Origin

Jonathan Kent, married to Martha Kent, is the adoptive father of Clark Kent, who is better known as Superman. Before his recent death, he was a rural farmer in Kansas. He is frequently referred to as Pa Kent within the comics. Jonathan Kent and his wife Martha found Kal-El’s rocket after it crashed on earth and took him in as their own son. They raised their son to have strong moral values and to hide his abilities from the world for fear that he would be taken away and experimented on like a lab rat. The first time Jonathan Kent died when Superman/Clark died after his battle with Doomsday, Jonathan also died in the Brainiac story arc and helped to guide his son back to the world of the living.

Creation

Johnathan Kent was created by Jerry Siegel and Joe Shuster for use in DC Comics. His first appearance came in Superman #1 which was released in 1939.
