Superman is one of the most powerful beings on the planet Earth, an alien immigrant named Kal-El from the planet Krypton who was raised in Smallville, Kansas to become an American super-hero. Raised with high moral ideals, he uses his incredible strength, speed, flight and various other powers to fight evil and protect the innocent. In his civilian identity he is Clark Kent, a mild-mannered reporter working for the Daily Planet in Metropolis. He is a founding member of the Justice League of America and a charter member of the Legion of Super-Heroes in the 30th Century.
Superman's enemies would include both the supernatural and the science fictional. Lex Luthor is probably his greatest foe. Arguably Superman's greatest foe, however, apart from Lex Luthor is Brainiac.
Superman is commonly seen as a brave and kind-hearted hero with a strong sense of justice, morality and righteousness. He adheres to a strict moral code often attributed to the Midwestern values with which he was raised. His commitment to operating within the law has been an example to many other heroes but has stirred resentment among others, who refer to him as the "big blue boy scout." Superman can be rather rigid in this trait, causing tensions in the superhero community, notably with Wonder Woman (one of his closest friends) after she killed Maxwell Lord. To protect his secret identity, Superman has constructed a persona in his civilian identity as Clark Kent. To the world at large, Clark is a mild-mannered and clumsy person. Only Lois Lane, his wife, knows that this attitude is just an act.
Some of Superman's notable ability are the following: Superhuman strength, Invulnerability, Superhuman Stamina, Flight, Superhuman Speed, Superhuman hearing, smell, sight, super scream, Super breath, Heat Vision, and X-ray Vision.
