Rocketed from the planet Krypton as a baby, I was found and adopted by a kindly midwestern couple. Years later, while coming home from the theater, my new mother and father were accosted by a burglar and killed instantly. I wandered the streets, an orphan once again, until I found a strange cave in a subway and was granted powers by a wizard who made me speak his name. It was great to be me, except while watching reruns of GOMER PYLE, U.S.M.C. I stopped using the powers after that, which left me weak. While on a science trip, I was bitten by a radioactive spider, and my life changed once again. Things would be wonderful for me...if my girlfriend would stop cheating on me and lying about it.
