Clark Kent is the civilian identity of well known hero, Superman.

Biography

As a child, prior to being known as Superman, Clark Kent grew up in the Kent Farm under an unnamed father and mother Martha Kent. At some point during this time, Clark also befriended Lionel Luthor's son, Lex.[1]

When Hank Hall, Dawn Granger, and Jason Todd arrived to help stop Trigon, Kory Anders and Donna Troy informed them that there was a barrier that prevented them from entering. Angry, Hank said that Rachel should have told them to get Superman instead of Jason. After Trigon was defeated, Dick Grayson took Jason, Rachel, and Gar Logan to an unknown location. Gar asked if they were going to meet Batman, to which Dick replied "no" and jokingly said they were going to meet Superman.[2]

Lex acquired some of Superman's DNA to try and clone him. However, Lex was unable to stabilize the alien DNA. Eve Watson told him that he would have to use human DNA to do this, so Lex used his own. The resulting clone was called Subject 13.[1]

Alternative realities

Trigon's false reality

In Dick Grayson's illusion conjured by Trigon, Superman was acquainted with Bruce Wayne, but following Dick's departure as Bruce's protégé, Superman and Bruce had a falling out.[3]

Trivia

  • Superman and Batman's "falling out" in the fake reality is a reference to the film Batman V Superman: Dawn of Justice, which features the two heroes fighting. It could also be a reference to the classic comic story the Dark Knight Returns, which inspired the above film.
  • In many continuities, Superman is a member of the Justice League. Whether or not that holds true in the Titans TV show is yet to be confirmed.

Behind the scenes

  • In the DC comics, Superman is Kal-El the last survivor of Krypton, and the secret identity of news reporter Clark Kent. As a superhero, he is a member of the Justice League, alongside Batman.
  • Superman's existence was alluded to in "Hank and Dawn" when an outline of him appeared on the cover of a magazine and confirmed in "Trigon" when he was mentioned by both Hank Hall and Dick Grayson.
