From Simple English Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Jor-El was a fictional Superman character who appears in the DC Comics universe and was the father of Superman who died in the planet of Krypton when it was destroyed. He knew his planet would be destroyed but when he told his leaders, they did not listen try or stop the destruction since they did not believe it was true. So he built a rocket and sent superman to earth so superman would not die when the planet was destroyed. Years later an artificial intelligence that Jor-El created helped his son to learn the true power he holds and helps him become Superman. He was married to Lara Lor-Van.
