Just before the impending destruction of their home planet, Krypton, Jor-El and Lara lovingly place their baby son into a space ship and send him to a far away planet where he will grow up to a great destiny.
Kal-El crash lands in a small town called Smallville and the infant is discovered by a human couple, Jonathon and Martha Kent. The couple decide to keep the child as if he were their own. Giving him the human name, Clark Kent, they raise him with great love and great kindness, but they soon discover he is not like normal children. Clark, powered by Earth’s yellow sun, has superhuman speed, strength, hearing, super breath, heat and x-ray vision, the ability to fly and is invulnerable, except to radioactive pieces of his home planet, Kryptonite.
Clark faces his destiny, helped out by the wisdom of his birth father living on through the fortress of solitude, and puts on a blue suit with a red cape and proudly wears the House of El crest on his chest, the S shape prompts Lois Lane to give him his title “Superman”.
The House of El crest has also been worn by Supergirl, Superboy and Krypto.
Onto the nails!!
For this nail design, I painted my nails with Orly’s Royal blue.
Using a short nail art brush, I painted the yellow diamond shape with China Glaze’s Solar Power and allowed to dry. Next I painted an outline for the diamond shape and a small S with Barry M’s Bright Red.
Not bad for my first ever free-hand design!
