Dear son. My name is Jor-El. I am here to tell you about the (stifled laughter) explosion of our planet Krypton (stifled laughter). You are the only survivor. I have left you a suit that you will wear when you conquer whatever world you may land on. Good bye son.

–His message upon sending Superman away

Jor-El is the most renowned scientist in all of Krypton. He is also a deadbeat dad that doesn't care about his son and despises his ex-wife.



Jor-El was going about his day as normal when his wife informed him that she was pregnant. Jor-El thought that was stupid, so he build a rocket and blasted the baby off to another planet. He, along with all of the other Kryptonians, were presumed dead because of the fabricated message he sent with his son.
