He was really different. His personality reminded me of Kell-El from the legion of Superheroes.

It's the first episode. There will be plenty of room for character development.

Superboy was awesome in Young Justice. No buts.

@Supreme Marvel: Maybe, it looks like he'll probably be the main character

first episode wait til he meets members of the opposite sex and gets more time out of his test tube then the immature over confident girl hunting superboy will appear.

the show was awesome but you're right...he's never been that temperamental before in the comics...but given the different circumstances of his "birth" I kind of see the reason behind it

Don't get me wrong, I like this new Superboy, I was just pointing out that he was more seroious than his comicbook counterpart.

Give it time. You're asking for everything to be perfect in the first episode.
 
If they focus on anyone it'll be Robin. Since Batman's the one giving them the missions. However they won't. They'll have a group and more people will enter. Like CM3, because they wouldn't have Captain Marvel in it for no reason.

I like the idea of Aqualad stepping up as leader. The original Young Justice kind of lacked that position and the guys were always fighting over it.

I'm hoping for a leather jacket, a fade haircut, and an ear ring

I think Robin'll be the leader.

Anyhow, like I said I like this Superboy.

I have never liked the characters like Superboy, She-Hulk, Batgirl, etc. Robin and Speedy for me.

I know nothing of Superboy from the comics. How is he different than from how he was in the show?

nothing against the jacket earing or hair there all fine so long as you dont combine them while wearing spandix, thats what made him look silly.

he seems a lot more aggressive and angry in the show...in the comics he was a stereotypical 90's teenager smartmouthed  and hitting on every girl that walked by

@danhimself: I see. Was he also a clone in the comics? Cause I think thats the reason why he was so rash in the show. I mean, wouldn't you be like that if they created you  to be  a weapon? lol

yes but the circumstances were different...in the comics Cadmus was making a replacement Superman that they could control during the Death of Superman arc...plus it was the 90's..all teen males in media acted that way...plus he was freed before they could put the mind implants in...or so they thought...turns out Luthor got to him before the Cadmus scientists could

He was! I'm just saying he was different

#27 Posted by ComicMan24 (147091 posts) - - Show Bio

It is natural. He just got out of the tube, he still hasn't developed his personality.  But he is nice.

Well In the comics the newboy legion helped him escape before cadmus could really mess with his head. But in the show I believe they'd have enough time to put in some implanted suggestions and control him through mind control.

I also get the feeling that he probably isn't going to have his trademark Tactile Telekinesis and there really seemed to be no signs of it at all and his origin was dumbed down to be just a basic Superman Clone instead of how it was originally or is now.

Well that's the thing, we didn't see alot of his abilities, we know he didn't have heat vision.Which is how he started out in the comics, he showed no abilities besides strength and I think flying, both of those are abilities he mimiced with his tactile telekenisis. So it could go either way, I mean he's superboy so I figured they would try  to make it simpler they'd just give him kryptonian powers.
#37 Posted by fedykin87 (102 posts) - - Show Bio
@nightwing91: 
 
It looked like flying but they later made it so that he was only jumping really high so he doesn't yet have flying. The shows whole angle on Conner was that he was going to be very true to his comic origins and how he was represented during his first appearances and back then however they have exactly only used the very basic of his origins (cadmus made clone of superman). I kind of get the filling they are going to ditch the TTK power and just make  him like Smallville Clark in the first few seasons where he was developing his kryptonian powers throughout them which in my opinion has been over done and a real shame without his TTK as thats his signature power and one of the major difference that made the character not just some teen version of Clark.

@fedykin87: In the show he's also been kept in a pod, and was wearing a solar suit, and said he'd never been outside, so that tells me he couldn't fly because he hadn't abosrbed anywhere near enough sunlight to put him on a high level.And I beleve when Superboy went to punch Aqualad robin was able to hold him back.
#39 Posted by fedykin87 (102 posts) - - Show Bio

Yeah it looked like Robin and kid flash were actually holding him back and with flying well, it was one of the original powers  he instantly had as soon as he was broken out of his tube in cadmus so if they were going to give him TTK then of the Kryptonian powers it mimicked back in his first series he should have 'strength, flight, invulnerability, and some speed.

#40 Posted by FadeToBlackBolt (23334 posts) - - Show Bio

Finally got around to watching it, and I hope he doesn't stay this moody for long. Or he can be moody until Wonder Girl shows up. Either is good.

#41 Posted by nightwing91 (3912 posts) - - Show Bio
@fedykin87: Well his TTK stil required sunlight much less then supermans but still which was the need for the solar suit he wore, I mean he hadn't been in the sun and he probably isn't fully aware of the extent of his powers lacking training like how he was during the reign of superman. And his invulnerability isn't full proof, it was weak to energy attacks. At this point it could be either TTK or kryptonian powers.
#42 Posted by Primmaster64 (21138 posts) - - Show Bio

He's pretty much like the Golden Age Superman now.

You could say that, yeah. I am expecting that he will start displaying more abilities as the show continues. I am curious to see if the producers will the tactile telekinesis in the show.

i missed the show but i would expect someone that jsut came out of a tube for the first time in his life that he wouldnt have much understanding of humor and would most likely be all seriousness

@Primmaster64:It's like I said at the start he'd never been outside and was wearing a solar suit thats what the white suit was, so that's why he was so depoowered very low amount of sunlight saturating his cells, which would mean he would be very weak.

@nightwing91: GA Superman
#48 Posted by nightwing91 (3912 posts) - - Show Bio
@Primmaster64: I'm just saying he may be about there in the first episode, but obviously he will become much stronger, he'd have to have almost no sunlight in him to be held back by kid flash and robin like he was. But now he's not being kept in a tube in cadmus, now hje's able to start absorbing solar energy which is going to greatly elevate his level of strength.

@nightwing91: I know. I was just poiting out that he was kinda like the GA Superman
#50 Posted by nightwing91 (3912 posts) - - Show Bio
@Primmaster64: I believe he was still quite weaker then GA supes.But in a few episodes he should easily surpass him.
