Ma and Pa Kent knew “Clark” was special from the moment they saw him.
That the infant had crawled from the wreckage of what appeared to be a spaceship was Clue One.
Clue Two was when he lifted their pickup truck over his head, one-handed. He flipped it casually into the air and giggled when it landed, crushing a cow.

Pa Kent died two weeks later with mysterious burns covering his body.
Damn those X-ray eyes…
