Jor-El is a Kryptonian scientist, the husband of Lara Lor-Van and father of Kal-El (Superman). He discovered and preached about the impending doom of his planet, to no avail. El realized that his prediction about the planet exploding had days at most, not months to come true and he had got the mathematical calculation wrong about the time left. He managed to develop a serum that would allow his still unborn son to leave the planet, and treated Kal-El before placing the matrix chamber in a rocket ship. Jor-El insisted that it would be an ideal environment for their son to his wife despite her misgivings, and pointed out that under Earth’s yellow sun, their son would be virtually a god among men. Kal-El was saved, and Jor-El and Lara spent their last moments together before the planet exploded.
As a product of Eugenics, Jor-El was in perfect physical shape. His strength level was equitable to that of an athletic, male Kryptonian despite the lack of any regular exercise.
Physically, Jor-El is usually portrayed as closely resembling his son Kal-El/Superman.
After constructing his Fortress of Solitude, Superman honored his deceased biological parents with a statue of Jor-El and Lara holding up a globe of Krypton.
