An official clip from My Adventures With Superman shows how Clark Kent first learned about his Kryptonian heritage.
Shared by DC ahead of My Adventures With Superman’s premiere on Adult Swim, the clip opens with Ma and Pa Kent digging in a Kansas cornfield to reveal the ship that brought Clark to Earth. They present the alien tech to Clark, who had apparently been asking about where he really came from. Once the young Clark steps aboard, the ship roars to life. He is then greeted by a hologram of his birth father, Jor-El. When the opening ship threatens to consume his adoptive parents, Clark makes the save.
