There's a lot going on in the pages of SUPERBOY these days. You're probably aware that Kon El, the Superboy we first saw at the beginning of this series in the New 52 has been replaced by Jon Kent. But then who is calling out to Jon and what's this about an "army of Superboys"?
We talked to Aaron Kuder about the latest issue and the big things coming up.
COMIC VINE: How many people are aware that this Superboy is Jon Lane Kent and not Kon El?
AARON KUDER: For a second I thought you were asking how many readers knew Superboy is Jon Lane Kent right now... Ha. Characters that know SB is JLK... Hmmm.. I would say 6 at least. The five folks from Star Labs and the mysterious figure from the beginning of issue 31. Though, to be honest, keeping his identity a secret is not the biggest priority for Jon in this arc... Actually, I'll just say, he really doesn't care anymore if people know he's not Kon El.
CV: If Kon was at a N.O.W.H.E.R.E. lab, any chance of anyone else popping up from there?
AK: That's a big "if"... Who said Kon was at a N.O.W.H.E.R.E. lab at all? I never did.. Someone is though . We will see some of the NOWHERE crew soon. Rose Wilson for one.
CV: Will we see both Superboys in the series?
AK: Oh brother... We'll see many more than that!
CV: Will it be settled as to who gets to be the Superboy?
AK: Is anything ever settled in comics? Thou there will be ONE Superboy left standing.
CV: According to the solicits, there’s going to be an ‘army’ of Superboys from across the Multiverse. Are you making each one different from the others?
AK: Yep... If for no other reason than we can.
CV: If Kon does come back, will there be a place for Jon’s current supporting cast?
AK: If they survive! I certainly hope so! I'm going to take a break from writing for a while, but I do hope someone else picks them up and uses them.. They are fun characters to play around with.
