i am a lil pissed that bleeding cool early today ran a BS story about how this issue retconned the first issue, because Harvest actually wanted his scientists to deliver the poison to SB,so that he would have to fight to live,even though the scientists dont know Harvests goals,to the scientists they were just killing a failed experiment.this is not a retcon,its Harvests reasoning shown for the first time,wouldnt be the first time a employer had plans that they didnt let their employees in on..
this issue also brings gravity back as a actual part of kryptonians lack of spaceexporation,and taken further a part of the reasoning for their powers.so absorbing solar energy AND having incredible gravitional pressures both are factors in kryptonians massive powers.superboy could realistically have no solar based powers,but still be super strong,and durable just from a evolutionary genetic standpoint.
i also read somewhere where someone was confused and thought because kon didnt consciously remember his subroutines Harvest ran under fairchilds vr training that it was a recton too,but i dont think that person understands that Harvest was working on a level different than conscious or subconscious,and that he wouldnt remember anything,but that it would be ingrained into who he was,even when he doesnt know it.btw this might ne what kon saw and unlocked when he was touched by kara.subliminal messages are not consciously ableto be aware of.
Harvest created superboy because he wanted him to have the same lack kf empathy and crazy ass never stop zeal the original clones had in his clone.he didnt say he wanted his clone to have kryptonians massive powers,just the crazy clone defiencies,which i think is interesting,funny,and something important when we factor in that SB is a hybrid clone.
that whos who entry really bothers me,TTK is more than strength,flight,and invulnerability ugh.
