Superboy src

Superboy, also known as Kon-El and Conner Kent, is a genetic clone of Superman and Lex Luthor. Superboy was trapped on Gemworld during the Flashpoint, resulting in a second iteration, a genetic clone of Jon Lane Kent coming to existence during his absence. Eventually, however, the original was rescued from Gemworld by his friends. The two versions of Superboy were later merged into one being. He has been a member of Young Justice and Teen Titans and eventually became the boyfriend of Miss Martian.

Origins

The Death of Superman

Scavenger II Prime Earth 001

The Metropolis Kid faces off against the Scavenger.

In the wake of Superman's death, four very different contenders arose to his mantle. Amongst their ranks were a clone of Superman and Lex Luthor created by Eve Watson on Project Cadmus, Subject 13 aka Superboy.[4][5][1] At the time, Superboy wore a costume inspired by Superman, though his was modified and included a leather jacket and stylish sunglasses. When he initially appeared, Superboy insisted on being called "Superman", and was frequently frustrated when people referred to him as Superboy.

During this early period he became associated with journalist Tana Moon, who notably captured an image of him rescuing a largely unclothed Arlene Sheenan from a burning building that subsequently went viral. While the world debated which of the new 'supermen' were true inheritors of the Man of Steel's mantle, Superboy was the clear favourite on social media, attracting a sizable following among the youth.

Superboy and Tana Moon

During this period he also came into conflict with Bloodsport, who attacked him using a suit of unknown origin (believed by the witness Perry White to be a creation of Lex Luthor) that created self-assembling weapons for the criminal. Luckily, Superboy was able to use his tactile telekinesis to disassemble the suit and weapons, defeating Bloodsport.[6]

When the Cyborg Superman revealed his true intentions and allied with the alien conquerer Mongol to destroy Coast City in the first step in a larger plan to turn Earth into a new Warworld, Superboy confronted him, and was in turn captured, though he was eventually able to escape. Unbeknownst to all, Superman was restored to life and arrived in Metropolis contained within a Kryptonian Warsuit; the young Superboy, alongside Supergirl and Steel, went to confront the warsuit, unaware of its inhabitant or his intentions. When Superman exited the vessel in a black-and-silver suit, Superboy remained sceptical of his intentions, but the trio was eventually convinced by Lois Lane that this Superman was the genuine article. Afterwards, Superboy, Supergirl, Steel, the Eradicator, and the Green Lantern travelled to what remained of Coast City and defeated the villainous alliance.[6]

Early Career

William Hayes Prime Earth 001

Young Justice fight together against the villain Harm.

At some point, the young Superboy gained the Kryptonian name Kon-El. Superboy spent some time in Hawaii, where he fought King Shark on multiple occasions.[7]

Superboy would go on to become a founding member of the original Young Justice, alongside his best friends, Tim Drake, Cassie Sandsmark, and Bart Allen. While on the team, he and others fought Harm. Superboy would also encounter the clone Match, a clone of himself designed to be stronger and more powerful; Match would later be presumed dead.[8] During this period, he wore a revised version of his previous costume, one lacking the leather jacket of the original outfit. Eventually, Superboy would gain the human name Conner Kent, from his genetic donor, Clark Kent. During his time as a hero, Conner would come to realize that sticking around to help clean up in the aftermath of a fight helped clear his head.[9] One day, after many adventures, Young Justice would sadly disband.

Teen Titans Prime Earth 001

Conner Kent and the Teen Titans.

However, its core membership would go on to become part of a new iteration of the Teen Titans, one that also included Beast Boy and Raven. During this period, Conner wore a new costume; instead of his previous spandex ensemble, he wore a simple El family crest on a T-Shirt and jeans. More than once, Conner came into conflict with Superboy-Prime[10], a corrupted multiversal counterpart of his sometimes-mentor, Superman. During a Crisis, Conner died, resulting in much grief for those who cared for him. In turn, his friends Cassie and Tim would find romantic solace in each other, something they became ashamed of following Conner's eventual return.[11]

Conner would come to live in Smallville as the youngest adopted son of Martha and Jonathan Kent, the adoptive parents of Superman, on their farm, after being sent there by Superman[12]. He attended Smallville High School, though he struggled to pay attention on occasion. He also flirted with a classmate named Stacy.[13] During this period, he 'lost' Jonathan Kent's tractor in a nearby lake.[12]

Lost in Gemworld

At some point, Conner fought a large monster outside of a secret facility in New Mexico. Afterwards, he spoke to Dr. Glory, who briefly misidentified him as Superman before offering to debrief him on the situation, ostensibly a classified national security matter, inside the base. However, he soon left, returning to Smallville.

Later, Conner would attend a class at his school before coming to the realization mid-lession that he felt no particular need to actually attend High School and that his time would be better spent using his powers to help people. He walked out, complimenting his teacher and promising to text Stacy if he could. Unable to find any record of his encounter outside the secret facility earlier, Conner returned to New Mexico.

Conner fought his way through the secret S.T.A.R. Labs facility codenamed 'The Constellation' and confronted Dr. Glory after becoming suspicious of their activities. After encountering a room of strange gems refracting light, he instantly found himself transported outside of his home dimension and into Gemworld.[14] Landing in a marketplace, he came to the defense of a pregnant widow named Lophi, who was frequently interrogated by the oppressive local soldiers. The two befriended one another, and Lophi gave him a safe haven on her farm; in order to defend Lophi from harassment and provide Conner with a fake identity while he waited for help from his dimension, Conner pretended to be her husband. When Lophi's daughter was born, she named the child Martha, in honor of Conner's adoptive mother.[15]

While Conner was stranded, tragedy struck; his home Earth was struck with Flashpoint, and its timeline altered, resulting in it being rebooted;[12] however, since he was in a separate dimension at the time, reality shifted without him.[note] As a result, he became displaced and forgotten by the majority of residents of the altered world.

New 52

Another Clone

Superboy Prime Earth 003

"They call me Superboy, I have no idea why."

