    Been trying to figure that out. There's speculation that it's Booster Gold in disguise (time travel makes all things possible), but last week's 52 had Cassie (Wonder Girl) call him Kon El as in cloned Superboy that's SUPPOSED to be all dead and gone. Considering how the Teen Titans are right now after OYL, I don't think that it is Conner.

    It's Peter Parker's Uncle Ben.

    Is them attempting to reboot Superboy since can't DC not use the name "superboy' anymore?

    My money's on him being Booster or, failing that, Booster's ancestor Dan.

    Here's what we know.

    - Wonder Girl called him Kon El, Superboy's name.
    - He knows Booster Gold
    - Clark Kent knows him
    - He seems to be Metropolis based.
    - He was seen in the Batcave which means he knows where it is and who Batman is.

    There are also some people who believe it's just a superman robot. I sure hope to god it's not. Knowing DC though, it's very possible.

    It could also just be someone new. That would sure be a letdown.

    Why can't DC use the Superboy moniker anymore?

    They recently lost a big lawsuit with Jerry Siegel's family over the rights to Superboy. Basically, it was Siegel's original concept, but DC initially rejected the idea, then went ahead and did it after all while Siegel was fighting in WWII.

    This whole legal battle probably wouldn't have happened if DC hadn't screwed Siegel and Shuster out of ownership rights and royalties on Superman.

    I wonder if that's part of the reason that they killed off Superboy in the first place? Hopefully, that will all get straightened out soon. I'd like to see Superboy return sooner rather than later.

    Superboy did have a whole bunch of weird powers like telekinesis, though. Who's to say that coming back from the dead didn't upgrade him?

    Or maybe he's the Eradicator? He's stood in for Superman before and he has powers like that.

    You know wha tpisses me off about Superboy? The evil one trapped on OA at least. Where the hell did his bloody "S" go? I liked it. Kind of like Preus did but better.

    When last we saw Superboy-Prime, he was still caged near Oa. The "S" that he carved on his chest appeared as though it healed, as wounds often do, and thusly was no longer bloody.

    Of course, he was also naked. That struck me as odd. Like he wanted the Green Lanterns to look at his junk.
