Biography Edit

While on a car trip with her husband, Sarah began hearing a strange sound and saw an alien rocket land. Her husband pulled an infant out of the rocket, before it was destroyed. Deciding to keep the child and raise it as their own, they named the boy "Clark". While Clark grew up, Sarah did her best to help him with his developing powers. And explained the boy's origin to him.

After the death of Eben, Sarah convinced Clark to move to Metropolis and use his powers to help others. She even made a costume out of the blankets, that Clark had been wrapped in, when she and Eben found him. [3]
