How Powerful Is Superboy's TK?

From my understanding, DCNU Superboy does not have to touch something to lift it as did nineties Superboy, yet I do not recall him using his telekinesis away from his body very often. The only time I can think of for sure is when he grabbed Kid Flash in Teen Titans. I've only read Teen Titans. Has Superboy used TK very much in his own title?

Specifically, I would like to know how much he can lift, how long is his range, and can he use his telekinesis to life multiple objects at once. Any answers?

I was under the impression that for DCnU-Superboy to telekinetically lift an object, he has to have touched it once, but does not have to maintain direct contact with it to control it.  Can't help you with the rest (at the moment, anyway).

It hasn't really been said but he's been using it like crazy and it seems pretty effective. He uses it a lot and that like, all he uses too so it must be pretty good.

no he doesnt need to touch somethijg for his full TK to work,and yes it can push or actually hurt supergirl.

his powers are-

mimicked strength,flight speed,invulnerability,now at actual kryptonian level.

classic TTK tricks still possible,even if we havent seen them yet.

full TK

tactile sensory ability

genetic memory


quite possibly a mental defense against attacks against his mind,like Kiva did,maybe genetic in nature idk.
