The issue of Superman fathering a child has been one of some debate. Some writers have attempted to establish Kryptonian and Terran DNA as incompatible (in Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, for example). Others have skirted over the details and written stories that have no problem with the idea of a Kryptonian and human having a biological offspring.
Superman has also fathered children with women of other races. Kryptonian primarily, but also other super-powered beings such as Wonder Woman. And, although she was unsuccessful, Maxima (an Almeracian), tried for years to make Superman her mate with strong suggestions that she carry his child.
This article serves to provide a list of instances in which Superman has been depicted as a father. The means by which include biological procreation, assisted fertilization, and adoption within the broad scope of imaginary stories, alternate realities, possible futures, and outright hoaxes. For Superman's lineage beyond his children, see the article about Superman's Descendants. The page covering Superman Clones may also be of interest.
