    Lodbell is the greatest troll ever, and CBR knows how to captalize clicks from Lodbell haters.

    Yeah, I'm still having a lot of troubling swallowing this.

    I have an incredibly difficult time believing anyone cares enough about Jon Lane Kent for the Superboy book to not tank horrifically, as its already on thin ice as it is, and the last thing Supergirl needs is to be gone from the Superman line altogether. If anything its time for the exact opposite, stronger ties. We've already had two years of a disconnect. For the sake of argument though, should it turn out true, I'd say he, or Berganza, or both, would need to be gone from the Superman books. And that would be a heavy 180 for me. Considering all that, I'm still going with troll. But that in of itself would be irritating as Lobdell needs to stop provoking certain sections of the fanbase, and give the fans who took the time to be at that con real information.

    Both ways just kind of stupid, be it real or joke.

    If ppl can't tell this is a joke then they have HUGE problems.

    Superboy is a clone named kon-el and Conner kent with TTK,that will never change.

    Mutation is a bitch

    Bring back kon-el/Conner kent

    So lets see here, Lobell claims that he's going to go and change up Kon for Jon and pretty much piss off readers in the process. Not that I mind the idea of a Lois and Clark son, it's just that it plays into the issue of you know "We can't have them together." *sighs*

    Except that we're dealing with DC right now and people are app to try things to get readers. My guess they're trying to win over Lois/Clark fans by saying "Look Look! They have a son, he's superboy now." So while I'm taking it with a grain of salt, given how things are going I wouldn't be suprised if this stunt plays out.

    If this is actually a joke I will laugh at CBR's "journalism".

    It wouldn't make sense for this too actually happen anyway seeing as Superboy looks to be alive and well in Forever Evil and that supposedly takes place after Krypton Returns.

    Yeah. A joke would be nice. Though, if the thing about Supergirl is true, is she joining Teen Titans?

    Aren't Krypton Returns and The Trial of Kid Flash supposed to have loose connections, suggesting that Superboy is time traveling in both stories?

    I usually take any news CBR brings up with a grain of salt but if this is true then whatever. Superboy will come back eventually.

    Its a sad day for DC when I would actually welcome this change to see if anything good could come out of it. Seriously if it was Pre-52 superboy i'd be mad but with new 52 I just don't care.
