    Default Parents with retconned living/deceased status

    Obviously, the Kents are a great example. Clark losing dad second after grown. Clark losing them younger, both living in present day

    Jor-El - Ozymandias and I'm not even sure what current story is

    Allura and Zor-El - died after sending Kara off, only later retconned to be in Phantom Zone. I can't remember if the were ever actually intended to be dead in post-COIE before we found them in Kandor. And more recently, Zor-El as Cyborg Superman.

    Nora Allen - we all know that one

    Silas Stone - originally he died shortly after Vic joined the Titans. Got to live in the universe reboot.

    Trigon was actually intended to be dead and then brought back, right? I read it, but it was a while ago and I couldn't swear there wasn't a indication he was still alive.


    Got any more to toss in?

    Arthur's dad was retconned into not being his dad during Post-Crisis, but in the New 52 it was then also revealed his mother was still alive.

    Does Flashpoint Thomas Wayne count? I mean he’s still got to be running around somewhere

    Forgot about her entirely. I wasn't sure about changed up parents, because that can get messy with older stuff (Jimmy Olsen, so much).

    Dinah Drake-Lance / OG Black Canary and Lawrence Lance, Dinah Lance's (or Drake per post-Flashpoint) parents are not mentioned since she's an orphan in post-Flashpoint.

    Oliver Queen's parent turned out to be alive in both the New 52 and Rebirth (both ended up being bad guys).
