Jonathan Kent was married to Martha Kent and together they adopted a baby they found on a mysterious ship. They named the boy Clark Kent, but a few years later, when Clark was still a teenager, Mr. and Mrs. Kent were murdered by a mugger who tried to stole from their shop. Jonathan managed to live a few moments after the attack and he was carried by Superboy to a nearby hospital. On his last moments, Jonathan tried to tell the truth about his alien heritage to Clark, but he passed away before he could explain the whole truth.
