    What bothers me about Superboy pre-FP is Geoff John's assumption that the only way to make him grow as a person to is make him suffer, and in doing so, made him insufferable. I couldn't reconcile the brash hipster who was angered whenever anyone called him Superboy, with the moping dope who ran away to the farm to watch television all day while the world was getting blown up in Infinite Crisis. It was almost a relief when Prime showed up and flap-jacked him all over Smallville.

    Y'know, I still don't care for black and red S-shields. But that's me.

    I like how he's moved away from the generic T-Shirt and jeans look. I hope he wears something like that in the comics.

    I really like the fingerless gloves for some reason. I liked it on the TT #1 cover and I like it in this YJ image. I can't help it, at heart I'm an late 80s-early 90's child.

    I think the whole biker look actually works for this Superboy, who can't fly and uses a super-cycle for transportation.

    they just gave SB a origin that generically is like Match's.

    SB imo should not be a brightly dressed superhero like superman,he should at first glance look more earth bound,like a hero that is ome of us,or maybe has flaws.

    he is part kryptonian,and a clone,but is very much human,and should be the human superman.

    the black and red S shield makes him look different than superman,and shows that he isnt a perfect shining example of hero,like kals does.

    it actually fits better with his new origins(YJ and NuDCU) he was made by human scientists,for nefarious reasons,and wasnt a perfect clone.

    i wouldnt be surprised if he doesnt wear something close to the YJ season 2 look in the comics someday,course he is getting that S shield tattoo,so i dont know how much they wamt to show it off,and i still dont know how that tat will stay on his arm.

    I don't know how much his initial Teen Titans #1 cover costume will actually appear in the comic, they might choose to make another design for his future non-TRON costume.

    At this point the tron suit has grown on me enough that I wouldn't mind at all if they just kept it.

    Though I still also like the design shown on the TT #1 covers.

    Supergirl said "Don't take this the wrong way, but I've found a place where I can make a difference. Where I'm more than Superman's kid cousin" as she's more than just associated with Superman. Supergirl is the same character from “Superman The Animated Series” just like Superman: Kara In-ze from planet Argo and not an El.

    It's a message board. You can object, agree, comment, whatever on something or what someone says. No one said anything to you, but you sid something in response to something said to me. I can’t do the same with what you said? I’m not posting in all caps or “!!!!!!!” or raging. I disagreed and I’m very calm.

    Anyone can like or dislike anything. But to make a generalization on what’s “more accessible” and paint a pic with no basis is a whole other thing. You and a few paint the pic of “what was originally done is dense and hard to comprehend” when it wasn’t and that one has a stronger tie to Superman than the other when that’s not true. Not based on opinion but on the fact that the character gained a lot of popularity from the story. And as far as Johns Superboy being “simplistic”, you have a hybrid “clone” of two people with a constantly revised origin versus a clone of just one with straightforward story. And now we have a clone with three people in the mix versus a clone of two people versus a clone of one.

    Karl Kesel: "A few weeks after I took the assignment, there was a Superman summit where we figured out how to bring him back from the dead. I thought it would be nice if each of the Supermen somehow reflected the titles of their books. I remembered that the tagline from the old Superboy comic was ‘the adventures of Superman when he was a boy' and I thought Superboy should be the character in Adventures. I thought no one would go for it, but at the summit, we had a huge list of all the possible ways Superman could come back and Superboy was one of them. I really stomped to get it. I'm really happy that penciller Tom Grummett and I ended up with this Superman because he's a really fun character."

    They could have made him a straight up clone but didn't. Number one, and the one a few seem to forget, is because it would defeat the purpose of the "Reign of the Supermen" story as none of the Supermen were Superman resurrected. He was presented as a "clone of Superman" to lay claim to being Superman resurrected, not to actually be a clone. That was his "angle". If he actually was a clone of Superman as he advertised, there would be no question as to who the true resurrected Superman was out of the four. That is why it was pointed out in the book that it was a misconception that he was Superman's clone. Every other Superman had the misconception that they were Superman brought back with their own supporters, but had more to their individual stories. Being hung up on "he's a clone of Superman" is just ignoring what was actually going on and done in the book.

    The reign of the supermen superboy is by far the best. If not, he would not be here today. The rest are poor substitutes of this superboy. However, the DCNU. Superboy is pretty good so far, i wish him luck.
