Actor Tristan Lake Leabu

Jason White is seemingly the son of Richard White and Lois Lane, however, Clark Kent is actually his real father.


Superman Returns[]

Jason White is presented as the son of Lois Lane and her fiancé, Richard White. When first seen, 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, which flew horizontally across the room, yet was several steps down and not on wheels. The camera pans over to Jason, who has his hands extended. He had been frightened and out of breath just moments before, but afterwards produces his inhaler only to realize he doesn't need it.

When informed of his henchman's death, Lex's first question is, "Where's the boy?" suggesting that he suspects Jason's father to be Superman.

Lois and Jason are then 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 she has something to tell him, and whispers in his ear while glancing at Jason. 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 in the original Superman film, slightly modified. This speech ends with the line "the son becomes the father, and the father becomes the son".
