Superboy (sometimes called Superboy Prime or the Superboy of Earth Prime) is a superhero turned villain in the DC Universe.


Born on an alternate Earth where superheroes only exist in comic books, young Clark Kent lived an almost identiical life to who he thought was a fictional character before learning that he too was a powerful alien.


Kal-El was a child born on the planet Krypton and was the son of the scientists Jor-El and Lara.  Jor-El, learning of the coming destruction of his world, put his son in a rocket to escape.  He landed on Earth and was found by a couple, Jerryand Noami Kent, who raised him as their own.  Noami named him Clark, who coincidentally shared a name with the popular comic book character Superman.  This often resulted in him being teased but Clark took it in stride and even made a small circle of friends.
