Notes on Character:

Jonathan Kent was born and raised in Smallville. His father's name was Hiram Kent. He played football from Smallville High. While in school, he dated Nell Potter, Lana Lang's aunt. After high school, he attended Metropolis University, where he met his future wife, Martha Clark, 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. Jonathan had no choice, but always regretted it, and feels responsible for the Luthor's foothold in Smallville.
Jonathan is stubborn and prideful, but loves his family dearly, and would do anything to keep prying eyes away from Clark and his abilities. In order to protect his son's secret, he did was against Clark joining the football team. He also built a "Fortress of Solitude" for Clark in the barn, so that he could stay away from most normal high school activities.
