    I thought Tim's identity was going to be a gag based on how the solicit was written, but, nah, it's totally legit. I just wonder what Bendis wants to call Conner now? I mean, Tim is less hard because he's changed his name before, but this will be a first for Conner. I wonder if Conner will change his costume same as Tim?

    Or maybe it may just be as simple Conner keeping the Superboy name because Jon will mostly going back and forth from the present and future like the classic Superboy? Or maybe he'll be Guardian like we all assumed?
    I'm going to laugh if Bendis goes for the throwback and calls him "Raver."

    I guess they can mantain the costume of Conner even if he stop to be Superboy. Unlike Tim's Robin costume, the current costume of Conner would not be necessarily associated with the Superboy identity.

    Conner would just need a new identity that start with S.


    PS: The solicitation of Young Justice #7 is an ironic case, because it seems Bendis has to delay the change of Tim Drake identity until Young Justice #8.

    I honestly see little reason why, if they planned on changing Conner's codename, they just wouldn't do it right alongside Tim in Young Justice. They easily could've framed that upcoming issue for both of them. For this reason I'm doubting his is gonna be changed. Likely Bendis and co. are using the logic of Jon going to the Legion as enough of a buffer as to not bother. Maybe things change later on, but right now I'm not seeing much evidence of any plans of a change here.

    TBH I wouldn't be half surprised if the lighthearted, joking solicitation in the issue where Tim changes his amounts to him not changing it at all either, and just getting the new costume.

    Bendis has confirmed in an interview that it will be rebranding and new costumes

    Also, Jon and Conner will meet at some point, so the change of identity for Conner may happen after that.

    It seems Bendis has say the change of identity for Tim is delayed to Young Justice #8:

    *Shrugs* Conner might just go Kon-El like classic Young Justice minus the name Superboy? Maybe Bendis making a modern day Mon-El comparison?

    But honestly, I think it'll all fit into place once Conner gets his feet on the ground to start this new chapter in his life. He obviously has some new ideas for what being a hero should mean, he's very much interested in doing it his way, and given his new issues with how the world works, he may come into very real conflict with Superman and how he goes about changing the world for the better.

    That seems like good enough grounds for a brand change.

    Wouldn't a better route be just to call him Super?

    Keeps the S.

    Keeps the line of branding for him.

    Fits with his Cocky and at times Corny Attitude.

    Fits with the Family.

    And it's fun to boot.

    It's okay, but a bit too lineage-oriented for me. I like something more individual.

    I don't like that the son of Superman is named Jonathan Kent, as well. I understand why it's that way in story, but for posting about characters, it gets confusing. It's never good when two characters have the same name. And I also think for a company like DC, where licensing is such a big deal, they would want to have different names for trademark purposes.

It gave me all kinds of questions as a little boy.

    Oh thanks for that, I somehow totally missed that article and it was 5 months ago.

    Whole thing still seems like a big mess to me but hopefully it ends up a net positive for Kon and Tim, whom I still believe are vastly superior characters.

    I hope Kon changes his name too. It's about time those two graduate and move on. Give the new guys some breathing room. Kon will be fine even without the Superboy name. He's popular and has a lot of outside media exposure.

    Tim I wish the best.

    I agree. I'll go further and say I wish fewer characters in general would be named after others, in general, even with different last names. And that the non-hero/less prominent parent would seem to get some say in the baby names. This definitely counts variations like Jai, Irey, and Mar'i. Dads are the important ones (in these cases), so kids names are related to their loved ones. Stands out more with Wally's since the others (Mar'i, Lyta, Arthur Jr., Jon) are only children and picking from one side or the other at least makes sense.

    Actually, I feel the same way about the constantly re-used code names - and it means I can't use code names for tag searches.

    But the thing is nobody calls jon "Jonathan kent". For most he is just jon. Its like nobody calling dick "richard".
    People associate jon with son of superman and Jonathan kent with father of superman.
    I mean, who else was clark going to name his kid after? Jon is short, sweet and has a legacy.
