I just read the first couple of issues of Superman Rebirth and I have 2 questions:

1- Is DC going the direction that Dragon Ball Z took years ago when they hyped Gohan to be

Goku's successor, in which Superman's son is going to replace him ?

2- Is Superman's son stronger than Superman himself ?

I seriously doubt they will replace Clark as Superman. If they do it will most likely only be a temporary thing.

Jon is only half Kryptonian, so I don't think he'll become as strong, or stronger than Clark.

It's highly unlikely they'll replace a character that's never been out of print for 75+ years. Jon is merely a way to tell new Superman stories. He may succeed him in "a" future.

2- Is Superman's son stronger than Superman himself ?

Nope, at least not now. He will have a more expansive/different power-set than his father though.

eventually yes.

not replacing him, I doubt Superboy will age much during the run of Rebirth (before another reboot lol). But there will definitely be a lot of implied remarks, and storylines showing the future where Superboy is more powerful.

@nerevarine_11: we'll just have to wait and see I guess. Perhaps when he's older we'll see his full potential, but if he does go down the Gohan route, he becomes weak as f*ck in the end xD.

He'll solo Darkseid and then want to go to college and become a professor. A time will come when He'll even forget where he puts his superboy costume.

@solid_snake97: And then Supes gives Doomsday a pill that amps his healing and evolution so that Jon will have a "fair fight" with something that wants to murder him.

Afterwards Doomsday will create Doomsday Jrs. that will start attacking the JLA.

Jon will go Super Kryptonian and he'll basically become as strong as Superman Prime.

@nerevarine_11: and then several years later Superman gets the bright idea to let Jon and Damian fight Darkseid.

lol the idea of Damian fighting DS is hilarious.

A future story with the two of them grown up could happen.

Not for now they will stay as kids for a while.
