Lora Lor - Van (Earth-2)

Search for 'Lora Lor - Van (Earth-2)' on Amazon


Bio:
Wife of Jor-L, mother of Superman of Earth-2.

Notes:
Extremely retroactively—and inconsistently—the name "Lora" has been used to designate the Earth 2 version of the character from "Lara", the Earth 1 copy. However, these distinctions are next-to-meaningless, as the character was almost always used as little more than an extra. No distinction other than this fluctuating vowel can really be found between the two characters

In the same way that Infinite Crisis played up the few early issues of Superman and Action which had the Earth 2 Clark Kent working for theDaily Star—when, in fact, he worked for the Daily Planet for the bulk of his appearances—some late 20th/eartly 21st century authors have picked up on the name "Lora" from one very early newspaper strip story. But, in practice, she was known as "Lara" from her first comic book appearance.

Thus we very relucantly use "Lora" as the Earth-2 counterpart to "Lara", with the firm understanding that "Lora" is pretty much of a 21st-century retcon to early 20th century stories. It should further be pointed out that "Lor-Van" was not established in any story as the last name of this Earth's "mother of Kal-El". However, it was not specifically contradicted, either. She was always known simply by her first name—of whichever spelling the letterer wanted to use.
