As Jor-El once said: "You Will Give The People Of Earth An Ideal To Strive Towards ..." (Man of Steel, 2013). Indeed he did! But nobody even thought about it as being a fashion trademark. So, who is Clark Kent, and why is the name so iconic?
The character was created by writers Jerry Siegel and artist Joe Shuster and debuted in the comic book Action Comics#1, published on 18, 1938. Superman was born on the fictional planet Krypton and was named Kal-El. As a baby, his parents sent him to Earth near a small town called Smallville where he was adopted by farmers who named him Clark Kent. The former started getting supernatural abilities. Johnathan and Martha Kent advised him to use them for the benefit of humanity, which led to the creation of Superman or Man of steel as some may call him.
Clark Kent became an iconic figure in American culture. Many of you recognize him with the letter S on his costume, while others know him as an average guy wearing disguise glasses working as a reporter in The Daily Planet.
The fictional character was played by some of the most handsome actors in Hollywood history, from Christopher Reeve and Dean Cain, to Tom Welling and Brandon Routh; while the most recent portray of the character was played by British Actor, Henry Cavil.
