Quote1 And there's one thing I do know, son, and that is you are here for a reason. Quote2
-- Jonathan Kent src

Jonathan Kent was the man who found the star ship that carried Jor-El's son, Kal-El, after it crash-landed in Smallville, Kansas. He soon discovered that young Kal-El was no ordinary child, as the young boy easily lifted up Jonathan's pickup truck after it fell off its jack.

Jonathan taught Kal-El — whom he named Clark, after the middle name of his wife Martha Kent — that he was given special powers for a reason, and not for just showing off in front of his friends as he did when he outran them back to his own house. In Clark's late teens, Jonathan suffered a fatal stroke and died, leaving Martha a widow and his adopted son Clark feeling guilty that, with all his abilities, he was unable to save his father.
