@squalleon: does Supes know ?

No. Last time I checked, Superman thought Superboy was dead and didn't know about JLK.

No, John Lane.

I thought Superboy survived and was traveling with that big floating rock man that sent them to the past to begin with

All those superboy character designs, or almost all of them, look better then the one we actually got......

Art is bad. Moving on...

when is this getting relaunched i know its getting canceled and that's a good thing since this series has been plagued with bad writers, too many cross overs, and underwhelming stories

Amen. As an old school Guardian fan, I am crazy about the new costume. It's cosplay worthy and I can literally see this on the Big Screen in the DCMovieU in the future (you know it's just a matter of time before Cadmus shows up on the big screen)!

MoS did had a kind of Guardian. Colonel's Hardy nickname was "Guardian".

So is this Superboy still psychotic and murderous?

Is this book getting cancelled?

Hot damn! I missed that. Well, Jim Harper was a murdered beat cop who was later cloned and enhanced to superhuman levels across the board by Cadmus before he got the costume and the shield.

Maybe that's their angle... I'm gonna have to look at MoS again to see this detail I can't believe I missed!

I thought superboy was canceled to be honest.

I think my favorite is the one kneeling wearing the jacket with the logo on the side. Also the one to the far right, he looks kind of knight-ish. I haven't been following too closely since Kon-El was killed but it seems like this superboy is pretty psychotic still. Really the closest thing this book reminds me of is a not as well done version of superior spider-man.

Does anyone else feel that the "because Lois Lane was human, Jon was going to be EVIL" as some garbage theme rejected by an X-title?

Because marriage makes you EVIL in comics...at least thats what editors believe. Kids ? Why not just blow up the universe !

No sir, you have to have super-flings ! ... meh.

@redwingx:

Yes the book is getting Cancelled

due to low readers

I love the series, hate the people that is cancelling the book. But there is a chance that they will revive the book because I read that DC adapted the Cancellation and Revivification strategy from Marvel. so there is a chance but I'm not to sure. but if they cancel him for real I will tear my hair out.

the ones in the middle:

the black-red one and the gold one

I think that Jon and Kon

Red=Jon

Gold=Kon

Does anyone else miss the leather jacket wearing Superboy/Kon-El from the 90s, & the series by Kesel & Grummett? That was a fun character & a fun book.

I really like the kniht-ish one too. For some reason, my favorite is the gold one. This whole storyline kind of makes me want to get back into the book. I read the first arc with NOWHERE and the Titans, but it was so poorly written and the art was so bad...did it really improve? What's the best jumping-on point now? Is it any better?

I would like it if the gold one had been Superboy's actual design as well. It kind of disassociates him from Superman more, which is what I think superboy needs sometimes. Honestly I'm probably not the best person to ask where to jump on. I've been really off and on again with it. This book has suffered horribly from having to be related to other books, in my opinion. Every time I felt the book was finding it's feet they would have to make superboy part of a bigger story arc for another character and his book lost focus. The first arc is pretty bad as I kind of felt like I couldn't read Superboy without having to read Teen Titans too. Because of this theirs not really a good jumping on point to me. Issue 18 onwards had a good story. It was also helping superboy get some much needed supporting cast of his own. But again that only last till he's pulled back in to teen titans stuff.