While the original Kon-El was lost, stuck in Gemworld and forgotten by his friends and family (and, indeed, the world) as a result of the Flashpoint, another Superboy was created. This second Superboy was a Human/Kryptonian Hybrid clone created by N.O.W.H.E.R.E., an organization which threatens the lives of teen heroes and has a wide array of unforeseen plans. Although led to believe he was a clone of Superman, his creation was orchestrated by the time-traveling general Harvest as a way to save the life of an alternate Jon Lane Kent, cloned from him with the intent of being used to wage war against metahumans.[16] He was accidentally awakened when his death was ordered and his natural self-defense instincts were triggered, killing all the scientists except Caitlin Fairchild.[17]

He was continually tested by N.O.W.H.E.R.E. under orders by Zaniel Templar and supervised by Rose Wilson, Doctor Umber and Doctor Michael White. His first field mission was to infiltrate an alien prison designated as Pen 51, where he lost control of his telekinetic powers and was first separated from the team. Lost and confused, he came to discover his abilities through encounters with humans who attacked out of fear.

Following the cosmic upheavals of the Rebirth period, the history of Superboy was revised. While these events may still have taken place, it likely happened later than originally depicted.

He eventually found that he was followed to the surface by the girl that had been inside Pen 51. The alien from Pen 51 who revealed that Superboy is both Kryptonian and human.[18] After defeating Caitlin Fairchild, Superboy met with Centerhall who told him he's free to come and go as he pleased, but asked that he considered returning to help N.O.W.H.E.R.E. to help stop dangerous metahumans. He chose to go free. However, after seven days of freedom, Superboy felt his first compulsion towards heroics when he stopped a metahuman couple who had killed a restaurant full of people. Once he defeated them, he turned them in to officials at N.O.W.H.E.R.E. and agreed to rejoin.[19]

First encounter with Supergirl!

Superboy prepared for battle against Wonder Girl by studying her previous actions and confronted her at Times Square. Superboy was about to win the match when the Teen Titans came to Wonder Girl's rescue. However, Superboy was able to effortlessly defeat them all, though he began to take pity.[20] He eventually realized that he was in fact created as a weapon and was being wielded by N.O.W.H.E.R.E.. In an act of defiance, he through Templar's surveillance van into the water.[21]

Superboy later met with Supergirl above a bridge, as she was drawn to the "S" symbol on his uniform, the symbol of her family. However, she was disgusted to discover that he was a clone, which were frowned upon in Kryptonian culture. She thus derisively gave him the name Kon-El, meaning "abomination in the House of El."[22]

Before Superboy returned to N.O.W.H.E.R.E., he rescued Caitlin Fairchild, tricking Templar into thinking he was in his room all along. Superboy left Caitlin in the care of his friend, an NYPD detective, Jocelyn Lure. However, Jocelyn would lose Caitlin and Caitlin would return to the colony just in time for the Culling. Superboy returned once again to N.O.W.H.E.R.E. and defeated Centerhall. He discovered he was the second N.O.W.H.E.R.E Kryptonian subject, but was defeated in combat by Rose Wilson before he could find out more.[23]

The Culling

After a failed rescue attempt by the Teen Titans, Superboy was forced to train for the Culling with a metahuman called Grunge. he realized that Grunge, Dr. Fairchild and the other so-called "Ravagers" shared a common immunity to his telekinesis; he managed to defeat Grunge, but being wounded himself, passed out.[24]

Fighting the Legion and the Ravagers!

When he woke up, Superboy found himself in the Colony faced with Beast Boy and Terra. After being convinced to join the Teen Titans in their battle to defeat Harvest, he and the other Titans teamed up with the time-stranded portion of the Legion of Super-Heroes.[25] Harvest sent the Ravagers to finish off the young heroes. Superboy tried to take down their leader, Warblade, but was outmatched because of his opponent's immunity to telekinesis. Dawnstar tipped the balance back in his favor. With Warblade defeated, the young heroes could face Harvest.[26] Harvest escaped and the complex exploded, but Superboy and Wonder Girl managed to save the others.[27]

Superboy woke up in an island full of animals believed to be extinct. Wonder Girl was with him,[28] and they found the other Titans the next day. As they spent time on the island, they started finding clues that it was Danny the Street who brought them there. Danny offered to bring them home, at great risk to himself, and the Teen Titans agreed reluctantly.[29]

Superboy returned to New York where he found an apartment, rented with money he "borrowed" from a bank (not understanding that it was a crime). He and Bunker discussed his symbol, being told that he should be proud of it; when the two wander into a tattoo parlor, Bunker was shocked to see Superboy get an "S" tattoo. [30]

Wonder Girl & The Silent Armor

Back from their fight with Harvest, Kid Flash, Bunker and Solstice faced a a criminal within their headquarters. As Cassie helped them defeat him, she went into a state of berserk, completely controlled by her Silent Armor.[31] Soon, Tim and Superboy attempted to help herget back in control. Though they succeed, a mysterious ex-boyfriend of Cassie, Diesel, then appeared and took the armor for himself.[32]

The three traveled to Cambodia, in search of him and the Armor, but were unsuccessful in retrieving either. Diesel began wearing the Silent Armor, wanting to use all the obscure and arcane powers of the sentient weapon: in fact, Tim soon discovers the mysterious artifact is connected to an old legend associated with a creature named Trigon.[33] After neutralizing Diesel, Cassie takes the armor back and Tim and Kon promise her they will help her control it.[34]

The Ravagers and Legion Lost

Superboy Vol 6 13 Textless

Trapped!

