Lara was the daughter of Sul-Van, who was less than supportive of Jor-El's radical ideas. Lara, on the other hand, loved her husband. She agreed to send off their baby son into space, so that at least some of Krypton's population might survive its destruction. She also deeply loved Jor-El as when he suggested letting Lara go with Kal-El to be with him, Lara chose to stay with her husband and kissed him as Kal-El's ship left and Krypton crumbled around them.
To be added
- In the comics Lara is the daughter of Lor-Van not Sul-Van. Therefore her name from the comics is Lara Lor-Van.
