"Why let them tell us what to do? It's simple. Get on board or get out of the way."

Respect for Connor Kent, the clone of Superman and Lex Luthor. Because he was cloned from Superman, he is granted Kryptonian physiology and abilities, like super strength, super hearing and Infrared vision, but because he also has human D.N.A. in him, he lacks the powers of flight and heat vision. He was speed-grown by Cadmus and is technically only half a year old, but is just as smart and physically grown as any eighteen year old.

This thread will be divided into the following sections:

  • Strength
  • Durability
  • Speed
  • Senses
  • Infrared Vision
  • Shields

Senses

Being cloned from Kryptonian D.N.A., Superboy has super senses just like his template, Superman.

While Aqualad is being shocked by Cadmus scientists, Superboy is able to hear him whisper to him even though he had left the room and walked a far ways away. Video is mirrored in case anyone asks, but watch from 01:33:

Superboy is able to hear the crunching of branches from soldiers hundreds of feet away:

1) Superboy is able to hear Bane talking to his companions in a low whisper while his own team are thinking of what to do with the prisoners. Watch from 00:58.

2) Superboy is then able to hear an incoming helicopter despite it being far enough out that it wasn't visible at all on the horizon. Watch from 04:20.

When Nightwing and Aqualad, who was undercover, came up with the plan to "kill" Artemis, they used a certain type of poison that stopped her heart/put her in a near-death-like trance. They had to use this method to fool Superboy who could ordinarily hear her heartbeat, since he claimed that she was indeed dead because he could no longer hear her:

Superboy is able to hear alien walkers coming after him, Miss Martian, Beast Boy, and Alanna. Watch from 06:00:

Infrared Vision

Instead of Heat Vision, Superboy is able to use Infrared Vision ans see heat signatures on people and animals.

Here he uses it to confirm that Krolotean Walkers are following him, Miss Martian, Beast Boy, and Alanna:

Superboy uses his Infrared vision to see through trees and confirm that a squad of enemy soldiers who surveying the area:

Superboy sees through windows to learn that a person wielding a sword is also present with Trang:

Shields

These aren't shields as in the defensive equipment or ability, but patches given to Superboy by Lex Luthor. These patches allow his Kryptonian D.N.A. to completely take over his Human D.N.A. and allow him the full scope of Kryptonian powers, which include flight, heat vision, and X-Ray vision. This also increases his own strength and speed.

Flight

@thevivas: You know, I'm looking forward to see the next series you bust out the feats for. I'm curious how far your reach extends.

NIce, though you forgot what is probably the best durability feat in the entire series.

Great job putting this together. This is probably the last time that Conner will ever get adapted into something outside the comics but I was satisfied with how they used him in YJ.

@theexile285: How accurate was he to the source material? I loved him in the show, so I'm curious!

@infantfinite128: Well powerset wise, he's much weaker because comic Connor gradually aquires all the powers of Superman without any outside help as well an ability called tactile telekinesis which allows him to move things with his mind.

Personality wise, he's different as well but that's not a bad thing given how well he was handled in YJ.

@theexile285: Cool, thanks! The only comic book Superboy I was familiar with is from Peter David's Young Justice (which I loved).

@infantfinite128: Yeah, that's a good one. Geoff John's Teen Titans is another one as well Superboy: The Boy of Steel and karl kesel's 90s Superboy Issues.

YJ Superboy is also a casual bullet timer. He appeared out of nowhere and intercepted multiple bullets after they'd been fired.

@theexile285: Thanks! I forgot that I read some of Kessel's Superboy as well. Even when Superman didn't click with me, I always liked Superboy. I should check out Teen Titans!

Very nice; I was especially surprised by the speed part!

I was wondering, did it ever state that Superboy can only use X-ray vision with the shields? Some of the infrared vision feats look like they might be x-ray feats, since I don't think infrared radiation passes through objects, but I'm not sure.

This sort of reminds me that I should probably finish the several respect threads I've been working on lately; the amount of effort you've put into these is quite impressive!

@amethystgravity: Off the top of my head I can't remember if they outright said no X-Ray vision (the wiki might have though) but I could only find him using it with a Shield on.

And thanks again man haha, and yeah you should! It'll make it easier for you too when you debate with those characters! Lol

Just a question. Does Wonder Girl have the same sort of feats that Conner does or is she still above her in strength?

#23 Posted by TheVivas (19127 posts) - - Show Bio

@soldierofel: I'm pretty sure Conner is stronger, or if not, they're around the same level of strength. I'm still in the process of reading the comics, but all she has are the ones From a few episodes of Season 2 so far (I made a RT for her if you wanna check it out, just gotta Google "YJ Wonder Girl Respect Thread").

@gxrevolution: @amethystgravity: @terry2012: @soldierofel: @thevivas:

I’m a huge fan of superboy in all forms as long as it’s kon I did kinda like future Jon Kent, I’m so happy that we got him back with season three I’m kinda bummed that they lost his rage stuff, he was so awesome season 1 -2. I hope that we will get to see him evolve I thought that in season 2 the reach were going to use a metabomb n it would unlock his kryptonian powers maybe not the full extent but atleast give him flight I personally think that ttk would better n follow the comics but I also love the kryptonian Powers. I’m thinking that he will get experimented on or atleast get the shit kicked out of him n it will damage his dna n it will unlock his powers. N on my last thing did anyone else notice that he seems to weaker now with the new season I’m not sorry I know geoforces uncle was strong but he was nothing but stone n kryptonian even /half kryptonian beats , paper, scissors, n definitely rock. Wtf is with wolf 🐺 he is just a big white ball of awesomeness let wolf out man n now that yj is in adult form let him go savage then burp n go cuddle next to kon lol