When Superboy came to the defense of his landlord being robbed, one of the assailants, revealed that she was a telepath and made Superboy see illusions. Superboy felt like he was being crushed until he figured out that Kiva was using his own power against him. So Superboy let himself go and opened his very soul. That made the telepath experience incredible pain when she saw inside Superboy and she passed out. While the brutes took the Kiva away, Superboy tended to Dallas.[35]

Jocelyn Lure began monitoring and analyzing Superboy and his previous actions, and he eventually awoke to her pointing a gun to his head. Though they initially fought, they came to an agreement after he explained himself. She brought teleported him to Dr. Fairchild.[36] Desperate for answers about himself, Superboy interrogated Dr. Fairchild to no avail, and the two traded blows. This agitates the other Ravagers, as he was created to destroy them if they ever got out of control. However, Superboy proved himself when he stopped Thunder from exploding. Superboy would also enrage Ridge, when he claimed that he was jealous of Ridge, claiming "at least your memories are real". Superboy would also assist the Ravagers in destroying the other N.O.W.H.E.R.E. Colonies.[37]

Legion Lost Vol 2 14 Textless

Forced to fight alongside the Legion Lost and Harvest

Superboy began training in the Ravagers' hologram training, though the group still did not fully trust him. He made it a goal to become one of them, part of a group. Though Dr. Fairchild remarked that it could never happen, Superboy enjoyed finally having something "real" to dream about. When Superboy and the Ravagers were on a mission to a cemetery to save a meta-teen, they were confronted by N.O.W.H.E.R.E. agents.[38] Dr. Fairchild had a vision to where Superboy possibly dies by Rose Wilson, however, Superboy defies his fate and defeats her and Warblade.[39]

Jocelyn appears through a portal, saying Superboy needs to fulfill his end of their previous deal. Superboy protested, happy at finally finding somewhere he belonged. When she didn't give him a choice and forces him through her portal, the Ravagers followed to save him. Superboy encountered Harvest who then caused him to go berserk, using a Kryptonian trigger phrase.[40] The Legion Lost managed to snap Kon out of his trance just in time, but thed incident left Kon shaken, believing that he was still just a living weapon.[41]

H'el on Earth

Superboy Vol 6 14 Textless

Considered an abomination by H'El

Returning to New York after the ordeal, he was attacked by H'el, a radical Kryptonian who despised him because he was a clone. Even with the help of the Teen Titans, he lost the fight and was abducted.[42] H'el brought him to Supergirl to serve as proof to his loyalty towards Krypton, though she opted not to kill him right away as H'el desired.[43] When H'el was about to snap his neck, Superman interfered and saved him. Superboy tried to help Superman fight H'el to no avail and ended up getting gravely injured when H'el ripped his DNA apart.[44]

Superboy was brought to the Fortress of Solitude by Superman to try and save his life. In the process, Superman discovered that Superboy's DNA contains three strands (as opposed to the usual two); two were identified as Human and Kryptonian, but the third could not be identified. To stop his genetic meltdown, Superman put his Kryptonian battle armor on Superboy. It worked, but caused Superboy's telekinesis to concentrate and condense, limiting his power only to the things he touched.[45] H'El discovered the fortress and managed to lock them out, so that he may use it build a device to bring back Krypton. Together, Superboy and Superman visited Lex Luthor in his prison to develop a plan to defeat H'el. Joined by the Justice League, Superboy and Superman broke back into the Fortress of Solitude. However, their victory was short-lived as Superman and was sucked into an alien device that leads them into another dimension containing a sentient planetoid transformed into a prison planet by evildoers. The two managed to confront the villains, free the prisoners, and return home.[46]

Fighting alongside Superman!

Upon return, the two regrouped with the Justice League to continue the fight against H'El. They watched as H'El activated his finished device, which began to consume the sun. H'El also ripped the Kryptonian armor -- which was keeping Superboy alive -- off of him and placed on Superman, claiming that his parents would "want Kal to die with dignity". Without the armor, Superboy began to die. However, he mustered up the courage and willpower to use his T.K. to try to pull his D.N.A. back together. When Superboy tried to fly to the Star Chamber to destroy it, he encountered Supergirl.

When Superboy tried to convince Supergirl that the Star Chamber will destroy the Earth, Supergirl responded by viciously assaulting him. Despite the attack, Superboy doesn't back down and is saved in the knick of time Wonder Woman. While Wonder Woman faced Supergirl, Superboy managed to destroy H'El's device; however with the machine destroyed, the time shards began to collapse time itself. Superboy tried to hold the shards together, but was quickly defeated in his weakened state and was tied up with Wonder Woman and Superman. Superboy watched as Kara finally betrayed H'el, stabbing him with a shard of Kryptonite and freeing them. Superboy was then able to return home.

Encountering Trigon

While the Titans try to digest the battle against Harvest, they live their new team life: Tim Drake in particular feels and acts different, seducing both Solstice and Wonder Girl behind the backs of his friends. Then, he brings the team to Belle Reve tricking them into thinking a young metahuman was held prisoner there, while Tim only wanted to close a private deal with Amanda Waller. As Cassie and Kon confront him about his attitude, the Titans must stop arguing to handle a threat in the middle of New York City: the demonic Trigon appeared out of nowhere to start his conquer of the planet Earth.[47]

Facing the might of Trigon!

Unable to face him as he's too powerful, the Titans soon get helped by Trigon's own daughter, Raven, who rebels against the evil his father represents. Together with her is another metahuman, Beast Boy, who the Titans previously encountered as one of the prisoners of Harvest during The Culling. Trigon then detects another metahuman on the field, Simon Jones and he amplifies his powers to kill dozens of soldiers that intervened in the conflict. Trigon soon leaves, making the impression that everything he wanted was placing the Titans in a crisis in front of the world.[48]

Tim recruits Raven to the team, all the while fighting a possession he does not know is even effecting him. After facing Trigon's three sons and defeating them, Raven tells the Titans that the Simon Jones incident was only an illusion his father orchestrated to trick them.[49] Trigon then comes back, revealing his intention was to test the resilience of the Titans' leader, Tim Drake. After leaving once again with his real intents still a mystery, Raven officially becomes a member of the team and reveals publicly all the things Tim did under the possession of his father, bringing the team to a breaking point, thanks to jealousy that both Bart and Kon feel about Tim's secret adventures with both Kiran and Cassie.[50]

When Bart was pulled into a wormhole, Superboy helped free him. Superboy was also present when the Green Team offered to buy the Teen Titans.[51]

Doctor Psycho

At some point after their encounter with H'el, Superman intrusted Superboy to take care of Krypto. Learning a lesson after his battle with H'el, Superboy would also return the millions he stole from the bank. While fighting a villain, Superboy was tricked by Doctor Psycho. Superboy would also defeat a H.I.V.E. villain with his help. Superboy also assisted a girl who was manifesting a monster with her mind. He was tricked into destroying a school thinking that a villain was teleporting around. Superboy finally snapped out of his trance after he used a phone camera to realize that there was actually no villain there after all. The "villain" turned out just to be a manifestation of his Superboy's fears created by the Psycho Pirate. Even with all his power, Superboy could not defeat him. Superboy was badly beaten and all his telekinetic senses were temporarily stolen from him.[52]

Fighting the boy he was cloned from, the Son of Superman!

