Superboy's Kryptonian abilities?

#1 Edited by Brit (372 posts) - - Show Bio

I got another question in mind...
 
It has been stated that Kon-El's physiology is maturing thus he began to develop Kryptonian abilities but what caused his body to mature in the first place? All I know is that Kon-El can't age, is it because of Luthor's schemes? It's cool to know that he's starting to have Kryptonian based powers together with his Tactile Telekinesis. (i'm a bit late in the news... sorry)

the aging problem was fixed back in the 90's, he's at least 18 now back when he wasn't able to age he was about 13-14 well appeared to be he's a clone so he would of been only2 and now he would be about 6-7

Kon  was unable to age  because during the superboy solo series his dna became unstable, but they cured him by  using some  of 16  year old roxy leeches dna; which while saving his life  locked him at  being physically 16 forever. But during the young justice event sins of youth when all the teenagers  age was  aged into adulthood, superboy got sick, but eventually he aged like the rest,and when the event was fixed he  was revealed to be able to age on his own now. This whole event  took place due to Klarion the witch boy's magic.

that i remember! when Lobo de-aged! good times! 
 
 
so this means that Kon-El will develop new abilities as he gets older much liking to Clark's.
 
 thanks for the insight!

He's  already devdloped all of his kryptonian abilities, his last one to develop was artic breath which he developed in blackest night.

Ok just to clarify, Kon-El's Kryptonian abilities developed through natural physiological process and Luthor did not "unlock" any of it, he just brainwashed him. Am I correct?

@Brit: All a natural progression, hes been developing them since the begining of the current volume of the teen titans. Luthor has nothing  to do with it.

hey i've got another question... it says that Superboy's Kryptonian abilities started to developed  2003's Teen Titans. I see him in the first few pages flying was he:

A.) using his Tactile Telekinesis
or
B.) flying by himself.

when did he exactly develop Kryptonian abilities? it was never explained how he learned to fly or can bend steel w/o using his TTK,

what do you think?  it kept me thinking....

@Brit:  he could always fly with his TTK, he probably started practicing doing thing without his TTK when Supes brought him to the crater in smallville to learn how to control his heat vision

@Brit: I'm pretty sure his kryptonain powers came into being by him absorbing solar radiation,He absorbs it a lot slower than superman and after he got to a certain power he started to develop the powers.

that's the thing that been nagging in my mind exactly in what issue he started using his Kryptonian abilities rather the his TTK? Bec in the 2003 Teen Titans, we see him flying around Smallville was he then already using Kryptonian powers or TTK still?

I don't like how he started to develop Kryptonian abilities. I like his simulated abilities better.
In my opinion they moved in the wrong direction when they mad him a Superman Jr type character. Giving him Kryptonian powers moving to smallville.
He was better when he was unique. Had his  own location powers and rouges gallery.
