It's little different than Batman taking advice from Alfred or relying on Lucious Fox's technical expertise.
I have no problem with the role Jor-El plays and I think it's needed in the movies. I hope we see a return of Crowe too. I thought he was a very good Jor. However, I'm absolutely opposed to any mind-wipes. Never again I say...NEVER AGAIN!
