Notes on Character:

Martha Clark was born and raised in Metropolis. Her father's name is William Clark. Little is known about her childhood or teenage years. She attended Metropolis University and met her future husband Jonathan Kent while taking a finance class. Martha was immediately attracted to Jonathan, and, although she was the official note-taker for the class, she asked Jonathan for his notes, so that she could start a conversation. He did not ask her her name. He also never knew that she really didn't need the notes. Later, he asked Martha's father for her hand in marriage, and Mr. Clark refused. Jonathan hit him, and has never spoken to him since. Martha's father is not aware of Clark's abilities.
Jonathan and Martha manage the Kent Farm together, and they grow organic produce.
On the day of the meteor shower, Jonathan and Martha found 4-year old Clark in the cornfields with his spaceship. They took the young boy with them, and hid the spaceship in the back of their truck. On their way home, the came across Lionel Luthor, who asked them for their help, because his son, Lex, was unconscious, having been hit by the meteor shower. Jonathan hid the spaceship in the farm's storm cellar.
Martha, who was unable to have children, took care of Clark, and later, when Sheriff Ethan visited the Kent Farm, he saw and inquired about the little boy. Put on the spot, Martha lied and claimed that they just adopted him. Martha and Jonathan then needed to quickly make the story true, and enlisted the help of Lionel Luthor, owner of an adoption agency, to falsify adoption papers. Lionel drew up the papers but required that Jonathan go to Pete Ross' father and convince him to sell the Ross Creamed Corn Factory to Lionel.
Her father now lives in Coast City and is an executive attorney. They had not spoken for twenty years, but Martha and Jonathan swallowed their pride and contacted him recently, because the farm was running the risk of going under, and they needed his financial support. It was the first time that Clark met his grandfather.
Martha is now working for Lionel Luthor as his assistant. Jonathan is not happy with this, but Martha enjoys the responsibilities of the position. Although it was always thought that Martha could not have children, she recently found out she is pregnant.
