Jor-El was a Kryptonian scientist and the father of Superman.

Jor-El was convinced the planet would be destroyed in a great catastrophe, but the Kryptonian Science Council ignored him. He was expelled. Six months later, Jor-El was proven right. Unfortunately, noone was prepared to evacuate the population and Jor-El and Lara only had one prototype spaceship. They used it to send their son Kal-El to Earth.[1]
