Also, do you know if there are any comic book shops In your location? That would be a help. There are several collections of Superman stories available, and the character has existed in several different versions over the years (he has been around since 1938, after all). Superman: Birthright might be a good place to start, as it tells the current version of Superman's origin.

And Superman isn't gory at all -- he's a positive, peaceful kind of guy.

But despite this, he does have both guts and brains.

I highly suggest picking up a copy of Superman: Birthright.  Sounds to me like this is just what you need.  It fits right in with Smallville, has a lot of fantastic origin stuff, and incorporates the best bits from all the various Superman origin stories.
