Synopsis for "Payback!"
Superboy finds himself pursued by D.N.Aliens and by the Guardian, who were sent to bring him back to Project Cadmus. There, eventually accompanied by Superman, the Boy of Steel learns that he really wasn't a clone of Superman, but rather a human clone given powers similar to that of Superman with tactile-telekinesis as one of his unique abilities. Superman also settles with Rex Leech about the legal use of his name, suggesting that Superboy should be called Superboy from now on. Although the young hero finds the name Superboy offensive at first, he eventually decides to adopt it as his own identity before he leaves Metropolis.
- Part of Superboy's origin prior to changes that took place around the time of Infinite Crisis is revealed here, with the suggestion that he was actually the clone of Project Cadmus director Paul Westfield.
