Full Answer

It was this same couple that taught Superman to use his extraordinary super-powers of strength, flight, superhuman hearing and X-ray vision for a morally righteous cause.

His enemies are those of the public at large — greedy corporate oligarchs like Lex Luthor — and he combats these not only as Superman, or Kal-El, but as Clark Kent the reporter as well.
