"Jonathan really has your eyes, huh?"
"I'll take it so long as he has your everything else."
Lois Lane and Clark Kent on their son, Jonathan Kent[src]

Jonathan Kent (born 2019) is the son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, the first cousin once removed of Kara Danvers, the nephew of Lucy Lane, and the grandson of the late Jor-El, the late Lara Van-El, and Sam Lane. He is also the adoptive grandson of "Ma" and "Pa" Kent.


Original multiverse

Early life

Jonathan Kent was born in 2019 in Argo City to Clark Kent and Lois Lane;[1] who were moved there as they feared that the pregnancy would strain Lois's health the longer they stayed on Earth.[2]

Anti-Monitor Crisis

Jon with his parents in Argo.

Clark and Lois, who were enjoying their peaceful time with their son in Argo City, received a holographic message from Kara Danvers, warning them of the city's impending destruction by antimatter. They evacuated John to his pod with help from Alura Zor-El.

Jonathan's pod took off just seconds before the city perished. Though his evacuation was successful, the antimatter knocked Jonathan's pod off-course, which in turn landed him on Earth-16. Lois traveled there with Querl Dox and Sara Lance in tow, and found Johnathan inside the Arrowcave, where he had been rescued by Oliver Queen. Lois, Jonathan, Brainy, and Sara then returned to Earth-38.

Jonathan in his mother's arms.

Soon after, they evacuated to Earth-1 just before Earth-38 was destroyed by the antimatter. Lois and Jonathan reunited with Clark just before Oliver Queen died.[1]

While Clark and Lois ventured the multiverse in search for the Paragon of Truth, they left Jonathan in the care of Mick Rory from Earth-74,

who is revealed to be surprisingly good with children. Mick decided to read his own novel, Caged Passion, to the baby in order to calm him down. Ray Palmer commented on how the book doesn't seem too "kid-friendly", to which Mick objected, claiming that Jonathan does "love" it.

After Lois and Clark returned to the Earth-74 Waverider with the Clark Kent of Earth-96, he met his counterpart's son, commenting he looked a lot like his own son, Jason.[3]

Later Jonathan, as well as everyone in the multiverse except for the seven Paragons, was killed in an antimatter wave by the Anti-Monitor on December 10, 2019,[4] only to be restored a month later, after the Paragons and the Spectre created a new universe.[5]

New multiverse

"Clark, I need you to get to Metropolis now; it's the boys."
"The boys?
Lois Lane and Clark Kent[src]

As a result from the merging of their universe with Earth-1 and Earth-TUD5, the timeline was slightly changed, resulting in Lois and Clark having more than one son.[6]

Powers and abilities


  • Human-Kryptonian hybrid physiology: Because of Jonathan's hybrid human/Kryptonian genetic structure under the effects of a "yellow" sun, he possesses the same potential powers as an average Kryptonian. Though he is still a baby, no powers have been shown yet.

Behind the scenes

  • In the DC Comics, Jonathan Samuel Kent is the son of Superman and Lois Lane, who was born during the Convergence storyline.
  • Clark and Lois had a son who appeared twice in Superman live-action media. Lois and Clark: The New Adventures of Superman where someone delivers a child to Clark and Lois in the series finale, and Superman Returns where their son Jason appeared in the movie.
    • Clark Kent from Earth-96 even notes how similar the two look, implying that despite the different appearances of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, Jason and Jonathan may still be doppelgangers.
