Still wanting a hero to replace the late Superman, Cadmus cloned Doomsday, the very monster that had killed him.
Conal enjoyed watching his brother, named Doomsboy, grow up and eventually take on Superman's role as the protector of Metropolis. Nevertheless, he became worried about Doomsboy's increasing recklessness and tried to convince him to be more like Superman. Doomsboy retaliated that he didn't want to be in Superman's shadow as he's a clone of his butcher.
Conal was introduced to Tim Drake and Young Justice, but the group was ambushed by Bedlam, Doomsboy, and Secret. Wonder Girl figured out that Impulse could send a scout to prevent Bedlam from gaining his superpowers, and the scout accomplishing this feat reset the timeline.