When the Crime Syndicate would take over the world, Teen Titans felt the burden to take the place of the Justice League. They landed at the Fallen Watchtower, saving the law enforcement on the scene. Johnny Quick would utilize the Vibrational Frequency of Kid Flash to cause a temporal rift which pulled Superboy alongside whatever is left of the Teen Titans into the future,[53] after being thrown to different focuses in time[54] Kon and the Titans arrived in a possible future where the child of Superman killed the vast majority of the Metahumans on Earth, He was brought onboard the Justice League satellite by the Beast Boy of the future and was assaulted by the Teen Titans of the future, who confused him for the evil Superboy. Shortly thereafter Jon telepathically placed the memories of him killing the metahumans, and the duo engaged in battle, which Kon overpowered as well as figured out how to pierce him onto the Satellite before he could land a finishing blow he was pulled into the timestream.[55]

Krypton Returns

Superboy Vol 6 25 Textless

Called to Krypton by the Oracle

Superboy, Superman and Supergirl were mysteriously pulled into space, summoned by the being known as the Oracle, who told the Kryptonians that their enemy H'El had successfully gone back in time and saved Krypton from its doomed fate but had caused a time paradox they needed to resolve. The team was sent back in time to the last days of Krypton, with Superboy being assigned to save Supergirl in the past from an Eradicator that was hunting her. After he succeeded, Superboy wiped past-Supergirl's memories of his involvement to preserve the timestream, even though he knew doing so would preserve her hatred of him as a clone when they would first meet years later.

After H'El's defeat by Superman and his father, Superboy secretly stayed in the past and orchestrated the events that allowed Supergirl to escape the planet in a rocket before it exploded. On Krypton for its destruction, Superboy looked back on his short life, realizing that he was not a living weapon, just a boy that tried.[56]

Though Superboy died on Krypton, he was not dead for long, as he was reborn as the Herald of the Oracle. Though he served dutifully, he longed for his old life as Superboy and as a member of the Teen Titans.[57]

Believed to be Dead

Although to the Superman Family, Kon was believed to be dead, he was not forgotten; when Mogul's son attacked earth he was recalled by Supergirl when Krypto returns. After the Superman Family and the Batman Family defeat Jochi, Superman attempted to comfort Batman with the information that even Superboy was created to be an assassin, and he changed, so there was a possibility that Jochi could've changed with more time. However, Batman was not interested.[58]

Superboy was considered to be a target for assassination, when an assassin was targeting people related to Superman, but was ruled out as a target because he was believed to be dead.[59]

Paradox

When Jon Lane Kent returned from the future, his existing consciousness linked with the other Jon Lane Kent of the period who was in stasis. The two consciousnesses summoned Kon away from his duty as the herald of the Oracle. Kon became a bridge between the two Jons. While the Jon that returned from the future worked with star labs, Kon and the other Jon would constantly send messages to Jon at his time at star labs.

Superboy Vol 6 34 Textless

Superboys from every reality unleashed!

When Jon went to explore the N.O.W.H.E.R.E. base, he made contact with the other Jon. Their contact created a pocket reality engulfing the entire N.O.W.H.E.R.E. base. When they made contact Jon had a heart-to-heart with Kon inside their unconsciousness. Kon and the two Jons fused into a singular being, with their body producing tachyons. They transformed multiple of Jon's star labs associates into their ultimate reality versions before the other Jon took control and killed two security officers. With the three beings fighting for control, they split apart and simultaneously summoned every Superboy version in reality. The other Jon took control of all the other Superboys and attempted to kill Jon, Kon and the others.

However, the attempt was not successful and Jon sacrificed himself throwing himself and the other Jon into the wall of the pocket reality. The destruction of the pocket reality returned the star lab workers back into their normal reality versions and returned all the Superboys to their respective realities. By killing himself and destroying the pocket reality, Jon was erased from existence, and Kon was brought back as the one and only Superboy.[3]

Secret Origins

Secret Origins Vol 3 7 Kon-El (Prime Earth) DNA test results

The mysterious 10% of unknown DNA

Superboy visited S.T.A.R. Labs to take a DNA test. The doctor prepared a Kryptonite coated syringe because he assumed that he would need it to break Superboy's skin, however, Kon explained that his power relied solely on his T.K., therefore the kryptonite needle was not needed. To distract from the pain and to wait for the test to finish, Superboy reflected on his past. He explained his creation, origin, time with the Teen Titans and death. he describes how hard it is to live up to Superman, after meeting him.

Eventually, Superboy has a realization; he doesn't need a DNA test to tell him who he is. He's Superboy! However, when he leaves, the DNA test finishes. Revealing that his DNA is 45% human, 45% Kryptonian, and 10% Unknown. The Doctor is intrigued as the computer is not being able to identify the third strand of Kon's DNA.[60]

Supergirl

Wanting to find a sense to his existence, Kon traveled throughout the world, learning different religions and philosophies. While in Rome, he stumbled into the students of an inter-planetary school for super-heroes called Crucible Academy. One of those students, Maxima, was under orders to take him to Crucible, though Supergirl, who happened to be a Crucible student, stepped in the way and tried to stop her schoolmates. When Maxima and Kon pointed out that Kryptonians hate clones, Supergirl replied she had changed and she knew better now.

Superboy agreed to go to Crucible anyway, reasoning he had nothing to lose. However, one of the preceptors captured him with the purpose of extracting his Kryptonian DNA with which creating an army of clones. Supergirl and her schoolmates rescued him, and Kon and Kara managed to destroy the cloning facility. Afterward, Kon returned to Earth to help people.

Hunted by the Elite!

Returning from Crucible Academy, Superboy's programmed killing instincts kick in when he comes in the proximity of a neighborhood filled with the Durlans who he registers as a threat. Superboy, not in control of his body, ruthlessly slaughters all of the Durlans, except Ra'ut L'lwer. This incident was similar to another when Harvest made him fight the Legion Lost.[41] Superboy's name and image are spread across social media as a mass murderer, with even Reporter Lois Lane writing about him.

