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

Origin[edit | edit source]

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.

Biography[edit | edit source]

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.
