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

unless i missed something in the video, he never said he was half Superman, He said that they were trying to clone superman and instead just changed human DNA to replicate Kryptonian DNA as much as possible.

G-Man this was truly great! I'm kind of shock that other Comic Book websites aren't doing the same as you guys with a piece like this, but I guess that's what makes Comic Vine truly unique! We're looking forward to the next 3 Minute Expert, Thanks!

I'm pretty happy that you did a DC one.  I'm not a Marvel guy...so the gap between the number of DC characters/items compared to the Marvel ones was apparent to me.

@disco_dan242: I try to alternate between the two.

Man I love these.  Shouldn't they be drawing him a little skinnier then if he's only 16.  He's more like Superman short.  I have a couple questions tho.  Now that he's returned from the dead is he now aging, and what issue did he fight Superboy prime again.  Id love to read that.

The only thing I wish had been explained so far is Lex Luthor's reaction.  In Adventures of Superman # 501, Luthor is basically interrogating a man he had on the inside of Cadmus and the man told him that they didn't clone Superman, they did something different.  This suggests that Luthor wasn't in on the Project, and wasn't even aware of the details, yet during Infinite Crisis tie ins, when they did flash backs with him, he says it was all his idea.  Either Luthor is schizo or someone didn't do their research properly.  Still a huge fan of Conner's.  I actually had a subscription to his first series of Superboy and can't wait to grab the new series too.  In fact, him going back to the Titans is the only reason I pick that book up as well.

@G-Man:  Thanks for the primer! I was interested in the series mostly because I'd heard about him, and the gorgeous scenery that you're in the background of in the beginning and the end parts. I'm definitely curious about the launch of the upcoming title as well!

Wow, this left me even more confused about Superboy

#65 Posted by DukeTogo (7 posts) - - Show Bio

Ugh, this is why nobody reads DC books.  This doesn't make anything more clear and just shows how confusing and stupid DC's universe is.  That lame LA Law music doesn't help either.

I know Superman considers Connor family, do they have a father/son-ish relationship? How close are they? What do they refer to each other as?

@Primarch: Well I remember a issue in the early issues of his first solo series, where a young Clark speculates that Superman hasn't told Conner his identity because he wanted to be a father figure. And after that. when he give's him his kryptonian-name  he mentions something about being closer to brothers.
