|“||I feel like I live in a world made out of cardboard. Always taking constant care not to break something. To break someone. Never allowing myself to lose control, even for a moment, or someone could die. But you can take it, can't you, big man? What we have here is a rare opportunity for me to cut loose, and show you just how powerful I really am!||„|
|~ Superman to Darkseid|
Kal-El (adopted name Clark Kent), AKA Superman, is a superhero from DC Comics. He appeared in the 25th episode and Season 1 Finale of DEATH BATTLE!, Goku VS Superman, and the Rematch in the 50th episode, where he fought against Son Goku from the Dragon Ball series.
Kal-El was sent to Earth in a rocket by his father Jor-El to escape the destruction of Krypton. He was raised by Jonathon and Martha Kent in Smallville after they stumble upon his rocket and is given the name Clark Kent.
Upon learning of his heritage, he decided to use his powers granted to him by Earth's yellow sun to protect his home planet as the champion of justice known as Superman. In his civilian identity, he works as a reporter for the Metropolis Daily Planet.
