Confirmed characters

  • Jonathan Kent: A 13-year-old Caucasian boy, who is well on his way to becoming a physical specimen. Jonathan is a clean-cut, modest and kind-hearted, with an aw-shucks attitude that somehow doesn't seem dated. He is also a three-sport athlete who's already garnering attention from college and pro-scouts.[7] He and his twin brother don't know that their father is Superman.[3]
  • Jordan Kent: Also 13-years old and Caucasian, but has a young Leonardo DiCaprio quality and an inherent darkness to him. Jordan is wildly intelligent, but his mercurial temperament and social anxiety limits his interactions with individuals. Consequently, he spends most of his free time playing video games.[7] He and his twin brother don't know that their father is Superman.[3]
  • Martha Kent: She is living alone at the farm, where she raised Clark in Smallville.[3]
