He brings this prediction to the Kryptonian council, but their computer, called Brainiac, denies these predictions. Later, Jor-El confronts Brainiac about this, and Brainiac reveals he was lying, and Krypton was going to be destroyed. When asked why he lied, Brainiac reveals that his goal was to be the last remaining Kryptonian. Jor-El rushes home to save his infant son, Kal-El. Jor-El puts him in a small rocket, and sends him to a planet called Earth, just as Krypton is destroyed.

Landing on EarthEdit

When the ship landed on Earth, it landed on a farm. It was found by Johnathan and Martha Kent. They looked inside, and found a baby. They decided to adopt him, and name him Clark. Several years later, Clark is in high school. He is starting to develop incredible powers. He talks to his parents about this, and they reveal how they found him in the ship. Clark looks at a device that contains a message from Jor-El, revealing he is the sole survivor of the planet Krypton. He realizes that he must use his powers responsibly.

Becoming SupermanEdit

When Clark entered his 20s, he moved from Smallville to Metropolis. He got a job at a newspaper called the Daily Planet, where he meets Lois Lane and Perry White. In Metropolis, he put on a costume and stopped a plane from crashing in the city. The Daily Planet dubbed him "Superman." He started protecting Metropolis and fighting crime.
