Clark Kent is a Kryptonian reporter living on Metropolis, Earth, although most people who know him believe him to be just another Earthling. When he takes off his glasses and flies over the city, displaying his phenomenal powers, they call him Superman, though it's currently not known if Nietzsche would have approved of that moniker.

The fact that a mere pair of glasses is enough to conceal the identity of one of the most powerful beings on the planet is puzzling to some people, although it does in fact fit in quite neatly with the oft-documented tendency of intelligent life to ignore that which they cannot explain.
