Superman, also known as Clark Kent, is a refugee on Earth from the long-destroyed planet of Krypton. Although he looks completely human, Superman has many amazing powers, including flight, strength, speed, resistance to extremes of cold and heat, invulnerability to physical wounds, and more.

The story describes how Superman is sent away from Krypton before its destruction, arrives at Earth, then grows to maturity and learns of his true identity and destiny. The story then evolves with the relationships Clark/Superman develops with reporter Lois Lane and others at newspaper The Daily Planet, as well as his efforts to repel the criminal plans of evil mastermind Lex Luthor, all while preserving his secret identity from discovery.
