Lara Lor-Van was the mother of Superman.


Lara possessed no superhuman powers while living under a red sun. Had she existed on a world revolving around a yellow sun, she would have developed physical attributes equitable to that of Superman.


  • This version of Lara Lor-Van, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths event and later restored following the rebirth of the infinite Multiverse during the Dark Crisis of 2022-2023. Even though other versions of the character may have appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
  • Lara Lor-Van is seldom referred with her surname, because (like most Kryptonian women) she dropped her surname and was known just as 'Lara' once she was married.
