Lara was a native of the planet Krypton, a librarian who married the scientist Jor-L. It was early in her married life that the planet Krypton began to experience extreme internal disruptions. Fearing the worst, Jor-L and his brother Zor-L both began developing an escape rocket. However Jor-L design was not really beyond the test phase of his interplanetary rocket when the eruptions began to become too regular and intense. Only days earlier Lara gave birth to their son Kal-L.
Seeing the eruptions causing the destruction of the main city on Krypton, Jor-L and Lara lept away to Jor-L secret lab where his experimental rocket was stored. Seeing the destruction of their planet had begun Jor-L informed Lara of his plans to send her and newly borne Kal-L to the observed planet Sol III in a different galazy.
Fearing the rocket would have a better chance with only the weight and support for only Kal-L, Lara decided to remain with her husband. Both Jor-L and Lara remained on the exploding Krpyton while Kal-L was rocketed to the distant plent where he would grow up in the name of Clark Kent and costumed identity of Superman.

- This version of Lara, including all history and corresponding appearances, was erased from existence following the collapse of the original Multiverse in the 1985–86 Crisis on Infinite Earths limited series. Even though versions of the character may have since appeared, this information does not apply to those versions.
- Some stories refer to Lara as Lora. This is presumably a difference in how her Kryptonian name is transcribed into English, and not a spelling error per se.
