Could you please check these two sentences, please?

1) Water chute and spring board don't have the same meaning, but I think I can use them both with "dive into the water".
2) Superman was both a superhero endowed with superpowers and a shy and insecure newspaper reporter.
He was named (called, are they synonyms?) Clerk by the Kent familiy, who adopted him afer he was sent to earth from the planet Krypton.
