Written by J.T. KRUL; Art by EDUARDO PANSICA and EBER FERREIRA; Covers by NICOLA SCOTT and DOUG HAZLEWOD

TEEN TITANS ships twice in July for extra thrills! He's back! Don't miss the issue where one of the deadliest and most psychotic threats in the DC Universe returns. It's Superboy Prime! Of all things to hate, he hates The Teen Titans most of all. Now he's coming for them, and he's not coming alone.


Though...I would have prefered if he came back and went ahead and kick Supes a$$.

@Primmaster64: Prime's one of my favorite characters. That being said, just about every thing he's done since Infinite Crisis has struck me as what a brat does, no offense, lol.

@RedheadedAtrocitus: LOL My bad, So you like him huh? I tought he be good now, since Adventure Comics.

Oh you mean his inner reflection he supposedly had fighting Black Lantern Alexander Luthor? lol Yeah...its possible that he could be good for a while, maybe ::chuckles::

#15 Posted by Primmaster64 (21138 posts) - - Show Bio

He should have...wonder what went wrong?

#16 Posted by warlock360 (28050 posts) - - Show Bio

He started off good but was mad at the fact that he didn't get any recognition like superman did, then one thing lead to another and he even ended up accidentally killing someone 



a point of no return from there since no one would show any sort of sympathy.

#21 Posted by Darkmount1 (1276 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm banking that he's being manipulated (again), and I know this is NOT likely going to happen, but, as I wrote in my short fanfic (check his forum for it), I hope he decided to face his demons and turn himself in to the heroes of primary DC Earth.  Accepting responsibility is probably the first step towards...well....maturing.

The fact he's coming back as a villain sucks. Such a waste.

@FadeToBlackBolt: indeed i thought he'd be good by now.
#25 Posted by FadeToBlackBolt (23334 posts) - - Show Bio
@Primmaster64: Yeah, I think this'll be a case of the writer just doing no research on the character.

I usually like Krul, but he's messed up here.
#26 Posted by RedK (2521 posts) - - Show Bio

one word awesome, wonder who he'll team up with hope it's Jason since Batman&Robin #25 is out around the same time their is a possability

when in gonna come out this issue?
why make prime a villain again?after adventure comics I thought hes gonna become a hero or something
SPB is my favorite villain but even i'm tired of this stupid,emo,non personality character that DC made him
and 1 last thing is that i hope DC will not make SPB a jobber,i mean from beating almost all DC universe to needing help to take on teen titans?
if DC blow this up i will never read them again

#28 Posted by DEGRAAF (7881 posts) - - Show Bio


Im suprised he is evil again as well. One of the things i never understood was that it took 2 Supermen to fight him (and they still lost) but they have shown Superboy taking him on alone and standing a better chance.

 

 

#29 Posted by Primmaster64 (21138 posts) - - Show Bio

That's PIS for you. I never really  understood that either, Prime should be able too beat Kon easily and alone, hell he already beat pretty much the DC Universe once WITH Superman, Power Girl and Supergirl, he beat the 3 of them already,  but has problems with Kon?

Yeah, he should be good now. Mind control.

Oh great,but i honestly think the cover is misleading.Then again Krul wrote ROTA so character derailment is'nt really foreign to him.

i knew they were going to keep him as a villain. With his popularity i think DC is afraid of overloading us with Superman like characters. We have Superman, Supergirl, Power girl, Superboy, Mon-El, Sodam Yat... that does not mean that i want to see him continue as a villain...but i just think his natural personality would not allow it for too long.
#36 Posted by baron2011 (1153 posts) - - Show Bio
@Kallarkz:
as a superboy prime fan i dont mind him being a villain but at least give the boy some personality,give him some intelligence,give him a real reason to attack DC universe,make up a good story to back him up ,and not just kill,kill,kill for no reason because is getting boring

#38 Posted by comicdude23 (11399 posts) - - Show Bio

I'd prefer Superman Prime, instead of Boy Prime, Man Prime is cooler and more badass.

