This article refers to the version of Superman as seen in the television series, Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman and related media. For the character in general, see Superman.

Superman is the hero of Metropolis. He's the last son of Krypton. He was born Kal-El, and when his parents Jor-El and Lara realized that his planet was doomed, they sent their son to Earth, where he would be found by Jonathan Kent and Martha Kent and given the name Clark Jerome Kent, but upon growing up and discovering the powers he gained from Earth's yellow sun, he would use his powers for good, and the world would know him, as Superman.

He worked as a reporter at the Daily Planet under his secret identity of Clark Kent and became one of it's best news writers.

He also developed a friendship, relationship and later marriage to fellow reporter Lois Lane and had several fierce battles with his arch-nemesis Lex Luthor and encounters with other criminals.

Many people have found out Superman's true identity, but with the exception of Lois, Jonathan and Martha Kent, H.G Wells, Jonathan's friend Wayne Irig and four villains (Diana Stride, Jason Mazik, Tempus and Mr. Mxyzptlk), everyone else has either died or had their memory erased.

He has been portrayed by Dean Cain in the television series Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman.
