I read about this on Bleeding Cool.

It doesn't mean anything to Superman & Wonder Woman . . . And I cannot for the life of me understand why DC dismantled all of the Teen Titan characters from their roots!?!

Wonder Girl - nothing to do with Wonder Woman
Red Robin - Never Robin
Kid Flash - nothing to do with the Flash
now Superboy - Lex Luthor is not the other ½ WHY!?! This was the hook for the character!!!!!!

I could really strangle someone. I don't understand why this was important for DC to do? Is it because it doesn't fit into the whole "5 years ago" timeline that they so ineptly fashioned into this continuity? It's the 5 years ago BS that doesn't work, not the relationships that these characters were built on.

- I'll just take their word with a grain of salt.

- Red Robin was still an integral part of the Batman Family and is still widely regarded as a former Robin even if his name had "Red" in front of it.

- Bart will be teaming up with Barry shortly in an upcoming issue of either TT or The Flash.

- Since when was superboy's other half not Lex Luthor? I haven't seen anything in the book which clarified where is other half was from, and lex sure seemed to be familiar with Superboy.

EDIT:

- Lois Lane? Really?

there's been some talk throughout the series that kind of hints that there was three dna "donors"....we know that one is definitely Superman and it's hinted that one is Lex which would be the obvious choice...I kind of like that he could end up being the cloned son of Superman and Lois

BUT

I won't be completely happy with it since I still miss the pre52 Superboy and Chris Kent

So this superboy is basically secundus?? I loved the half supes half lex thing,why DC why, although this could prove interesting,Sb is my favourite character n I really miss the Conner Kent of old,just make him like he was...

Well for all those who want him to be "like he was",just remember us fans that have been fans since 1993,when reign of the supermen brought us the metropolis kid,the one who was a modified human cloned to look like superman and given TTK to mimic most of supernans powers,and given latent powers he would grow into as he got older.geoff changed him completley from that,and that was the original,and the one who was around for a decade before johns reboot of the character.when you complain about this SBs heritage remember how we fans from the start feel,atleast this is a totally new reality,a complete reboot,and before he was just changed,just because,without any reality shattering reason.

I believe this SB will have pieces of both the original kon and conner SBs as part of his character,but this is a totally new and different SB,and we should expect changes with him.

Kon is lois and clarks genetic offspring created by cloning ,the rest is just for fun story stuff.

then who is the other half?

I don't mind Wonder Girl losing her connection to WW.

I wish people would get over the Red Robin thing. Big deal when he was with Batman he was called Red Robin instead of Robin.

Kid Flash. We have no idea at this point if he has nothing to do with Flash. He still might be Bart Allen. Just because Barry and Iris West haven't gotten together yet doesn't mean they wont in the future.

Lois being one of the three people Superboy was cloned from is indeed dumb but I just ignore that.

Honestly I don't mind so much DC getting away from the sidekick/Legacy thing. I was getting tired of that. I also would prefer they become their own character instead of picking up the mantle later on.

Anyway all of this will just get retconed soon anyway. The Robin thing was already retconed back and forth. Also look at Team 7. Both in Deathstroke and Team 7 told the origin of that group at the same time and it different then the other. Then just now in Birds of Prey they retconed it yet again. I'm more bothered that DC can't stick with one vision then changes they have made at this point.
