How Did Clark Kent Get His Name and Where Did Superman’s Real Name Come From?

When conceived in 1934, Superman was endowed with the strength of ten men, but he couldn’t fly.

After being turned down by fifteen syndicators, the Man of Steel took to the air and acquired the needed strength to become a super legend.

“Clark” Gable and “Kent” Taylor.
