- You may be looking for the Superman comic books.
Superman, the alter-ego of Clark Kent, (TV: The Return of Doctor Mysterio) who was sometimes referred to as Man of Steel, (PROSE: The Shining Man) was a fictional superhero and the main character in the comic book series of the same name. (TV: The Return of Doctor Mysterio)
The last of his kind, Superman crash-landed on Earth as a baby. (AUDIO: 1963: Fanfare for the Common Men) In his later life, Kent worked as a reporter at the Daily Planet, alongside Lois Lane and Jimmy Olsen. His editor was Perry White. (TV: The Return of Doctor Mysterio) At one point, he had a snow fortress. (PROSE: Dear Great Uncle Peter)
Powers and abilities Edit
The Twelfth Doctor read a Superman comic, and revealed to Grant that Superman and Clark Kent were the same person, making the point by drawing Clark Kent's glasses on Superman. When Grant told him that it was known by everyone (in the real world), the Doctor noted that Lois Lane did not know despite being a reporter. (TV: The Return of Doctor Mysterio)
Behind the scenes Edit
As he revealed at the 2016 New York Comic Con, Superman, or more specifically Clark Kent, is Steven Moffat's favourite superhero. In writing the Ghost (Grant) in The Return of Doctor Mysterio, Moffat was particularly influenced by Clark Kent, and took inspiration from the Christopher Reeve Superman films of the 1970s and 1980s.
Superman appears as a playable character in LEGO Dimensions.
