Awesome!  Conner has become one of my favorite characters over the years, and you did a great 3 minute expert on him, G-Man! 
Good job!

Cool. When 3 minute expert first came out, I noticed that you were doing more "unknown" characters (e.g. Wonder Twins, The Source Wall). However, now, I guess most people wouldn't know that much about the boy of steel. Good job on the 3 minute expert, it was awesome!

Are you doing Conner?


Not Pre-Crisis Clark Kent

Great job :D

Awesome music at the beginning . Anyone know what it is?

#8 Edited by Sergotron (108 posts) - - Show Bio

G-Man sure loves himself some TeeFury. 
I must say, this is easily my favorite feature here on Comic Vine. I can feel more comfortable picking up stuff with Superboy without feeling as intimidating.

I own a copy 3 copies of Adv of Superman 500. I thought it might be worth something back then!
Yeh Me!

Superboy is one of my favorite superheroes great 3 minutes expert. 

#13 Posted by Decept-O (7828 posts) - - Show Bio

Knockout.  Yeah, buddy.  I love how the "physics" and "biology" of the DCU operate.  LMAO.   
Regardless, Superboy is a good character, disappointed with some bits of his story, but glad he's back.     
Oh and nice job, G-Man.  Loved the bit with the action figure dropping the green for the "kids".  Too funny.
#14 Edited by ArtisticNeedham (2541 posts) - - Show Bio

Great.  I knew more about this Superboy than I thought.   That was a great 3-Min expert.
That was cool.  I think I'd like to pick up that Teen Titans story where he finds out he is a clone of Lex Luther.  I got the Legion one where he returns.

#15 Posted by Grim (2188 posts) - - Show Bio

pretty accurate. As a massive Superboy fan, i would have worded some things differently and included a couple things, but all in all i guess this works.

#16 Posted by Shadowdoggy (3868 posts) - - Show Bio

you know, I have that Superman issue and I almost forgot it was Conner's first appearance 
hmmm, I may have to make sure that one's mylar'ed
#17 Posted by danhimself (21320 posts) - - Show Bio

some minor mistakes like when you say "after Justice League disbanded" I'm pretty sure that you mean "when Young Justice disbanded" and when you were talking about Conner going to the Fortress of Solitude to learn about Superman's ancestors you say "descendants" which would mean Superman's sons and daughters and after....but I was ready to come in here and say "pffft...I could do better" but you did pretty good handling my favorite character so I'll instead say "good job"
good job G-Man

#18 Posted by FLStyle (374 posts) - - Show Bio

This would've suited The big Live LIVE Show: Live! more than having more than one character battle segments, especially while Sara did the CV News.
Now all I need is a Superboy Prime 3 min. expert and I'm all set!

#19 Posted by Nick-SV(ril) (719 posts) - - Show Bio

Awesome video expert. Really thorough. Even if I like his current appearance more, I actually miss his old cocky (if you wanna call it that way) suit. Can't wait for the launch of his ongoing title.

#20 Posted by Mumbles (858 posts) - - Show Bio

good one

#21 Posted by ccrosby (72 posts) - - Show Bio

Although this 3-minute expert was great (I'm a huge superboy fan)- I'm suprised there was no mention of conner's Tactile Telekinesis which is what most of his powers are based off of.

#22 Posted by DEGRAAF (8346 posts) - - Show Bio
That was great. good job. Now i have some questions. I remember hearing that origin but....... 
wasnt it retconned that his DNA is half kryptonian and half human (Kal-El/Lex Luthor)?  
also so from what i get from the viedo Superboy will never get older, he will always look the age of a 16 year old?

all the "super" fams powers are based on it now. superman has always had it, there were just no scientists to analyze it before so he thought he had pure super strength.

@ccrosby: There was mention of the tactile telekinesis. I felt that was an important part. One of the bits that had to be cut (as you can see we still went over time).

Superboy is the love of my life, that's who he is! :) 
Awesome video, I love 3minute expert!

#29 Posted by Grimoire (601 posts) - - Show Bio

Haven't read anything about Superboy since he first appeared after Death of Superman. Going to read Infinite Crisis though.

those clone's are cool & look cool!!!!!!!!!!!!!
#33 Posted by shawn87 (2798 posts) - - Show Bio

i dont know if it's because i have never read anything with him in it, but the whole Superboy thing seems stupid. Maybe i should reserve judgement until i read some of his stuff but as of right now im not feeling his character

#34 Posted by sora_thekey (8688 posts) - - Show Bio

So Superboy is half Clark and Half Lex?
I didn't know that! Ewwww!
Thanks Tony!
Great 3-Min Expert as always!

#35 Posted by FinalStar86 (8651 posts) - - Show Bio

I love these videos

#36 Posted by CrimsonInuTears (701 posts) - - Show Bio

"After Justice League disbanded" ... Thank you for not catchin that~ ^_^ 
#37 Posted by ImperiousRix (1144 posts) - - Show Bio

Man, you gotta love Superboy's uber-90's kid look. 
Complete with White boy fade, sunglasses, leather jacket, and earring.  It was sure "kewl".

#38 Posted by longbowhunter (8846 posts) - - Show Bio

I loved Conner in Young Justice and Teen Titans. Never read any of his early solo adventures. Very Informative!!
#39 Posted by Kyle C (96 posts) - - Show Bio

Great video, though I wish it had covered the development of his powers, which i find to be one of the more interesting things about Superboy.

#40 Posted by X-93 (270 posts) - - Show Bio

that was very informative. Good job g-man.  I did not know much about super boy.

#41 Posted by 604comics (220 posts) - - Show Bio

This is what I needed. I'm going to start reading Teen Titans starting with #88 and the new Superboy so this 3-Minute Expert is exactly what I needed. Thank god he doesn't look like a douchy 90's teen anymore.

#42 Posted by Kal'smahboi (3840 posts) - - Show Bio

Wait so Superboy's always going to look 16?

#43 Posted by Technoman (141 posts) - - Show Bio

yay return of 3 minute expert !

#44 Posted by ArtisticNeedham (2541 posts) - - Show Bio

So if comic charcters are allowed to age, he could be like Dr. Who and be 80 and look 16?

#45 Posted by kitsuneconundrum (204 posts) - - Show Bio

really dont like conner kent.

#46 Posted by Superguy1591 (7467 posts) - - Show Bio

I love the entire Superman family.  
Superman, Superboy, Supergirl, Krypto the Superdog and even Steel. 

#47 Posted by Bestostero (5782 posts) - - Show Bio

Another awesome 3 minute expert!

#48 Edited by Krak0 (14 posts) - - Show Bio

I was not a big fan of this Superboy when he first came out after Superman's death at the hands of Doomsday. But that changes when he became part of the Teen Titans. I loved when Lex activates him and he shaves his head and carves an big L into his shirt, then proceeds to kick the crap out of all the Titans.

#49 Posted by Hayamo (3 posts) - - Show Bio

I love Connor as he is now, but I'm not sure if the pre-Teen Titans reading for him is worth it. Even Young Justice seems a little iffy.

#50 Posted by MichaeltheFly (6650 posts) - - Show Bio

Nice job G-man, I missed the 3 minutes expert, Superboy was a character that I really didn't know much about, other than the fact that he was a clone of Superman with Lex DNA in him, thank you to you and the other members of the staff that made this video.
