Superman is the first hero to have publicly declared himself. That isn’t to say he’s the first person to be performing superheroics, but he’s certainly a big shiny example of that. This would have been approximately two years ago as of the start of the game. In that times he’s stopped a few experiments gone wrong in Metropolis and helped out with natural disasters and human suffering (specifically in several civil wars) the world over. He’s generally seen as a force for good, although that doesn’t mean everybody trusts him. He’s also declared that his in point of fact an alien; suffice to say that has some people wondering what he’s actually up to (like Lex Luthor, and other assorted nasty types).
Clark is still the farm boy from Kansas. He still works at the Daily Planet, in the two years he’s been there he went from copy editor to the Planet’s primary science reporter. Instead of being kind of clumsy and buffoonish Clark is more nerdy and geek like. He likes RPGs, Discovery Channel, and finds NASA the best thing since sliced bread (this despite the fact that he can fly to Mars himself, and did once right after graduating high school, Martha and Johnathan still have the handful of sand he brought home). He acts unsure of himself and his own opinions or even what he knows, despite the fact he’s almost always right. The science beat is what puts him onto Luthor being into shady stuff.
Clark graduated from the University of Kansas with a major in English and a minor in journalism. After graduating Clark traveled through much of Europe, Asia and Africa hoping to find his place in the world. He backpacked across Europe, took the Trans-Siberian Railroad from Moscow to Beijing and walked the length of the Great Wall of China. During his travels in Africa Clark joined the Peace Corps and took a position teaching English to school children. Clark was a natural born teacher, he was kind and showed them respect that many of them had never known. He finally thought he’d found his calling, he would be a teacher. He could return to Smallville, and teach English in high school. That all ended when civil war rolled through the village, Clark did his best to stop the villagres from being hurt but even a man able to move faster than a speeding bullet can’t move faster than all of them. The guerrillas took nearly two dozen children with them when they fled.
Clark followed the guerrillas that had attacked the village. There was nothing that they could do to stop his white hot fury. He turned guns into slag, crushed armoured vehicles with is bare hands, and he finally found their leader. He could have killed the man, but he didn’t. He held the life of the man in his grasp and all he could think of was having to tell his father that he killed a man in revenge. Johnathan Kent would have said a man deserves a second chance, that even monsters have souls. Johnathan Kent saved the life of a monster that day, and continues to save the life of monsters every day.
As the last surviving Kryptonian Clark possesses incredible powers while under the light of a yellow star. He has exceptional strength and is more than capable of hauling a fully equipped and deployed Nimitz-class aircraft carrier out of the water. Superman is virtually immune to most weapon fire and is capable of withstanding direct strikes from a tank cannon.
