Amaze your friends with odd trivia about Superman's name

Superman’s Earth name, Clark, consists of Cl (Chlorine), Ar (Argon) and K (Potassium), the three elements that are directly above Krypton in the periodic table. (Well, K's a bit off to the side.) Just an odd coincidence - - Jerry Siegel used Clark Gable for Clark and Kent Taylor for Kent. More comic book urban legends verified and dispelled here.
