Jor-El was the father of Superman.
Asked by the council to investigate strange phenomenon, occurring all over the planet Krypton, Jor-El discovered that their planet was doomed. He made plans to construct a fleet of spaceships, to rescue their people. Sadly, the council didn't believe him, even laughing at him.
When later Jor-El prepared to launch a model rocket, he had constructed, Krypton began to be destroyed. He begged Lara to take the ship to safety, but she convinced him that their son should be sent instead of her.
