At some point in time, Clark Kent attended the school science fair with his adopted father Jonathan Kent. He won first prize during the event, a moment which was memorialized with a photo of him and Jonathan. The photo was later included in an album that his adopted mother Martha kept. When he was 9 years old, Clark Kent attended Ms. Rampling's class. One day in class, his enhanced senses manifested and he began to hear a wide variety of noises, as well as see through layers of matter, which overwhelmed Clark enough to run out of class and hide in a nearby janitor's closet. Martha was called and was able to calm Clark and help him to control his new ability.
