Lara Sul-Van was the mother of Superman.
Lara was the daughter of Sul-Van and husband of Jor-El. While Sul-Van was less than supportive of Jor-El's radical ideas, Lara on the other hand, loved her husband. When it became obvious that Krypton's destruction was inevitable she agreed to send off their infant son into space, so that at least some of Krypton's population might survive its destruction. Her devotion was such that Lara chose to remain by her husbands side even when Jor-El attempted to modify the escape craft for her to leave as well. She was subsequently killed in the planet's ensuing explosion.
