Benoît was born on the planet Krypton and was given the name Kal-El at birth. As a baby, his parents sent him to Earth in a small spaceship moments before Krypton was destroyed in a natural cataclysm. His ship landed in the French countryside, near the town of Amiens. He was found and adopted by farmers Paul and Agnes Jeanson, who named him Benoît Jeanson. Benoît developed various superhuman abilities, such as incredible strength and impervious skin. His foster parents advised him to use his abilities for the benefit of humanity, and he decided to fight for an energy efficiency focusing on power system, and supporting open source momentum. Benoît Jeanson resides in the country side near Paris, where he is a loving husband, father of 4 beautiful girls and support of a local chuch as deputy pastor.
