"That ship... brought me to Earth. Landed here in Smallville, right in those cornfields over there. I was sent here when my planet... Krypton, was destroyed."
Clark Kent to his sons, Jonathan and Jordan[src]

Kal-El's pod is the pod Kal-El used to escape Krypton.


After his homeworld, Krypton, was destroyed, baby Kal-El was rocketed off to Earth inside the pod. His pod then crash-landed in Smallville, where farmers Jonathan and Martha Kent found him.

When the Kent family returned to Smallville to arrange the funeral of Martha, Clark's children Jonathan and Jordan Kent investigated the Kent Farm's barn. After finding a trapdoor that led to a cellar, the two boys uncovered the pod as Jordan discovered a mysterious stone within the ship.[1]
