So recently read the newest Superboy and I've really disliked Superboy so far but its getting kinda interesting.So I am going to talk about what I like and dislike. What I like is the fact that Superboy is a clone of Superman and Lois's son Jon Lane Kent. The three DNA's H'el was talking about was Superman, Lois Lane, and Jon Lane Kent. So instead of Superboy being Half Superman Half Lex Luthor is the Son of Lois Lane and Superman which I find actually very interesting. What I do not like is Harvest being apart of it hes got a great story but I think its very weird how they introduced it in Superman 19. I think Jon Kent Superman's Son is going to play a major role in the coming comics. He could possibly be the Superboy Prime of this new Multiverse or could the Kon-El we know now the Superboy Prime.
Superboy is the Son of Lois and Clark
@degraaf: hey I liked him to,I thought his TTK sense was awesome,but wanted his entire powerset to be by touch like the original Kon's was.having Jon take Kon's place is a slap in the face,the only way to redeem this idea is to keep Jon evil,and have kon comeback as the hero he is supposed to be.
@fodigg: I like the inclusion of lex into Kon's origin,but I would rather it be that kon ismt a hybrid,but instead a superman created by lex that was mutated,OR like the original kon,a human super clone created to mimic and take supermans place,but instead of Westfield make it lex Luthor being his creator and genetic donor.
I think the original version is best. A "son" of both the hero & his main villain. Having Con be tempted by both sides. Etc etc. This is the exact problem I have with the New52. Have the balls to actually reinvent the character, such as removing Lois & maybe even the Daily Planet entirely from Superman's story. Not have the most major & significant change to a major character be that Zeus is now WW's father. Wup-dee-do.
So Kon is now the clone of a son from the future? Just dumb. There is no reason to link the two characters.
I like all the versions of Kon/Conner,I just don't like how each one has a different origin and a different powerset.
Cadmus is where he was created
Mutated TTK for solar powers
Attitude,but wanting to be a hero
Start off with Kesel touch level TTK and Lobdell touch TK senses on a kryptonian gravity powerful body (YJ tv show).then allow him to expand his TTK outward slowly.
Wait I don't follow the series what's the difference between kon and Jon
Jon is the son of Lois and Superman and Kon is a clone of Jon who has 2 strands of DNA from Lois and Superman to correct the genetic instability that Jon has.
Actually he was never part clone of Jon Kent. They've hinted on this earlier when H'el messed up his genes and neither Superman, Cyborg or Dr. Shay Veritas, were able to identify the third strand of DNA. In fact at the time Cyborg said that he didn't even know if it could be classified has DNA.
And more recently it was shown that his DNA is actually 45% kryptonian, 45% human and 10% unknown. If it was a sample from Jon, then it wouldn't be unknown would it?! So it's something else.
My theory it's that's martian dna. Think about it. Jon genetic breakdown began because human/kryptonian dna was incompatible. But that incompatibility only manifested itself has the child grew older. So what would be Harvest best move to make it so that the two main dna strands didn't repel each other. Add dna from a species that's known for having incredible metamorphic abilities, like the Martians.
That would also explain why Kon telekinetic abilities were able to surpass those of Jon, even tough Jon not only had TK but also some kryptonian powers has well.
Am I only who actually is exited about Superman and Lois being his ''parents''? Of course Lex being his genetic donor was much drama, but now Sam Lane is his ''grandfather''. A guy who pretty much hate Superman, and now he has a ''grandkid'' with him.
I just hope that they actually some day find out that Kon is part Lois, because now things doesn't look bright for that.
Yeah... I would have been happy just Kon being clone of Jon, or Clone of Clark and Lois, or even being just a clone of Jon with some new DNA samples from Clark and Lois (like we originally thought), but that 10% starts to be little be too much.
I would have thrown out ALL the time travel/future son stuff,and went with something easy,and stayed with what DC wanted kon to be like.
Lex creates a clone from supermans spilled blood and lois lanes blood sample,the clones powers were mutated into TTK,because of his hybrid nature.
Also I would have shortened his sleeves on his suit,but kept the fingerless gloves,and used much less tron like lines.