Ra'ut L'lwer helped Kon escape from jail and J'onn J'onzz, the Martian Manhunter. Red Robin doubts the video is true, although the Titans are split on whether Superboy could have actually committed mass murder. However, Tim didn't let the team have a vote and insists Superboy is innocent. Manhunter, who was seeking to kill Kon for what he had done, found them at Gar and Miguel's apartment; Kon lashed out at him and knocked him unconscious. Once again, Tanya and Cassie got into an argument with the rest of the Titans, ending with talking with Manchester Black, who offered them a place on S.T.A.R. Labs' new team: The Elite; they accept.[61]

Even though they were trying to lay low, Miguel, Gar and Raven were recognized, and they attracted a large crowd. While surrounded by the crowd, a woman was pushed onto the tracks of the L-train. Gar and Miguel fully revealed themselves to save her, but Kon swooped in just before the woman was killed. Because Kon was still technically an escaped murderer, the police responded immediately. Manchester Black and S.T.A.R. also noticed, and decided on sending their team on their first mission. The Titans escaped before the Elite showed up, but, with the help of Klarion, manage to locate them again.[62]

After escaping Black and the Elite, the Titans went into hiding once again, trying to plan their next course of action. They eventually decide to break into the M.A.W. to help Kon, who is in hiding[63]. Raven tells them that the person she saw in relation to Kon in Black's mind is Despero. In order to get to Despero, they would have to temporarily let every inmate out, including Blockbuster and Livewire. Right before many of the inmates escaped the facility completely, Kon showed up and took them down.[63]

The Titans say goodbye to Kon.

All of a sudden, Tim, Kon, Cassie and Bart were transported to a place that appeared to be the apartment where they first joined together to be the Titans. Afer seeing various visions and images of their past, it was revealed that Harvest was the one responsible for it. Harvest attempted to win Kon over, but the Titans retaliated. But, Kon convinced them to stop. He told them that they were the best heroes—and the best friends he had ever known. But he did kill the aliens and truly was nothing more than a living weapon. After a brief scuffle with Tim, he disappeared with alongside Harvest, leaving Tim, Bart and Cassie alone in the illusion.[64] He was never seen again.

Aftermath

Though this version of Superboy disappeared and was presumed dead by most, he was not forgotten. He was recalled by Bunker multiple times whenever Bunker reminisced about his time with the Titans.

When the Suicide Squad and the Outlaws raided a N.O.W.H.E.R.E. base that was causing seismic tremors. Bizarro knew that the base was made to stop another Kryptonian clone. However, when Harvest's corpse was found dead and crucified and Superboy had mysteriously vanished; his involvement in Harvest's demise is unknown.

Superboy Conner Kent Prime Earth 0002

Transported to a world unfamiliar to him.

During an assault on Metropolis by Gemworld soldiers, a group of young heroes, including Conner's old friends Tim Drake, Impulse and Wonder Girl, arrived in the Gemworld dimension. Conner was able to have a joyous reunion with Impulse first, and the two broke the rest of Young Justice out of Gemworld's jail. They were quickly confronted by Lord Opal, a Gemworld tyrant and nemesis of new Young Justice member Amethyst. Although Opal temporarily weakened Conner using a pendant of Kryptonite, the team managed to defeat him.[15] After bidding Lophi and baby Martha farewell, Conner and the rest of Young Justice were sent out of the dimension by Gemworld's council.

Lost in the Multiverse

The team quickly found that they were betrayed by the council of Gemworld and were not sent home; instead, they were banished into the Multiverse, re-ejected haphazardly by each universe's heroes. Young Justice would first arrive on Earth 42, only to be ejected by that world's Justice League to Earth 26, the chaotic homeworld of Captain Carrot, whose team quickly sent them away to Earth 22, the world of Kingdom Come.

Their arrival quickly caught the attention of world's Justice League, whose Superman was infuriated when Superboy reveals that he is the clone of Superman and Lex Luthor. Wonder Girl defused the situation by asking that world's Wonder Woman to use her Lasso of Truth on her and, after helping to defeat the Sons of Batman, they received the assistance of that world's Doctor Fate and are sent away.[65] Unfortunately, due to a miscalculation on Dr. Fate's part, they were once again sent to the wrong world -- this time Earth 3, where they encounter the evil version of themselves. Superboy came face-to-face with his evil counterpart, Luthor-El, who was working for Cassie's evil counterpart, Amaxon Thunder.[66] When Young Justice defeated their evil counterparts, they finally returned home with the help of Earth-3's Batwoman and her multiverse map.[67]

S.T.A.R. Labs

When Superboy arrived home, he was introduced to the newly-minted hero Naomi and he and the rest of the team crashed at her house for the night. Learning of S.T.A.R. Labs' suspicious involvement with the dimensional rift they returned in, Superboy angrily went to confront Dr. Glory alone. Anticipating his arrival, Glory tricked Conner into coming in contact with a crystal, once again banishing him to another world.

Warlord helped Superboy grapple with feeling purposeless; he explained that he is a human from Earth who ended up stranded on Skartaris many years ago. He told Conner that although he too felt lost when he arrived, accepting that hopelessness opened him up to discovering new ways to be, eventually finding his passion and becoming happier than ever. The two eventually battled Green Manaleeshi, who was provided a Kryptonite sword and interdimensional communication device by Dr. Glory, before Superboy was rescued by Young Justice.

During the team's return to S.T.A.R Labs to finally confront Dr. Glory together, Impulse explained Conner's displacement from their dimension to the group as well as everyone's fractured memories of a past incarnation of the group; after the Labs' assets and employees were apprehended by the FBI, Superboy confronted Impulse alone for more explanation. Impulse reluctantly elaborates about a tragic possible future he traveled to, and his existence as someone who was rapidly aged. He confides that Superboy is the closest person that he can relate to, as he is a clone who also struggles with discrepancies about age. Robin interrupts the conversation, deciding that the entire Young Justice team is going to meet up at the Hall of Justice tomorrow to get concrete answers.

