Martha Kent was the wife of Jonathan Kent and the adoptive mother of Clark Kent, aka, Superboy (later Superman). She helped her husband run the Kent Farm, then later the Kent General Store. Her maiden name was Martha Clark, and Clark Kent's first name is taken from this. Her parents' names were Henry and Willa Clark.
When Clark Kent was in his early twenties, Martha and Jonathan went on a vacation in the Caribbean where they discovered a buried treasure chest. Opening the chest released a virulent alien micro-organism that infected both of them. Young Clark tried to save them, but failed. Both Martha and Jonathan passed away at the same time.
