Set in the "real world," Superman: Secret Identity examines the life of a young Kansas man with the unfortunate name of Clark Kent. All Clark wants to be is a writer, but his daily life is filled with the taunts and jibes of his peers, comparing him to that other Clark Kent -- the one with super-powers. "Hey Clark, where's your X-ray vision? How come you can't fly?" Until one day when Clark awakens to discover that he can fly, that he does in fact have super-strength! But where did these powers come from and what will he do with them?
