet discovered.

Above is the dialog between Superman and his Father.Superman is the sole survivor of the planet Krypton. His father, Jor-El, discovered that a nuclear chain reaction was building inside Krypton that would soon shatter the entire world. Jor-El therefore had his unborn son Kal-El removed from the Kryptonian Gestation Chambers and affixed the life matrix containing Kal-El to an experimental vessel for travel through hyperspace. Jor-El launched the starcraft toward Earth just before Krypton exploded.

Land On Earth


Superman Baby arrived on earth.


Superman was, in effect, born on Earth when the starcraft landed there. Jonathan and Martha Kent found the infant inside the vessel and brought him to their farm in Smallville, Kansas. Since he appeared entirely human, the Kents assumed that the baby was a victim of a cruel experiment. At this time the baby had no super powers. The Kents named the infant Clark and raised him as their own son. 



Martha and Jonathan Kent



As clark grew older his Kryptonian body began developing superhuman abilities. When Clark was eighteen, took him to the field where his starcraft still lay hidden and explained how he and Martha had found him. Clark resolved to use his powers from then on only for the good of mankind. After revealing his secret to his childhood friend, Lana Lang, Clark left Smallville to study at Metropolis University. 



Lana Lang. At first, I thought Lana will marry Clark..

Lana Lang was a childhood friend and the high school sweetheart of Clark Kent; eventually she became a world-renowned fashion designer.

Lana Lang was one of the oldest friends Superman had. Unlike most of the people in his life (Lois, Jimmy, Lex, etc), Lana was with Clark from the beginning: She saw his transformation from country boy to superhero happen first hand. She was the first person Clark went to when his latent powers began to surface. She saw first hand his X-Ray vision, and witnessed his acute hearing. As Clark dashed (to use a relative term) to the scene of an accident, Lana saw not only his super speed, but his strength and invulnerability.
However, in Lana's eyes, something more existed than just friendship. An attractive girl, she was always able to garner the attention of any man she was interested in, except Clark Kent. He had always considered her a good friend, and though the two did date for a time, the relationship didn't last. While she vocally expressed her continued level of interest in Clark, the two never permanently clicked; regardless, they remained close throughout high school.



Lana went on to become a fashion designer, and achieved international fame. She was known as a jetsetter; keeping residences in several cities. Her celebrity status, combined with her indisputable physical beauty, caught the attention of Lex Luthor, who, in classic Luthor fashion, sought out and began a relationship with her immediately. Unlike many of his dealings, their relationship was genuine; Luthor actually expressed gratitude to Superman when he saved Lana from an attempted murder.



Lex Luthor

However, like any other relationship, things change. Lana learned of Luthor's less-than-admirable qualities, and began informing Superman of his behind the scenes activities despite his objections to the danger she was putting herself in. Unbeknownst to Lana, Mercy Graves had been observing her for some time, and informed Luthor of the relationship Lana and Superman appeared to share. Though he initially doubted Mercy's findings, his opinion changed as he saw Lana kiss Superman after revealing her feelings for him.

lark initially used his powers covertly to help people and prevent or thwart disasters. Ultimately, he was forced to use his powers in public to prev ent the crash of a NASA space-plane. Thereafter he and his foster parents devised a new costumed secret identity he would adopt when using his abilities in public. They called his new persona "Superman," the name given him by Lois Lane, a reporter for the Metropolis Daily Planet who had been aboard the space-plane. 


Metropolis

Shortly afterward, Clark obtained a job as a reporter for the Daily Planet by turning in his first detailed story about Superman. He currently enjoys a freelance status with the Planet. 




Some time ago Superman journeyed to an otherdimensional "pocket universe" that had its own Krypton and Earth. After defeating three Kryptonians native to that universe who had murdered the entire population of its Earth, Superman executed the trio, believing there was no other way to stop them.

Eh, By the way..Superman have his own personal room. The room name , the Fortress of Solitude.



Superman lives by the traditional moral values instilled in him by his foster parents. Superman is an idealist, devoted to promoting "truth, justice, and the American way," and has proved over and over that he is a true hero, capable of whatever bravery and self-sacrifice is necessary to right a wrong or save a life.


