Ok here is a very very very stuped question but... Is Superman Prime a good guy are a bad guy? Why im asking this question is until a couple of months ago I never even heard of Superman Prime and I know he beat Superman plus the JLA but in his own universe is he good or bad?

Yeah...no. I'm sure Superman was hoping to redeem Prime but all of those hopes and dreams were instantly crushed once it was revealed who The Time Trapper was this time around. I don't think I'll ever be able to consider Prime a good guy again not after all he's done, but I'll reserve final judgment until after I have read Legion of Three Worlds #5.

Bad bad bad.

Unless I'm missing some key issues, the last time Prime was good was during Crisis on Infinite Earths back in the 80s and he only had a few appearances prior.

"And you're dead, you dumb shrimp!" LOL, that's right up there with "I'll kill you to DEATH!" Also love the expression on Prime's face in the picture Psychotime posted.

Dude,this guy is more cazier than Bizarro. I hope DC doesn't get any ideas about a Supergirl-Prime or the JLA would been in really big trouble.

He's clearly evil at this point. He was good once but that was a long time ago.

I don't think Superboy Prime is completly evil I would say he is more insane and missunderstood. 
 
He only acts evil because he want's to bring back his earth so that he can be a hero and he is willing to go to the extreme to bring his universe back.  
 
He is not evil he simply trying to bring back something important to him that he lost. 

I think once he manages to bring Earth Prime back or find his perfect earth he will eventualy become emotionly and mentaly stable. 
 
He is not actualy evil his simply a teenage extremist.

yea, he's just trying to bring back his earth, in his eyes it was perfect, he had friends and family their and he views the earth that replaced it as being broken where the heroes are no better then the villians

Superboy Prime is more newtrol than good or evil. Sure he has done bad things but he only did those bad things because he is trying to bring back his earth or bring back an perfect earth. He actualy has saved the day from time to time and he has done bad things from time to time.

 
Superboy Prime simply does bad things because he is trying to bring back what he lost and he considers the new universe flawed with inefective heroes and bad vilions. 
 
He is not evil he simply uses extremist methods to bring back what he has lost.

whatever his motives are, his actions and the means he uses make him very evil. his motives do nothing to change the fact he is a psychotic mass murderer.
