Explanation of the conversion: This version of Superman is loosely based on the George Reeves Superman from the television show The Adventurers of Superman. He was no where near as powerful as the later comic book or movie Supermen, but is a powerful force for good. The Presence based on his costume are because he really does come off as more confident and awe inspiring in costume then as Clark. His flight is entirely non-combat based because he only uses it to travel from one place to another. Once he's where he's going he always proceeds on foot. His Multipower requires Concentration. Having Enhanced Senses inside the Multipower in this way requires special Game Master permission. The Duplication power causes Superman to loose his Armor and as well as causing his Strength and Physical Defense to lower. The duplicate has the same statistics as the lowered ones of the original Superman and had no Multipower.

History: Kal-El is the last son of the doomed planet Krypton. Sent as a baby to Earth in a rocket built by his parents, he landed near a small Kansas farm where he was found by the Kents. Since the Kents were unable to have children, they kept the baby and raised him as their own, calling him Clark. As Clark grew up he was instilled with the Kent's sense of responsibility and justice. He also developed amazing powers and strength, which he kept a secret to all but his adopted parents. When he grew up he moved to the city of Metropolis and became a reporter for the Daily Planet newspaper. There he met fellow reporter Lois Lane and young photographer Jimmy Olsen. The three became a loosely knit team reporting for the Planet and were often sent after stories together. With Clark's coming to the big city there also came his heroic alter identity of Superman, saving the people of Metropolis from a variety of wrong doers and becoming an icon of truth, justice and the American way.

Trivia: In the 1952 Adventures of Superman television series, the part of Superman is played by actor George Reeves.

Powers: Superman is faster then a speeding bullet, more powerful then a locomotive and able to leap tall buildings in a single bound. More accurately he is tremendously strong, is able to fly at supersonic speeds, and is nearly impervious to harm, although he can be shaken up by massive attacks. He can see through most substances, except lead. He can hear ultrasonic sounds and has telescopic vision. He can survive in almost any environment and has proved immune to conventional radio activity. Superman has displayed the ability to phase through solid matter and to spilt himself into two copies, who are half as strong as the original. He can tell if someone is lying be feeling their pulse like a polygraph machine.

Superman is vulnerable to the strange space substance called kryptonite.
