I guess I see that a little in the changes to Jon. He's acknowledged that a lot of people aren't crazy about it but he's coming at it in a way he thinks is respectful of Jon by not changing his personality or character (meaning he's still the same good kid and not Superboy Prime) and telling a Superman story. Your mileage will definitely vary on that I suppose. I don't have a great attachment to Jon, but I can definitely understand the frustration and worry. Similarly, he's said numerous times that he has no intention of breaking up Clark and Lois. But that doesn't preclude a public breakdown of Clark Kent and Lois Lane's marriage, because they'd technically still be together and in love just through a different facet of the Clark/Superman facade.
    He might not think that he is changing something fundamental about the character. But he is.10 year old A kid and 18 year old guy views the world differently. Jon had a sense of wonder, naivety and Admiration from that feeling. One of the best moments for Jon was when he found out his dad was "The superman" his reaction to it.

    A kid could say he would marry popcorn and think girls are yucky.. Etc get away with it.17 year old guy cannot. You can't just paste a personality and attitude of 10 year old onto a 17 year old dude write the character similar to previous writers. And Think it is some great writing . He hasn't done anything cool with the character, that is my problem.

    his only addition seems to be "pa" thing, which is unoriginal. Jurgens made base for the character. Tomasi gave his adventures an aesthetic, some support cast and tone which was cool. Bendis is not doing something that can adds on to character. He seems to be replacing/reinventing the character without going into in depth planning on what the new jon character should be. So, he just writes him as Jurgens wrote him which is playing it safe and he fails at that too. It is not working(atleast for me) and falling flat because of this approach. Respecting the character is one thing making him generic is another.Jurgen nor tomasi ever did that. Jon holding Superman's cape and levitating/trying is one of the coolest Jon moments. It came from Jurgens. Alien sounds he makes, without any context and meaning is annoying. Atleast give that some context that has some heart to it(something like the new broly backstory with green alien could work wonders) . It feels like he has hiccups or something right now. I just want something cool and heart touching from the character. Not some shitty poop joke.

    Jesus christ, the hate boners that people have for Bendis is so ridiculous that some of the things stated don't make any sense.
    I’m just saying, between tweets, interviews and is Reddit thing I feel like he’s said “at least I didn’t make him evil!” in like 8 times at this point. That’s a weird thing to be so proud of.

    Not so weird when you take into account just how many people kept saying "he's the new Superboy Prime" or "Bendis is making Jon evil!!!!!" Given how that was one of the prevailing theories going around, I'm not really surprised.

    Like, c'mon, my guy. You're grown. You know what the internet is. It's misinformation and unfounded rumors (Bleedingcool butters their freakin toast with headlines like "Jon Kent is evil now.") bombarding 24/7.

    Fair enough, but the real issue is, what if he gets a solo book? They don't want to lumber him with a name they can't use on a comic cover. Better to use something Marvel can't stake a claim to.

    Well, after Young Justice #3, I'm pretty sure that Conner will abandon Superboy mantle.

    I personally always liked the idea that they do the same with CONNER as they did with CHRIS KENT and Thara Ak-Var....

    So Conner gets in big trouble and he feels something awaken in him which is the spirit of the famous kryptonian FLAMEBIRD...
    and this makes him stronger and he is like Thara Ak-Var and goes by the new name FLAMEBIRD... which makes a lot of sense, because Flamebird was a Kryptonian Superhero and so he could take the name and at the moment no one uses it....

    Yeah, looks like Jon isn't the only Superboy to be aged up!

    I’m pretty confident Kon will change his name. spoilers:
    No dad is going to let someone else call him “boy”.
    end of spoilers

    My guess is that his wife and kid are was created by his own imagination, and the only way to save the rest of the YJ team is to give it up.


    Scion
    You want your SB/kon-el/Conner kent fix

    Read and watch both YJs
    Watch Reign of the Supermen
    He is coming to Titans
    He might be back in Injustice

    I brought this up in the other thread but time does flow differently in Gemworld. Amethyst goes from 13 on Earth to around 20 in Gemworld. When she leaves, she becomes 13 again. This could be the case for Conner when he leaves.