#39 Posted by caesarsghost (559 posts) - - Show Bio

he does make for a great villain, but after Blackest Night I was hoping for some kind of redemption as well. He is just such a tragic character, that moment of happiness that he had at the end of Blackest Night was actually kind of cathartic

@entropy_aegis:  I agree with you. I think that the cover is misleading. But with that being said I don't think he should team with Jason Todd either. I'll be pissed. I hate Superboy Prime and I wish they would've killed his ass in the Legion of Three Worlds story arc. Or that Doomsday would've killed him in this latest event. And before I get the whole, why are you in here if you want him to die crap, I'm gonna explain why.

They should kill him because all they are ever gonna do with him is make him evil. He hates Superman because he feels he is Superman but doesn't get the recognition for anything that HE does. Superman gets it all. He's too unstable. Mostly due to the writer I'll admit. But nevertheless he will always be a bad guy. Just like, unfortunately, how Jason will always be there to be in the way of Dick and Damian. Its retarded but its what DC Editorial wants to do. So until that changes his ass is better off dead. Kill him and let someone bring him back with no memory of how he was before and change him into wanting to do good and being just like Superman, just like he's always wanted.
#43 Posted by superboyprime (31 posts) - - Show Bio

I don't know why people keep referring to Prime as a villain or that he should become a hero as if he isn't already somewhat of an anti-hero. He gave up his entire universe, the girl he loves, his entire family, for a bunch of brats who didn't deserve it. Everyone in the Post-Crisis Earth are nothing but figments of a reality that never should have been.

I'm just hoping that the "Earth-Prime" he was last sent to, where he supposedly "killed" Laurie, where his parents "know what he did" through comic books is just another fake universe, fake like Post-Crisis Earth. Because the logic of everything that happened right when the clone ruins Prime's S scar and after that is just too childish and silly, not to mention it breaks continuity. You can't scar a Silver Age Kryptonian when he's charged with solar energy. WTF man.

The real Earth-Prime better still be destroyed. Prime doesn't need to be "redeemed" in some lame way either. Why should he play by some flawed Superman's rules? He's no Silver Age ideal. Prime already is a hero, and his tragic backstory is what makes him the best character ever.    

#44 Posted by RedHoodJT (527 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm going to have to disagree with you on Prime being a hero. He sacrificed his world to save another. Ok. But he didn't act like a hero. Instead he got upset and started acting like a little b**h cuz the "Real" Superman was appreciated for what he did. And from that point on Prime has done nothing but try to kill everyone close to Superman and Superman himself. He deserves to die. The whole banishing back to Earth-Prime was lame. One it shouldn't have been brought back. Two he should have killed the little shit. And when his parents said that they knew what he had done because they read the comic book it made sense. Its how he knew about the other heroes from the other dimensions. It was a good idea to me. I know that the whole thing was to punish him into thinking he did wrong and that he let everyone he loved and cared about down by doing the wrong things but I still think that the Legions and Superman should have killed him.

@RedHoodJT:     
With all the sex, gore and quantum theories you see in Prime's appearances you'd think the writers would come up with something less childish and corny. 

So Prime magically gets sent to Earth-Prime. For some reason he has no powers. But then he gets his powers back and flies to DC headquarters to confront the editors, who are still controlling what happens to him, implying that it's supposed to be our dimension or some shit? Face-palm.

It's also a plot hole because when Clark-Prime lived on Earth-Prime he never read a comic book about himself, yet all of a sudden the writers from Earth-Prime know all about Superboy-Prime's adventures and history?

But then these comics also magically appear in Prime's house, which Laurie and the Kent family happen to stumble upon and conveniently get done reading right when Prime enters the house. They're also conveniently convinced they were really about him, when the average person wouldn't have that kind of child-like imagination. If someone saw me in a comic book their first assumption wouldn't be that I really did all those things.

Seriously. It better be some kind of simulation, otherwise the writers are really insulting your intelligence.

@superboyprime:  In a story I read with Prime he admitted to reading comics about the superheros of "our" Earth if you will. Then at the end of Legion of 3 worlds his family is reading the same books he read only instead of them being about the other superheroes of our time it was he did while in our dimension. So plot whole...I think not. Good punishment for Prime definitely not. Either have him let go of this childish vendetta against the real Superman or kill his ass. His stories are getting old. And I like Kon el so for him to have killed him because he can't grow the **** up was crap. And even though Conner is a clone at least he still has emotions and is written with them. Instead of a whiny lil bitch that has an inferiority complex.
