Yeah, this was pretty much what Jor El suggested they do in the animated series to save Krypton.

Of course, there they had Brainiac sabotaging Jor El's efforts to save the world, but not so much in the canon universe, so there's no real reason NOT to do that.

They were going to do it in the New 52, but the criminals im the Phantom Zone were about to attack Jor-El and his family, which led to Krypto attacking them

So I guess that means the Phantom Zone works differently in the DCNU than it used to.

Cause, IIRC, you exist as a disembodied ghost in the Phantom Zone (Hence the name) and you can't harm or interact with anyone, even other inmates (Which is why they stuck Mon El in there when he got lead poisoning. The worst the Inmates could do was taunt him, then when finally did get out, he went back one last time to tell the criminals to go eff themselves.)

I get that this is for kids (and for the most part Superman Family Adventures has been one of, if not the best, Superman titles that DC is publishing), but this just feels so cheap. This just doesn't send a good message to kids, in my opinion. Kids can accept death people. Heck, we see it all the time in Disney movies for crying out loud. I really hope that this is a fake-out by one of Superman's enemies (presumably Brainiac or Zod). Oh well, still better than Lobdell's Superman.

I suspect this is going to be a trick? An impersonation from Faora/Ursa/crossdressing Zod/Other in the Phantom Zone or the like?

No, I think this actually might be legit. I mean so far every evil character introduced so far, in Superman Family Adventures, always shows signs of being evil. Plus I just googled it, and Superman Family Adventures Faora and/or Ursa has bright red hair; not brown hair.

Krypton developed Phantom Zone technology but has no concept of what wigs are? ;)

Turns out that Earth is the only planet in the universe to think up wigs and hair dye. That's what makes humanity so special.

Reminds me of Elliot S Maggin's "Superman: Last Son of Krypton", which had Krypton and Earth are the only planets where living beings have philtrums.

Also that Earth was best known in the galaxy as being the place where the best photocopiers were made. Xerox produced photocopiers were the most efficient ever developed on any known world. :)

I dunno... Notice how holographic Jor-El is a lot older than the one in the recording? That would imply that he lived much longer.

Also, nice nod to "Superman 2" with the recitation of Joyce Kilmer's "Trees"

IIRC When Luthor breaks into the Fortress in S2, he uses the crystal console thingie and the first thing that putting one of the crystals in does is trigger a holographic image of a Kryptonian reciting "Trees".

Her thinking Connor is Clark for a moment is pretty cute.
However, Superman being raised by the Kents is much more important than his ties to Krypton imo, so I think this is probably a setup for Lara to be revealed as either an imposter or for her to be forced back into the Phantom Zone. In the short term though it could be fun to see her do some interacting, even if I do think it would be goofy and kind of wrong to keep her around in the long term.

Isn't this in the universe where Slade and Trigon work in a grammar school?

Goofy and kind of wrong is up their alley.

I think there's a difference between an innocuous and amusingly bizarre situation like with Deathstroke and Trigon and something as big and fundamental as Superman's Kryptonian parents being alive, essentially supplanting the importance of the Kents in shaping who Superman is.
But you're right, I'm probably taking the whole thing too seriously, this is a really the most fun book DC's publishing right now so I can't fault it for doing something different and light, especially when in all likelihood it will be written very well. I just really like the Kents and don't like their reduced importance in the New 52.

I'll tell you what made me happy this weekend...Saturday I was at the Med center picking up something for the lovely Ms. Satellite. The waiting room was packed. Another Dad was there with 3 kids in tow....each of them had a comic to read. They youngest, a girl of about 7, had this very issue in her hands. Another fan,doing his small part to keep this thing we love alive for the future. Happy joy.
