"I grew up in Kansas, General. I'm about as American as it gets."
Superman to Calvin Swanwick[src]

Kansas is a state located in the Midwestern region of the United States of America. It is the location of the town of Smallville, the hometown of Superman.[1]


Situated in the American Great Plains, Kansas became the 34th state on January 29, 1861. Superman's hometown of Smallville was founded by Ezra Small the following year.

The Kryptonian Kal-El, who later became known as Superman, crashed in the town of Smallville as a small child and was raised by Jonathan and Martha Kent.[1]