SUPERPOWER

Since Superman is a native of Krypton, a planet that had a red sun, under a yellow sun (like that of Earth's his Kryptonian cells act as living solar batteries, absorbing solar energy and giving him superhuman powers. He possesses tremendous strength; while Superman's strength is not infinite, its full extent is so great that it has never been accurately measured. His body is virtually indesrtuctible.


Superman have the ability firing a high temperature of laser towards his enemy.


As another superheroes, Superman have the abilities to fly, and he's so strong until he can bend a steel by using the least of his power.

Superman's sharp senses enable him to hear souns too faint to be detected by the normal human ear. His "telescopic vision" enables him to focus his sight on distant objects far beyond the range of normal human sight. His "microscopic vision" allows him to observe an object in microscopic detail. Superman's so called "x-ray vision" enables him to see clearly through solid objects. Certain dense materials, notably lead, obstruct this ability. His power to generate heat within objects manifests itself as a red glow within his eyes, and is therefore known as "heat vision."

Superman can move, react, and think at superhuman speeds greater than that of sound. He can defy gravity and fly through force of will. Superman's irradiated cells generate a force field that extends for a fraction of an inch around his body, rendering any material within the field nearly indestructible, such as his skin tight costume.

Superman is vulnerable to the radiation of Kryptonite, a substance from his native planet. Kryptonite radiation will kill Superman within minutes. He is also vulnerable to magic, and to the psionic powers of some beings, such as Braniac. 

Superman must fill his lungs with air before flying through outer space. He can thus survive without breathing for several hours

Lois Lane


Lois Lane was a reporter worked at the Daily Star. For years Lois had a major crush on Superman whom she didn't know was in reality reporter Clark Kent. When the Wizard cast a spell that made Clark forget that he was Superman he eventually won Lois' heart as a crimefighting newsman and the two were married. 






On their honeymoon Lois discovered Clark's real identity and sought out the Wizard and made him reverse the spell. While Lois was ready to forsake their marriage given that Clark didn't know who he was at the time, he wouldn't let her and the renewed their wows at the Fortress of Solitude. At the end of the event known as Crisis Lois was joined by Superman, the Earth-Prime Superboy and Alexander Luthor, Jr. in another dimension. All four recently returned to the new merged Earth that the Crisis had resulted in.

Who is Supergirl?

he adventures of the original Supergirl, Kara Zor-El from Krypton, were published by DC Comics from 1959 to 1985. She appeared in Action Comics, Adventures Comics, Superman Family, and two Supergirl series. Kara Zor-El died in the Crisis on Infinite Earths comic series which rebooted the DC universe in 1985. Many superheroes either had their origins recreated in the reboot or their identities were taken on by new characters. Both occurred for Supergirl.

THE DEATH OF SUPERMAN?

The Death of Superman" is a 1992 comic book storyline that occurred in DC Comics's Superman titles. The completed multi-issue story arc was given the title The Death and Return of Superman.
In the story, Superman engages in battle with a seemingly unstoppable killing machine named Doomsday in the streets of Metropolis. At the fight's conclusion, both  die from their wounds in Superman (vol. 2) #75 in 1992.




Doomsday: Right

In actuality, the Last Son of Krypton stole Superman's body and put it in a regeneration matrix in the Fortress of Solitude, drawing on his recovering energies to power himself, as bright light blinded him. It is revealed that the Last Son is, in actuality, the Eradicator, an ancient Kryptonian weapon, and the Cyborg is the deranged consciousness of Hank Henshaw, which used Superman's birthing matrix to create a physical duplicate of his body

The actual Superman returns. Portion of a page from Adventures of Superman #504 by Tom Grummett.
The regeneration matrix broke open, and the original Superman emerged, greatly depowered, but alive. Meanwhile, the Cyborg helped Mongul destroy Coast City, believing he killed the Last Son in the explosion, and captured Superboy, holding him in Engine City, a towering construct erected where Coast City once stood. Superboy escaped and flew back to Metropolis to get the Man of Steel to help him fight the Cyborg. Before he could tell the whole story, however, an overbearing Kryptonian Battlesuit rose out of the harbor, and the two heroes attacked it. After suffering heavy damage, the suit opened, revealing a still-weak Superman, who had used it to walk all the way back from the Fortress of Solitude. Despite his weakened state, he quickly joined the other Supermen in defending Coast City.
