The Metropolis Kid

Superboy is known as the unofficial state hero of Hawaii, one of the patron heroes of Metropolis, a member in good standing of the Titans, a member of Team Superman, and of course as the sole offspring (via cloning) of Superman and heir apparent to his mantle.


So once upon a time the Man of Steel died. Four impostors showed up, and the coolest of them was the Kid who would be Superboy. Superboy was the result of experimentation by the Cadmus Project splicing the DNA of Superman with that of Lex Luthor. Superboy was rapidly aged to a teenager, but his development was ended prematurely when a gang of Cadmus clones busted him out.

Superboy quickly made a debut in the media, a cocky new super-hero on the block and celebrity in the making, going so far as to call himself Superman until the original Big Blue came back from the dead. At this point the Kid relinquished the trademark to the big guy and proudly took on the mantle of Superboy, embarking on a life of adventure.

Following this, Superman welcomed Superboy into his family as both Kon-El and Conner Kent.


Kon is extremely close to Tim Drake and Bart Allen of Effusia.