Reunion of the Kents

Superboy and the rest of Young Justice gathered to watch Superman's press conference, where reveals his identity as Clark Kent; afterwards, Superboy went to re-introduce himself to Superman, who did not remember him.[68] Superboy fought alongside Superman and the Justice League against Leviathan. He destroyed a sky battleship and fought with his other genetic donor, Lex Luthor, who also didn't recognize him.

Alongside Superman again!

After the incident, Superman took Conner Kent to the Fortress of Solitude to examine him and question him about his origins, although Conner had few answers. During their questioning, Jonathan Kent and his 31st century companion Brainiac 5 arrived through a time portal; Jon brought Brainiac 5 to show him life back in the 21st century, but the two Legionnaires were caught off guard by the appearance of Conner and the mystery behind his origins.

Later, at the Hall of Justice, Superman gathered the smartest people in the superhero community to tackle the mystery. Mr. Terrific and Ray Palmer theorized that Conner originated from a version of their universe that existed prior to one of at least three theorized universal 'reboots'. After Conner explained that he was sent to be raised by Jonathan Kent and Martha Kent, Superman took Conner, Jon and Brainiac 5 to the Kent Farm in Smallville to see if they recognize him. When Jonathan and Martha saw Conner, they immediately recognized him and became affectionate towards him, baffling the group.[12]

The strange "reunion" was interrupted by Superman's wife Lois Lane calling for help, with Conner accompanying him and Jon to save her and Jimmy Olsen from the mob enforcer Red Cloud, who fled. At Conner's suggestion, the group responded by ambushing Red Cloud's boss Marisol Leone's bar and shrinking it, sending the remains to taunt her.[69] When the group is greeted by Supergirl, Conner was introduced to her for the first time since the Flashpoint; she had no recollection of him, but was glad to meet him.[70] When the group confronted Leone, she unleashed a Parasite from an alternate earth that manages to render Conner unconscious; he was defended by Brainiac 5 until he was able to recover and the Parasite was defeated. Red Cloud resurfaced to finish the job, but after a brief struggle Superman was able to place her in the Phantom Zone, neutralizing the threat.[71]

Sometime after the incident, Conner returned the Hall of Justice to discuss developments in the study of his physiology. While the tests concluded that he is expected to have a normal lifespan (perhaps even slightly longer), they also revealed the possibility that he may permanently lose his powers at any given time. Distressed, Conner confessed to Superman that he wanted to go home, feeling more at peace on farms. With Krypto and the elder Kents enthusiastically welcoming him and Superman feeling that they are safer with someone to defend them, Conner once again made Kent Farm his home.[72]

Further Adventures with Young Justice

After settling down in his new home, Conner continued to assist Young Justice.[73] He was called by Tim Drake to assist him and Stephanie Brown in defeating her father, Cluemaster; sometime later Conner assisted with a battle against yet another relative of a Young Justice member, this time against the wrath of Zeus and Poseidon, the grandfather and great-uncle of Wonder Girl.[74][75] He also occasionally took to relaxing with the team, once eating donuts in the back of Jinny Hex's pickup truck.[76]

Infinite Frontier

Suicide Squad

Due to the changes to the multiverse following the battle against Perpetua and The Darkest Knight (which Conner participated in[77]), it appeared that Conner's place within the timeline was finally fully restored and he had somehow merged with his New 52 counterpart, similar to the pre- and post-Flashpoint versions of Superman merged into a single being.[note]

Suicide Squad 2021 Annual Vol 7 1 Textless Variant

Superboy confronts his Match

At some point, Conner was cloned by The Agenda under Amanda Waller's direction. One of the clones was awakened and manipulated to believe he was the real Conner, supposedly subdued with kryptonite and kidnapped to potentially serve as a leader of the Suicide Squad.[78] While operating with the team, this "Superboy" exhibited heroic behavior and repeatedly attempted to help people against orders.[79] During a mission to forcefully recruit Bolt at Titans Tower, the clone tripped an alarm after he became fixated on a framed photograph of the former Young Justice team and wandered off to view it, resulting in the Teen Titans Academy students engaging with the Suicide Squad.[80] Confused at seeing Superboy work with a team of criminals, the students contacted the real Conner.[8]

With the Justice League and Checkmate on call, Conner arrived at a Russian black site to confront his clone who, ailing and confused, attacked him.[81] After defeating him, Conner noticed that the clone's skin became sickly white and believed him to be dead, though he quickly awoke and began speaking strangely. Though Conner wished to help his clone, dubbed "Match", Waller had the clone teleported to an unknown location before anything could be done. As a direct result of Conner's intervention, Waller became wanted by the U.S. government and went on the run with Match and the rest of the squad in tow.[82]

Warworld Revolution and the Return of Kal-El

After Superman left Earth, the villain Conduit stole the Genesis Fragment from Lois Lane per orders of Amanda Waller, this prevented them from healing Thao-La's cells. Conner was then contacted by Lois along with the rest of the Superman Family to recover the fragment and save Superman's Warworld revolution.[83]

Conner and his family eventually caught up to Conduit, fighting him until Jon Kent arrived. After Conduit failed to get help from Waller, he touched the Genesis Fragment, which made Conner realize that they needed to get the fragment away from him before he disintegrated. Steel then broke the fragment and an unconscious Conduit fell to the ground.[84]

Conner was present at the Fortress of Solitude when Thao-La woke up despite them losing the Genesis fragment, as the fortress started to shake, Kelex informed the family that Warworld appeared in the sky. Conner and the family went to attack the planet-ship, but were instead surprised with the return of Superman and the Authority, who told them that Warworld was free now.[85]

Conner was the first to discover and engage Metallo during his attack on Steelworks Tower.[86] Conner was brutally beaten in the fight, but he recovered quickly with Kelex's aid.[87] Cyborg Superman was eventually beaten through a combined effort of the Superman Family, including Conner.

