Is anybody else thinking they're going to change his history to match "Young Justice?" I have a bad feeling.

Yup. That pretty much seems to be what they're going to do. Brand new blank slate Superboy.

Who cares? DC sucked, and now it's going to really suck. Enjoy flashpoint.

I've still got hope.

Until we see what it is, I wouldn't have hope or dread, lets see what DC does.

What... you're not happy with gay lovechild clone of Superman and Lex Luthor? 
 
But yeah... I can totally see them doing this.  Off camera.  And not mentioning it. 
 
Ah... reboots.  $^&*) you, DC.

You know that's already part of his back story right?

I don't think they're changing anything so much as rolling back the clock and starting over. 
 
So, you know, I'm hoping for the return of the 90s sunglasses, haircut, jacket combo.

I'm thinking there doing away with the history in the previous superboy title. And Young Justice is the current cartoon so they will deffinantly take aleementss from it for use in his backstory.
