...I am Ultraman! Nothing can kill me. Nothing can hurt me. Nothing has ever freakin' scratched me. Metropolis is mine. Its people are mine. They love me.
~ Ultraman.

Ultraman is the name of several DC Comics villains, all of whom are evil versions of Superman. The current holder of the title is said to be the Superman alternative from the antimatter-universe, as a resident of the antimatter universe, he is a devoted worshiper of evil and thus in direct opposition to the ideals, his mainstream counterpart stands for.

He's the arch-nemesis of Alexander Luthor Sr.

Ultraman is not to be confused with the clone of Superman that went berserk in Superman, Doomsday, though the two are similar concepts Ultraman is defined as the dark-half of Superman made flesh rather than a simple clone-turned-bad, being born in another universe and thus possessing similar powers to the mainstream Superman but used purely for selfish and/or immoral gain.

Background

Twenty-Five years ago, on the planet Krypton, Jor-Il and his wife Lara were believers in "survival of the strongest" and so, when their world was being destroyed by the Anti-Monitor, the pair sought out the planet's escape rockets and actively murdered anybody trying to escape so that their own infant son Kal-Il could escape the destruction as the strongest child of Krypton and be their best hope for revenge against the cosmic being. As the child was sent away from the doomed planet, Jor-Il, sickened by his son's weak baby form, warned his son to be "the strongest there is", or be "nothing at all".

Traveling toward the planet Earth, little Kal was inundated with his parents' ideology and moralizing, warning him to be the strongest possible being - eschewing all weakness both in himself and in others. His rocket came to a crash in Smallville, Kansas, right through the roof of the home of abusive husband Johnny Kent and his drug-addicted wife Martha.

Discovering the boy eating chunks of Kryptonite rock, the child's first act was to blast away Johnny's hand using heat vision, and then ordered them that they would be his parents from that point on. As "Clark Kent", he stayed with them until he was seven years old, when the couple tried to escape, he killed them and burned their farm to the ground.

Over the following years, Kal-Il took the name "Ultraman" and began his pursuits of taking over Earth by murdering the President of the United States Lee Harvey Oswald and forming the Crime Syndicate, manipulating the coward Harold Jordan into donning the Ring of Volthoom and becoming "Power Ring", and was in turn manipulated by the Amazon, Lois Lane into becoming her husband; a notion he agreed to on the agreement that she bear a child with him as the two strongest beings on the planet.

Other Media

Ultraman has not been seen very often in publishing outside the comics, though other villainous versions of Superman have, such as the rogue Superman from Justice Lords. However, Ultraman himself appeared in the 2010 animated film Justice League: Crisis On Two Earths and the DC Universe Online videogame.

Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths

Ultraman, along with the other leaders of the Crime Syndicate, appear as the secondary antagonist in the animated movie; Justice League: Crisis on Two Earths. He was voiced by Brian Bloom, who voiced him with a stereotypical Mafioso accent.

Smallville

Main article: Clark Luthor

Though Ultraman doesn't appear in the TV show; Smallville, there is an alternate version of Clark Kent known as Clark Luthor, to which fans have considered him as Ultraman. This version was of Clark was adopted by the Luthor Family instead of the Kents. He was also taught to never hold back with his powers. As a result, Clark Luthor could use other powers that Clark Kent can't use, became Earth 2's most dangerous supervillain, and even killed his adopted brother Lex Luthor.

Quotes

Did you forget who I am? How I got to be the boss of bosses? I'm here, because I'm the baddest of the bad. Anybody who ever stood in my way is dead! Everybody!
~ Ultraman to Lex Luthor.

Trivia

  • Despite preceding his existence by four years, this Ultraman is not to be confused with the Japanese superhero created by Eiji Tsuburaya and Toru Narita in 1966 who shares a similar name.
  • In "JLA: Earth 2", Ultraman was a human astronaut who gotten his powers after being experimented on by aliens (presumably Kryptonians of the Antimatter Universe).
  • Traditionally, Kryptonians are only affected by Kryptonite of their own native universe. This doesn't seem the case for Kal-Il since he can be empowered by the Kryptonite of both his home universe and the Prime universe.
  • Antimatter Kent and Earth Three Kal-El wears an upside down version of the main Superman's five-sided shield and usually does not wear red boots.
