Jason White is the biological son of Superman and Lois Lane, which makes him half-human and half-Kryptonian. He is presented by Lois as the son of her fiancée, Richard White. Jason has asthma and is a "fragile" child according to his mother, who at one point rattles off a list of the different medications her son has to take. While investigating Lex Luthor's yacht with Jason, the two are abducted by Luthor himself. When Luthor brings out some kryptonite, Jason appears faintly weak, inspiring Lex to ask Lois who the child's father is. Lois informs him that it is Richard. Luthor then holds the kryptonite much closer to Jason, but it produces no apparent effects on Jason. Luthor seems to shrug off his suspicion as false. Not long after, Luthor's henchman Brutus attacks Lois, only to be suddenly crushed to death by a grand piano pushed by a seemingly super powered Jason. He produces his inhaler only to realize he doesn't need it. Lois and Jason are thrown into a locked pantry. After Lois tries for several frantic minutes to break the door open, Jason approaches the door as she watches with bated breath. At that moment, Richard arrives and opens the door from the other side. While Superman is comatose, Lois confesses to him that Jason is his son. After recovering, Superman visits Jason late one night while the boy is sleeping in his bed, and, standing over him, delivers the familiar soliloquy that his own father, Jor-El gave to him 5 years prior. The speech ends with the line "the son becomes the father, and the father becomes the son."
