2009-03-02 05:24:18 ccl080673 Bio While there was some early confusion over his name, "Jonathan Kent" was settled on firmly in Adventure Comics #149 in February 1950, and there's been no dispute since about it since. Because he died relatively early in Earth 2's timeline, almost every pre-Crisis appearance of a character purporting to be "Pa Kent" can be said to be this character. Indeed the bulk of Pa Kent's appearances occurred in the pages of Superboy stories, which is an automatic clue that the story took place on Earth 1. Superboy and Adventure comics often detailed the extent to which Jonathan was a mentor for his young son, showing him actively help young Clark learn how to use each of his powers, as well as helping with the creation of the "bumbling" Clark persona and instilling core moral values into his son.

Interestingly this version of the character died, like his Earth 2 counterpart, after his wife, Martha Clark Kent. In other words, this notion of Pa Kent dying of a heart attack and leaving behind a widowed Ma Kent is an entire contrivance of Superman: The Movie and Smallville. What separates the Earth 1 and 2 Kent deaths from each other is that on Earth 1, Jonathan and Martha Kent expired within (apparently) days of each other, as a result of contracting the same disease. Quite unlike the post-Crisis Earth, both parents died soon after Clark graduated from high school, making them unavailable to the Superman stories of the Silver and Bronze Ages.

Interestingly this version of the character died after his wife, Martha Clark Kent (I)--which goes against the traditional (movie) view that Jonathan died of a heart attack, leaving behind a widow. Nevertheless, both parents died soon after Clark graduated from high school, making them unavailable to the Superman stories of the age.
