Jonathan and Martha Kent, residents of Smallville, Kansas, lived on the Kent family farm which remained unchanged since about 1871. On late ride back home, the couple witnessed Kal-El's pod land. Martha found the baby and the Kents 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 Kents realized it was time to show him his pod and the truth. Clark eventually accepted it and became the superhero known as Superman. At times, Superman would return home to be himself or seek out the counsel of his parents.

When Superman discovered the lone survivor of Argos, a neighboring planet of Krypton, he decided it would be best if she were raised in the same environment with the Kent's. In her teens, Kara followed in her 'cousin's' footsteps and became a superhero. She still has her own room in the Kents home and lives there between working for the Justice League Unlimited.

Recently, Clark brought along J'onn Jonzz along for Christmas. The Kent's welcomed J'onn into their home and along with the rest of Smallville, helped J'onn understand the meaning of Christmas.
