What about The Black Ring arc with Luthor? That did not even tickle your fancy?I actually have to say, that that's kind of what I liked about Superboy's situation. Superboy was cloned from an evil man, but it had become a non-issue. How often do we see that in superhero comic books? Usually, it's some big thing that sticks with a character forever. The whole "daddy issues" thing has been done with so many other characters. It was done with Orion. It was done with Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch. It was done with Shand Chi. It was done with the Son of Satan (and just try topping that one for "most evil dad"). It was done, most famously, with Luke Skywalker. They're doing it right now in the Young Justice cartoon with Artemis. That's one of the biggest problems I had with the revamp of Superboy in the pages of Teen Titans. I felt like he had been changed into a character I had already seen in a million other places.
My other big problem is who they chose to be the DNA donor. Okay, I know there are a lot of Luthor fans around here. I know he's supposed to be Superman's archenemy and an important character. However, I don't think I've ever really enjoyed any of the Luthor stories I've read. He's just not a fun villian to read about. Yet, DC seems to use him in everything Superman-related anyway. But then, I prefer my DC super-villians over-the-top and colorful. Luthor's just so low-key in everything except his exposure.
