Not really.Yes Jorel specifically sends Kalel into a planet with a yellow sun becuse he knows the powers of the sun will protect him-its a means to ensure survival.Thats all what Jorels intentions were about-ensuring the survival of his son.He did not plan for his son to become some kind of saviour,there is no prophecy involved, no destiny-he simply hopes for the best.

Kal becaomes Superman beacuse of the Kents teachings.End of.Jorel guiding clark on the path to be a hero shld never be used-it shld be the kents-see Superman Earth one to get an idea for a good example on this.
