Power levels

How is it that Jon's human DNA makes him potentially more powerful than his father? DCLover1995 (talk) 04:19, August 25, 2017 (UTC)

The author must have read too much Dragon Ball, since this is the way Sayans work, semi-Sayans are biologically more powerful and have higher chances at becoming Super Sayans. The preceding unsigned comment was added by Civil Warrior (talk • contribs).

False Information

All the information under "Accelerated Healing", "Molecular Acceleration", and "Danger Sense" is entirely bogus and should be removed. Questionaredude (talk) 18:23, January 16, 2019 (UTC)

It's sourced. What source do you base your claim on? --Tupka217 18:30, January 16, 2019 (UTC)
By looking up the readily available issues online. For example, "Jon is able to rapidly heal himself and others from either severe or minor damages, through force of will." (Super Sons #12). Jon heals no one in that issue. "By vibrating his molecules at high-speeds, Jon can allow himself to become momentarily intangible, and phase through solid objects." (Superman #8) No such feat is shown. "Danger Sense" (Superman #38). Once again, never shown. Questionaredude (talk) 18:46, January 16, 2019 (UTC)

Nevertheless, do not remove sourced claims without an explanation. I'll see if I can verify with these issues, with any luck they're on DC Universe. It may be an honest misinterpretation. --Tupka217 19:02, January 16, 2019 (UTC)
  • Accelerated Healing
    • There's nothing in SS #12. They are injured at the end of #11, but Teen Titans #15 is not available. The other two issues cited in the entry are also not "readily available".
  • Molecular Acceleration
    • The issue is not "readily available".
  • Danger Sense
    • Not "readily available".
There are many comics around, more than any of us can read. When someone adds something with a source, we accept that they're responsible enough to enter correct information. The wiki is too big to check everything. If someone questions that information, it should be done on the talk page, not by removing sourced content without explanation. It should definitely not be done by setting up new accounts.
Having checked the page history, it appears it was added by a user with questionable actions and it was previously missed because that user used an eff ton of different, but similarly-named accounts. I've rolled the entire page back to a version from August, it seems the only changes in the mean time were tons of spam edits by vandals. --Tupka217 16:32, January 17, 2019 (UTC)

Speaking of false information, someone was trying to add Damian Wayne as a weakness for Jon. Whoever they are, please don't do that. Or at least talk it out with the mods and see what they say. Thanks for the fix, Tupka217. User:ConvoyJeff26 (talk) 11:18, September 13, 2020 (UTC)

Character Image

Wouldn't it be nicer (and more representational) to change his photo to one where his eyes aren't... doing... that?? Maybe something like one of these, although I admit I'm not probably not the best judge. I just think the one we are using is a bit weird LOL

As current Superman author Tom Taylor has stated today that Jon Kent IS Superman, I think it's time to change his main alias and also his main image to some of the Superman Son of Kal-El series. FabioEscorpiao (talk) 19:22, 14 October 2021 (UTC)
Yeah, with the increased attention we probably should change it to Superman. Can't say I like the covers so far, though. Superman Son of Kal-El Vol 1 1 Virgin Variant.jpg is my favorite. --Tupka217 (talk) 19:45, 17 October 2021 (UTC)
Wonderful -- I prefer him being seen as Superman, but assumed Superboy would be what you guys would want (history trumping recency and all that). That seems like a good one to me, especially since it was his debut artwork for taking on the name. Reimeille (talk) 23:35, 17 October 2021 (UTC)
