- I still think I could have squeezed into that thing.
- -- Jor-El
Jor-L, knowing his planet is doomed builds a rocket ship to send his only son Kal-L to the planet Earth before Krypton exploded. The craft landed in Smallville, where it was discovered by John Kent and Mary Kent.
Kryptonian, children are raised in a Birthing Matrix separate from their parents until a certain age is reached. The scientist Jor-El, believing Krypton was doomed, redesigned the chamber for interstellar travel capabilities, and equipped it with a hyper-drive. It was used to send the Last Son of Krypton, young Kal-El to the planet Earth before Krypton exploded. The craft landed in Smallville, where it was discovered by Jonathan Kent and Martha Kent.
The ship Kal-El was placed into as a child was described as having " Brainiac AI" as well as a Kryptonite Rocket Core. Superman then uses his rocket from Krypton that had also been miniaturized with Metropolis to attack Brainiac's mind, which the rocket was able to do since it's primary mission was to protect Kal-El.
