So... how should we handle this guy? Obviously, Clark Kent, Jr. (Earth-Two) would be inaccurate. Maybe Clark Kent, Jr. (Alternate Earth-Two), or maybe Clark Kent, Jr. (Earth-Two, Alternate)???? --Brian Kurtz 18:06, 8 February 2008 (UTC)

Clark Kent, Jr. (Alternate Earth-Two). The Clever Guy Talk 11:57, 9 February 2008 (UTC)
As stated with "Bruce Wayne, Jr. (Alternate Earth-Two)" to put Clark Kent Jr on (Alternate Earth-Two) suggests a definite linear continuation of the Earth-Two basis which can be argued as again Superman Sr was of the so called "Golden Age" but unlike Kal-L who was not able to have his own direct biological children and never adapted the costuming shown in the original Super-son stories as well as having a Flash who was a parallel to Barry Allen and NOT Jay Garrick.
I suggest the UNofficial line of "Clark Kent, Jr. (Earth-E)" if you are going to absolutely mandate a definite Earth source even though it was a fan based designation of "everything else" to be as broad and inclusive of everything that was not specified.
Again as with Batman Jr there is no need for the Earth designation as there is no Superman Jr in the 52 multiverse despite what was said about Earth-16 and then rebuked with Christopher Kent being the only one like him on his own Earth, thus him being neither the son of Superman nor having his own son who would in turn be Superman Jr.
And regarding issues of disambiguation, the title of Superman, Jr. has only been used in the post crisis once to refer to the child reverted primary Superman. Thus no one is going to be confused whenever anyone looks for Superman, Jr.

Ah-Ha! Found the correct name. Earth-16. Source: Wikipedia:List of DC Multiverse worlds#The 52 --Brian Kurtz 17:14, 5 April 2008 (UTC)

Ahhhhh, crap. I went and moved the page without re-reading the above discussion. I'll give her a fix-a-roo. --Brian Kurtz 17:35, 5 April 2008 (UTC)
Super-Sons
The name, throughout his entire first appearance in WF #154, is Kal-El, Jr. There might be a change of name on the "Super-Sons" saga of the 70's (I'll get there eventually), but considering the evidence on the right, I'm moving the page. Just letting everyone know.
