Real Identity: Jonathan and Martha Kent
Voiced By: Frances Conroy
Jonathan and Martha Kent, residents of Smallville, Kansas, lived on the Kent family farm which remained unchanged since about 1871. They were married for 10 years and bitterly regreted that they couldn't have children. Not much of a religious man, Jonathan prayed for a child. That night, on late ride back home, the couple witnessed Kal-El's rocket ship land.
Martha found the baby and the Kent's adopted him and named him Clark, after Martha's maiden name. They did their best to raise the boy and instill him with a high sense of morality. When Clark was in his teens and began displaying super powers, the Kent's realized it was time to show him his pod and the truth. Clark eventually accepted it and became the superhero known as Superman. Martha kept track of his new powers as he grew up and also managed the general store in Smallville. At times, Superman would return home to be himself or seek out the counsel of his parents. Jonathan passed away from a fatal heart attack.