The Man of Tomorrow

Superboy Conner Kent Prime Earth 004

Superboy using his powers

Feeling out of place in the Superman Family and left in a universe that seemingly didn't remember him, Conner took an old Zeta-Beam bracelet from the Fortress of Solitude and journeyed out to help others in far flung regions of the universe, where Superman was not known. In space he encountered The Cosmoteers, a trio of clones created to be living weapons by an alien scientist known as Dominator X, and had broken free of his control. Superboy helped the Cosmoteers free their fellow clones from all of Dominator X's labs. Unbeknownst to him, the rings that the Cosmoteer leader Travv gave to every clone they "saved" was in fact a mind control device. When Dominator X sent his super-clone Infinity after them, Travv activated the mind control rings and called all the clones to attack Infinity and kill him. Connor was horrified by this and confronted the Cosmoteers, but they blasted him with red solar radiation to drain his powers, then knocked him unconscious and left him to die on the planet Decidia, a barren world ravaged by Dominator X.

Two alien children from a small group of survivors and refugees on the planet recognised Superboy from his exploits and carried him to their home. They put him under a yellow sun lamp to restore his powers and allow him to heal. Conner was initially furious at himself for failing to save Decidia from Infinity, and letting Travv get away to hurt more people, and flew away to a mountaintop. One of the boys, named Gleeb, tracked him down and Conner admitted that he had been trying to recapture his earliest days as a superhero with his space adventures; and that he believed he had failed everyone and the universe would pay for his mistake. Gleeb told Superboy he didn't fail his people, and that whatever his motives were his actions were still good.

Reinvigorated, Conner called Earth and told Kelex to put out a signal to any ships in the vicinity of Decidia to offer aid. He realised that throughout his adventures he had been inspiring hope like Clark does. He had Kelex track the Cosmoteers and teleport him to their location on the planet Challuum.

Meanwhile on Challuum, the Cosmoteer leader Travv had gone mad with power and was casually slaughtering civilians while hunting for Dominator X, horrifying the others. Superboy attacked Travv and ripped the control device out of his forehead. With the clones freed of Travv's control, the other Cosmoteers took them to safety while Conner fought Travv. They found Dominator X at the spaceport and trapped him in a cage, then called the Green Lantern Corps to turn both him and themselves in for their crimes. Travv set off a bomb in his cybernetic arm, seemingly killing himself, but in fact this allowed his cybernetic spinal cord to leave his current, powerless body and take control of one cloned from Superboy's DNA.

Travv easily overpowered the Cosmoteers, leaving Superboy to face him alone. Now seemingly insane, Travv attempted to kill Superboy with a full-power energy blast that could have levelled the city they were fighting in, killing millions of people. Conner was able to contain and reflect the blast back at Travv with his tactile telekinesis, leaving him comatose and with full-body severe burns. The Green Lanterns arrived shortly afterwards and arrested all three of the Cosmoteers.

On Earth, Superman did not even notice Conner was missing for two weeks and realised that he and the Superman Family had not been there for Conner when he needed them. When Conner returned to Earth the Superman Family threw a surprise party for him and Clark promised Conner that he would start acting like the big brother to him that he should have been.[88]

Despite this, Conner still felt overshadowed by Clark and unsure of his purpose in life: he had been created to be a "backup Superman" and he wasn't even that now that Jon Kent was Clark's natural successor. He had a recurring nightmare of dying while fighting Doomsday, only for everyone to forget him and only remember Clark's death. During this period, Conner started a relationship with Miss Martian.[89]

The Chained

The Return of Superman 30th Anniversary Special Vol 1 1 Textless Manapul Variant

Kon-El's new look

A new villain known as The Chained, an immensely powerful telekinetic who had been given powers by Lex Luthor and imprisoned for decades, was freed from his prison by Superman and attacked Metropolis. The Superman Family, including Conner, responded and tried to stop him. During the fight the Chained said that Conner was like him, but hadn't reached his full potential. The Chained telekinetically toppled two skyscrapers, and Conner rushed in to hold them in place with his tactile telekinesis while Clark and Supergirl evacuated the buildings. Conner and the Chained had a telekinetic contest, as the Chained tried to push the buildings down and Conner tried to hold them up. Conner was able to resist the Chained's power for a short time, just long enough for the others to empty the buildings, and Clark pushed him out of the way to safety just as he was about to give out under the Chained's greater power.

Conner felt a connection to the Chained and told the others that the Chained had tactile telekinesis like him, but was able to somehow project it a great distance from his body.[90] The Chained returned to Stryker's Island to murder Luthor's daughter Lena as punishment for what Luthor had done to him. Conner and Clark responded and were able to get the Chained away from the Luthors by letting him tie them up in his chains and then flying away at top speed. Luthor told Superman that Kryptonite could penetrate the Chained's telekinetic force field and so Clark attacked the Chained wearing an anti-Kryptonite protective suit and Kryptonite gauntlets.

Clark was able to attack the Chained directly, but in the fight his suit was compromised and the Kryptonite began to affect him. The Chained had the weakened Superman at his mercy, but this was just a distraction to allow scientists from Supercorp to set up a way to trap the Chained. Conner swooped in and locked an opaque hood on the Chained's head that prevented him projecting his telekinesis. Supercorp scientists fired restraints at the Chained that restrained him and neutralised his powers. Unfortunately, Clark had succumbed to advanced Kryptonite poisoning and was near death.[91]

