The third suggestion, Kevin, is the name of the actor who played Batman in the animated series from the same producers as Superman, Kevin Conroy.

    • Jonathan: Put that thing back, you don't know where it came from.
      Martha: He's not a thing, Jonathan, he's a baby. A little baby. Who'd put a baby in a spaceship?

      Martha: Oh really?
      Jonathan: Maybe he's one of ours. You think NASA is missing a kid?
