    Jonathan Kent (UE-43)

    For other uses of Superboy, see Superboy (Disambiguation).

    When things got tough... He always had my back. That's what family does.
    — Jonathan Kent to Sophie Cushing[src]

    Jonathan "Jon" Kent is the son of Clark Kent and Lois Lane, the grandson of Sam Lane, and the brother of Jordan Kent.

    Kent was born a hybrid of human and Kryptonian, though possessed no special abilities at all. On the other hand, his brother Jordan inherited their father's superhuman abilities. Kent then assisted his brother to control his abilities using unique and personal methods, making him proficient in using his abilities.

    Kent eventually got jealous over his brother's success and began taking X-Kryptonite, giving himself similar abilities to perform better as a quarterback. His drug usage led to catastrophic results, with the entire football season cancelled and the DOD discovering the dealing of the mineral across the country.

    Biography[edit | hide | hide all]

    Early Life[edit | hide]

    Jordan was born to Clark Kent and Lois Lane in 2006 along with his twin brother, Jordan. Kent was named after his grandfather, Jonathan Kent.[1]

    Kent grew up with his brother and was shown to have athletic potential.[1]

    In one summer, Kent and Jordan went to Smallville and played with Sarah Cushing.[1]

    Life in Metropolis[edit | hide]

    At some point prior to 2020, Kent became the quarterback of his football team and dated Eliza.[1] After moving to Smallville, Eliza broke up with Kent and started dating Jimmy Cutter.[8]

    Kent talking to Eliza

    In late 2020, Kent was talking to Eliza on a video call and was interrupted by his father, who was informed by Lois about Kent's success in the football team.[1]

    Moved to Smallville[edit | hide]

    Danger in the Barn[edit | hide]

    When his grandmother died of a stroke, the Kent family returned to Smallville and attended the funeral. Kent and Jordan later met Sarah once more, introducing themselves and talked about life in Smallville. When Sarah told them about the poor internet connection in the town, Jordan volunteered and Kent followed. As they were in the barn, Sarah asked for Jordan's phone number instead of Kent. Jordan then climbed to the router and fell, with Kent attempting to catch him and trapped under rubble. Luckily, Jordan's powers were activated and was able to shield Kent from the fall, with their father soon rescuing them.[1]

    Soon, Kent was treated by an EMT and returned to his room with his brother.[1]

    Kent and Jordan finding out the truth

    Later that night, Jordan suspected about their survival and was able to convince Kent to search for answers in the next morning. They then entered the wine cellar under the barn, only to find their father's pod from Krypton. The twins then stormed out, demanding answers from their father. Clark then revealed his identity as Superman and made the twins leave in anger.[1]

    Bonfire Incident[edit | hide]

    During the bonfire in Shuster Mines, Jordan kissed Sarah and angered her boyfriend. Kent then arrived and defended his brother, as well as fighting Sean and his friends. However, he was overwhelmed and was unable to fight back until Jordan's heat vision was activated, causing an explosion to stop the fight. Clark the returned to comfort the twins and decided to move to Smallville in order to help Jordan control his powers.[1]

    Jealousy[edit | hide]

    In order to protect people from Jordan's powers, Clark brought Jordan to the Fortress of Solitude, and told Kent to go to school telling Jordan was feeling unwell after the explosion. In the school, Kent and Sarah talked about Jordan and later went to class together, with the latter telling the directions. Kent was then able to trial for the football team. However, he was sabotaged and humiliated by Sean and his friends, causing him to lose the team manual. Frustrated, Kent returned home and argued with his brother as to why Jordan is special while he is not. Lois returned home and told Kent to calm down, and brought the twins to the Cushing barbecue, where Kent and Jordan talked to Sarah once more. Later that night, Kent talked to Eliza on video call and reconciled with his brother.[9]

    Returning home, Kal-El called the kids to the dining room and gave Kent an ELT in case of an emergency, while mentioning that their mother was going to quit the Daily Planet.[9]

    A Surprise Candidate[edit | hide]

    Kent watching Jordan vs. Sean

    The next morning, Kent participated in painting the house and witnessed his father leaving as Superman. Kent and Jordan then returned to school, only to have Sean teasing and bullying Jordan. Kent attempted to defend his brother and was later assisted by his father. Kent later took part in football practice and was informed that Jordan was trialing for it by Tag. Surprisingly, Jordan was able to perform successfully and got the place on the team. Kent later convinced Jordan to stop as he has powers on the field, with the latter insisting. Kent then got angry and asked him why he joined the team, as he hates sports. Kent and Jordan then went to the diner with Sarah until Lana arrived and yelled at Sarah. Kent was able to tell Clark about the situation and told him about Jordan joining the football team, with him disapproving. However, Kent realized how joining the team allowed Jordan to feel happy and overcome his social anxiety disorder. He then convinced Clark to allow Jordan to join, with a condition of Jordan not using his powers.[10]

    Kent in Corey Residence

    With his brother dominating on the field, Kent was benched during Jordan's first game, and Clark was able to see the disappointment on his face. Kent later went to the diner for the team celebration and talked to Tag Harris, who was injured during the bonfire accident and was unable to play in the game. During the team briefing, Tag was scolded by the coach and left the room, with Kent following him and seeing him coming out of the stall without his arm cast. Kent, Jordan and Sarah later attended Corey Wellnitz's party and noticed Tag being weird, with the latter convincing Kent he was fine. The next day, Sam talked to the twins and told them that Clark has a double life, meaning sometimes he cannot be their father and Superman at the same time, telling them to consider when to ask for his help. Due to the speech, Kent and Jordan did not call for their father's help when Tag started to suffer tremendous pain from his vibrating powers. Jordan was slightly injured in an attempt to calm Tag and was later rescued by their father. Later that night, the Kent family and Sam shared the reason the twins did not call Clark, with the twins telling their parents it was Sam's speech.[11]

    Smallville Harvest Festival[edit | hide]

    On the day of the Harvest Fest, Eliza broke up with Kent and left him in frustration. Kent and Jordan then returned home, with the latter telling their parents about the break-up. Clark then talked to Kent with him proposing to leave Smallville along, Clark disapproved and Kent left in anger to the Harvest Fest. Jordan then quickly followed and witnessed Kent taking alcohol from Timmy and Wellnitz. As Jordan goes out on a date with Sarah, Kent interrupted and drunk, humiliating himself and causing Sarah to scold them. Kent later apologized to Jordan for ruining his date and was blamed by his parents for drinking, sending the twins home through share ride. Later that day, Clark and Lois forgave Kent for the first time and gifted a box to him, formerly containing the Sunstone Crystal, in order to remind him of how important family is.[12]