Powers

  • Cloned Kryptonian Physiology: Under the effects of a "yellow" sun, Superboy possesses the potential of powers an average Kryptonian. These include:
    • Solar Radiation Absorption: Under optimal conditions, this is the main source of Superboy's powers as they are contingent upon exposure to solar radiation from a yellow sun star system. His Kryptonian body is constantly absorbing and storing energy from Earth's yellow sun, which in turn grants him incredible powers.
    • Self-Sustenance: Superboy can live and speak in the vacuum of space just fine even though he had difficulties breathing in space when he was in it for the first time.[22]
    • Superhuman Strength: Thanks to his Kryptonian genes Superboy possesses vast levels of superhuman strength. He displayed enough strength to bench press a couple tons, he is strong enough to lift a semi-truck car over his head while flying.[65] He also has showcased enough physical might to lift the city of Kandor into space without his psychic powers[22][56] and can effortlessly throw a large man away by stricking him with a single finger.[92] He is also able to destroy one of the Khunds warships with a single punch.[93]
    • Superhuman Speed: Superboy is able to move at incredible speed by sheer force of will. This extends to his perceptions and allows for feats such as catching bullets in mid flight as well as covering vast distances in little or no time. He was able to travel for more than three miles and back so fast that people didn't even noticed he left.[15] While not as fast as Impulse and other Flashes on the ground, Superboy can still fly at speeds faster than speed of sound and keep up with his speed.[94] While his top speed is unknown he has proven able to move faster than lighting.[95]
    • Invulnerability: Even without his tactile telekinesis field, Superboy is tough enough to resist the touch of lava.[15] Gizmo's rockets also fail to cause any damage even when scoring a direct hit.[96] He has been able to take powerful blasts of lighting and blows capable of causing small earthquakes with almost no damage.[95]
    • Enhanced Vision: Superboy's vision processes the entire electromagnetic spectrum as well as allowing vast control over selective perception and focus.
      • X-Ray Vision: Superboy possesses the ability to see through solid objects.[70]
      • Telescopic Vision: Superboy can see something at a great distance, without violating the laws of physics. Though limited, the exact extent of the ability is undetermined. In function, it is similar to the zoom lens on a camera.[97]
      • Microscopic Vision: This is the ability to see extremely small objects and images down to the atomic level.[98]
      • Infrared Vision: Superboy can see with better acuity in darkness, and to a degree in total darkness.[citation needed]
    • Heat Vision: Superboy can, as a conscious act, fire beams of intense heat at a target by looking at it. He can vary the heat and area affected.[99]
    • Superhuman Hearing: Superboy hearing is sensitive enough to hear any sound at any volume or pitch. With skill and concentration, he can block out ambient sounds to focus on a specific source or frequency.[100]
    • Super-Breath: Superboy is able to create hurricane force winds by exhaling air from his lungs.[69]
    • Superhuman Stamina: Superboy can exert himself at peak capacity for several days.
    • Accelerated Healing: Superboy has the ability to heal himself (from the wounds or diseases of others or themselves).
    • Flight: Superboy can fly without using his tactile telekinesis. He was able to fly incredibly fast from Smallville to the middle of a desert.[14]
    • Longevity: Superboy can live longer than regular humans, remaining at his prime as long as he was under the exposure of the "yellow" sun.[101]
  • Tactile Telekinesis: Superboy's body is completely surrounded by an invisible field of telekinetic energy, protecting him from harm and enhancing his physical abilities. This can also be used to manipulate objects that are on the same surface as the user (such as the ground) or to fly by pushing his own body through the air (this usually requires effort though). He can use his tactile telekinesis to break machinery apart by touching it.[6] According to Lex Luthor, Conner's telekinetic abilities actually come from Sammy Stryker's genetic material added to his hybrid DNA.[102]
    • Simulated Invulnerability: Superboy uses his telekinetic ability to create an invisible force field around his own body. This field can deflect Kryptonite bullets, giving him a measure of resistance to Kryptonite that a typical Kryptonian would not possess.[6]
      • Force Field: Superboy can extend his field to create strong telekinetic shields.[88]
    • Simulated Superhuman Strength: Superboy uses a telekinetic field to lift heavy objects.[103] Superboy's strength is so great with his telekinesis he easily defeated Martian Manhunter in a few blows.[61]
    • Telekinetic Senses: Conner can similarly expand and extend his sensory output beyond the limited range of his immediate surroundings. Sharpening both his touch to feeling everything around him, from picking up the subtle vibrations on the air or in the ground in order to simulate a sonar tracking effect. To amplifying his audible/decibel range of happenstances well out of listening range.
    • Telekinetic Hyper-Acceleration: Kon-El can focus his telekinesis inward to accelerate his molecular motion in order to move at ultrahigh velocities.[18]
    • Simulated Heat Vision: By vibrating molecules within his line of sight, Superboy can set things ablaze through the application of extreme heat.
    • Telekinetic Blasts: Superboy is able to project bursts of raw energy bolts of concussive force. He mostly projected the energy from his hands, but his TK field permeated from his entire body. The blasts he emitted had concussive force equivalent to 5,000 pounds of TNT. By going all out he can emit powerful omnidirectional blasts of telekinetic energy capable of great destructive power.[95]
    • Flight: Superboy uses his telekinetic ability to emulate the practice of flying.
    • Electrical Signal Disruption: Superboy can use his telekinetic ability to temporarily disrupt electrical signals in machines or robotic beings by severed their connection to main commands.[104]

Abilities

  • Charisma[105]
  • Farming[14]
  • Genius Level Intellect: (Formerly) The New 52 Superboy was shown to possess a superior intellect to what humans could ever have. His mind worked with incredible speeds. The original Conner Kent and the post-Infinite Frontier "merged" Superboy possess an above-average level of intelligence but well within normal human limits.
  • Multilingualism: Superboy is shown to know and speak English and Kryptonian perfectly.

Weaknesses

Equipment

  • Containment Suit (Formerly): Superboy's suit sports the symbol of the House of El and monitors his TK and repairs itself.


  • Superboy (Kon-El) was created by Karl Kesel and Tom Grummett, first appearing in Adventures of Superman #500. However, in the Prime Earth continuity, Superboy (Kon-El) first appeared as part of the New 52 DC Universe in Superboy (Volume 6) #1 by Scott Lobdell and R.B. Silva.
  • Before Infinite Frontier, very few characters in Prime Earth remembered Conner, much less his New 52 version. However, there is at least one person who remembers the New 52 version: Bunker. Bunker spent a good deal of time in stasis, and when he was awoken, recalled the original New 52 iteration of the Teen Titans, including the existence of the new 52 iteration of Kon-El. The Outlaws later visited an abandoned NOWHERE facility used to house their version of Kon-El, indicating that this iteration of the character still existed in the current version of history.
  • As of Infinite Frontier, the original Conner Kent's history within the timeline has been restored with Amanda Waller and the Suicide Squad now remembering him as well as photographic evidence of his prior existence[109], likely due to the events of Dark Nights: Death Metal.
  • After the "unknotting" of the timeline, the New 52 version of Kon-El and the original Conner Kent appear to have been merged into a single individual.[89]
