Ugh. I've never thought about that. The more I consider that, the more it pains me to realize that we are going to get Jor-El expecting Kal to become Superman to some extent. Agh.
There's a 90s comic I remember, I think it was a Superboy comic where he got the name Kon-El where he experiences the final hour of Krypton and Jor-El brings up a screen showing Kal-El as a grown man with his shirt off working on a farm. Lara is repulsed by it. But Jor-El says at least he will live and it's for the best.
Maybe even that's too much but damnit he shouldn't be the one who decides for Clark to become Superman.
