After fifty years Clark Kent has handed in his notice at 'The Daily Planet'. The bespectacled farmers son has written a column on nature for the last thirty years but started out in the newsroom. Kent was never very lucky on the news desk and always seemed to just miss out on big scoops to Lois Lane.
Many people often marvel at the fact that Clark Kent was never able to get a story about Superman. Whenever the Man of Steel was around Kent seemed to vanish. It soon emerged that Kent was alien-phobic. This came from his grandfather a noted Klansman who instilled a fear of aliens in the young Clark who grew up not knowing the difference between a man who entered the US illegally and an extra terrestrial.
Kent's column 'Farming Digest' will finish at the end of the month when 'The Daily Planet' follows 'Newsweek' and goes print free. The paper was bought out by LexCorp in June and is switching focus to be a business oriented subscription website.
The boyish looking Kent said in his last column "I am sad to leave the Planet after all of these years. I hope that you will all join me in the future."
Far from putting his feet up Kent will join the Night Review team at German paper 'B.Z Berlin'.
