    I mean if Jon was aged up to about Damian's age, about 3 years, this wouldn't be as big of an issue. Still an issue, but not as bad.
    Too bad Bendis took it away from us. :/

    I wanted it as well but I say DC took it away from us, considering they had about three years to make it happen but they practically erased Conner's existence. Bendis brought him back but he wants a different dynamic between these two.

    Man it's so much mixed views on Jon right now. Stuff like this and erasing other supporting characters is probably a factor in why Superman's family are nowhere near as popular as the Bat family. Appreciation threads on this board barely reaches the 30s while batmans were in 50s with fan art alone.

    I'm holding out hope we can get this undone and Jon can be deaged. This thing was all Bendis's idea according to his reddit AMA and not editorial's plan to get rid of marriage/family. But yeah if this doesn't get undone, I believe Jon will probably fall into limbo and Supersons as we knew it will be gone for good. But I'm not giving into despair and giving up on Jon yet. I believe any damage Bendis ends up doing can be fixed.

    Well, to an extent, we get to see the Bat Family grow as characters (much to Didio's chagrin).

    Other than Clark, Lois, Kara (at times), and when he's alive, Connor, things like what happened to Jon have happened to many of his predecessors as well. I was hoping to see Jon and Damian grow up and become their own heroes. Not a random age up, but like what happened with the Bat Kids in general. Seeing them mature and grow as characters.

    Yeah, I'm wondering if this was the ulterior motive to Bendis aging Jon up, spoilers:
    so Bendis could lay a claim to introducing a brand new Super-Kid that he was soley responsible for and who's narrative he could control right from the start
    end of spoilers

    I think spoilers:
    it's as simple as it meant for us to know that Jon and Kon are not the same age even though Jon's aged up by seven years. That and the beard. If Kon's been gone/missing for several years, he could be in his mid twenties, well outside of Jon's new age. Bendis clearly doesn't want them occupying the same space in terms of their stories, Jon a teen and Kon a family man. There won't be any stepping on anyone's toes.

    I agree.

    Age aside (which can still be ambiguous for Conner), Bendis has put Jon and Conner in situations where they can not be interchangeable.
