Yep. Martha died immediately, but Jonathan later died in the hospital.


    I *really* don't like that this New52 idea hanging around.

Agreed. Especially when the Kents played such an integral part in many stories of Superman's past and helped him grow as a character. Without their influence, I gotta wonder how differently those stories played out.

    As usual, SUPERMAN THE MOVIE gets it right.

Even Superman: The Movie had Jonathan Kent die of a heart attack with only Martha left alive.

It's interesting that a hero/villain performs one amazing feat, or use a power they haven't used for 20+ years, and that automatically propels them to a high status despite scans and evidence to the contrary. I don't know what is worse, selective feat picking that has only been done once or twice 20, or more, years ago or ignoring evidence from scans or the lack thereof. We need to stop putting our favorite heroes/villains on pedestals and start putting them where they really belong. But it's evident that people never will because they would rather accuse others of cherry picking feats, when they don't, and being 'morally superior' when they aren't. I guess being honest and as fair as possible only opens one up to being the target of childish accusations and fault finding by those who insist on acting petty and childish. What happened to a good debate between two civil, mature, adults?
