    lol Here we go. Like the Nightwing fans who keep track of how many fights he wins or loses and think it's "disrespectful" when a writer has him lose a fight. Petty and bitter.

    I actually think geoff should have made kon from teen titans exactly like this,explained the human as a stabilizer for his kryptonian dna,but also dampens his full kryptonian potential.

    BUT i would have kept everything else from the kesel SB,instead of making him have "limited" TTK ,kept his TTK exactly the way it was at the end of his own series.

    Considering one of my favorite aspects of Superboy is that he usually gets wiped and fights with everything he got and is extremely resourceful, no. It's not like that. As I said, Superboy should be a champion of the juniors, but in YJ he is not treated like that at all. If you compare Superman's fights in JLU to Superboy's fights in YJ, they are on completely different scales. Wally's treatment is even worse than Superboy's. To be clear, I am talking about season 1. I am much more satisfied with season 2's treatment of Superboy.

    Power levels are not the way I judge how interesting a story is or how engaging a character is. Not since about age 6, maybe.

    You seem to have forgotten that we are discussing power sets. I never mentioned these characters are not interesting because their abilities have been downplayed. I'm disappointed in that they have been downplayed. There is a difference. Now if you are going to continue to discuss comics with me then start acting like an adult, not some child stubbornly throwing a fit.

    So 6 ppl want nothing but kryptonian,and 11 want some combination that has TTK involved...so far.

    Of course ive said plenty of times that TTK is a essential part of who SB is.

    Ive never wanted kon to have supermans exact same powers,part because there is only one superman,two,because SB is a umique character,and three, because he has never been a exact clone of supermans,he has always had human in the mix or all together,mutation or change should be a part of his dna and powerset.

    I actually thought back in the kesel superboy series that SB was gonna get a TTK sensory ability when he was escaping from the Agenda base,after meeting his perfected clone Match.he was moving through the a/c shafts and it seemed he knew how to get out ,or atleast should have,now that would have completed one helluva great TTK powerset back in great series.

    Kon is NOT a full clone,and has partial human dna,or all human dna,so why would his powers be exactly like supermans,they shouldnt be,having other dna or altered dna in his makeup should make differences in his powerset.

    I like YJ although characters are weaker there then standard in the DCU for Comics so I vote Mixed Both Limited.

    Because they were designed to be. He's not just a clone/hybrid, he is genetically engineered.

    Really,did you read the part where i said"exactly like supermanss" ??
    Because im pretty sure he had a lil power callled TTK from the start,and superman NEVER had.kon was genetically enginnered to have powers like heat vison and super hearing,and be a solar battery,but he was never EXACT,that was NEVER in the story at all back then.

    I like Kon to be a weaker version of Superman. I think the Young Justice cartoon is off to the right start, though I don't care for the idea that Superboy isn't aging. I'd also welcome the possibility that maybe he will eventually gain the ability to fly and develop heat vision. I haven't followed the New 52 Superboy much, so I don't know what his exact genetic make up is, but if we're still talking about a human/Kryptonian hybrid, I figure his powers should be somewhere in between, which to me is another way of saying a weaker Kryptonian.
