Smallville question

How much have they strayed away from the comic book?In the original Superman movie-Jonathan Kent dies of a heart attack while Clark still lived at home-On Lois and Clark -Jonathan Kent is alive and kicking as Clark Kent works at the Daily Planet.So the question is-According to comic book lore did Jonathan pass away or not?thanks

Jonathan Kent only died in the movie. He's alive in the comic. He was alive in Lois and Clark. He's alive in Smallville.

As for what else they've changed...

Age 0:
Winter: Kal-El born on Earth (MAN OF STEEL #1)
Kal-El arrives on Earth, landing near Smallville (ZH*33 ya)

Age 5:
Clark enrolled at Eisenhower Elementary School; met Lana Lang and Pete Ross (ACTION #655)

Age 8:
Bull trampled Clark; Jonathan Kent saw that Clark is unharmed
(MAN OF STEEL #1)
Clark lifts pickup truck; Martha Kent witnesses (MAN OF STEEL #1)

Age 9:
Clark takes lead role in 3rd grade class play: "Snow White and the Seven Dwarves" (SUPERMAN: THE MAN OF STEEL #0)

Age 17:
Junior Year in High School
Clark voted Most Likely to Succeed; Clark is class president (SUPERMAN #0)
Clark wins race at state high school track meet (SUPERMAN #0)
Clark and Lana go to prom; elected prom king & queen (SUPERMAN #0)
Summer: Clark learns he can fly (MAN OF STEEL #1)

Age 18:
Senior Year in High School
Fall: Father reveals Clark's rocket-ship origin; Clark immediately leaves home (MAN OF STEEL #1)
Clark Kent leaves Smallville for Metropolis (ZH*15 ya)

Ages 18-22 (5-year period):
Clark secretly averts disasters and saves people; acts as hero in secret; wanders the globe as a "free agent"
