Taking us back to a time when Superboy was just hatched, indeed this series starts with him still in the tube, this story focuses upon a Superboy without the inherent moral code with which he has always behaved in the DCU and instead we find ourselves on an adventure with a character more akin to an out of control five year old with superpowers. In addition the entire series is infused with a new and fresh sense of humor that I for one greatly appreciated.
I recommend this series to all comics' fans, but especially those who like me feel that DC comic books are on the whole a little too hidebound and stuck in their ways. Two thumbs up, give this one a try.
I thought it was a great introduction to Superboy in the new 52 and I highly recommend it.
I did miss some Wonder Girl / Teen Titans stuff, I guess it's part of that book too.
Instead of a stand alone book, much like the Batman franchise, this is Superboy's story in an ever growing story spanning several titles. You will get lost from time to time, but it doesn't really HURT anything.
I liked Superboy, I liked the villains, I liked the story.
But the lack of completion bothered me slightly. You'll need to buy some other books to get the full story.
Now onto the New 52 Superboy, he is created by a new shady organization called N.O.W.H.E.R.E. and has some big plans for him. During the course of the book, its shows him being confused, not knowing right from wrong, and getting in some big fights. I think the plot and art was good. The main idea of the story is Superboy wondering who he is, what's his purpose, deciding if N.O.W.H.E.R.E can be trusted or not. The art to me was good as it comes. Compare to art from other New 52 books like Batman, its at the borderline of decent and good. The only thing that bug me was some of the faces in the smaller panels of the book. Other than that the art was good. I think to some Superboy fans, they might not like the character at first. To me he's more an Anti-Hero in this series. Some of his actions are questionable like burning a Christmas tree, almost killing a couple of people when he's pissed. The only other thing that bugged me, aside from the faces in the small panels, was this series needs to be read with Teen Titans with a couple of issues.Read more ›
This story is amazing. Not only do they really show how much Superboy's tactile telekinesis powers can do some true damage (as well as allow for one pretty extreme weakness), but it also does a spectacular job of recognizing the real issues behind his origin as a clone.
But I still miss the sun glasses, leather jacket, and cocky attitude of the days of waiting for Superman to come back...
No, but seriously, this is a must read. I'm really excited to see where else they've taken this series now that they're resurrected the character yet again.
