    So far he has all the classic powers though it's been suggested once due to his unique biology he may develop extra powers and potentialy surpass his father but whether anything will come of that?

    I think at the very least it should be shown being half human makes him more resistant to things like kryptonite and red sunlight.

    Yeah. He seems to be operating under Saiyan logic, where being a hybrid makes him naturally stronger.

    So far we haven't really seen anything to suggest he's any different from Clark. The closest he's got to a new power is New 52 Superman's solar flare

    I also like the idea of him being half human meaning he's less susceptible to things like Kryptonite and magic. So far that doesn't seem to be the case though. In the rare times he's been exposed to Kryptonite, he didn't seem to he more resistant to it than Clark. No idea how magic affects him though.

    He's the best thing to happen to Superman in the 2010s.

    I hope we get more from the character in the next year and even in the next decade.

    He definitely helped make me care about Superman for a brief period. Almost overthrew Damian as my second favorite DC character. But with the way he is now...I can't really call myself a fan anymore.

    What's happened to Jon in the past year or so has made me feel a very rare level of sadness that I haven't felt since we lost the Pre-Flashpoint Universe. It's not often that something pertaining to fictional characters actually upsets me so hats off to Tomasi for making the kid so damn great.

    Similar story I was largely indifferent towards Superman for years but it was Jon that finally got me into the world of S.

    I loved Super Sons so much I found myself reading Rebirth, then Action and New-Superman as well and once I was all caught up I started looking up old trades and stories of not just Superman but Superboy and Supergirl, it all just finally clicked for me.

    And sadly it took less than a year of Bendis to make me drop everything Super-related again (though I'm still reading Supergirl) because I was legitimately left angry and bitter over his direction and choices with Jon.

    There were other factors to the man dialogue can be slog to get through at times and his attempts at humor completely out synch with the rest of the story but I'd have at least lasted longer if the whole thing with Jon hadn't soured me on him so much.

    Dude, I can not thank you enough for showing me this. I got through more than half of it while I was at work today and it is one of the best things I've read in a while. Everyone is just...perfect. Jon, Damian, the YJ cast. Everyone. You can tell a real fan put their heart into writing this.

    Yep. Now you see why I recommend it so much. Plus, the author plans on making it part of a series going forward.

    I liked Kathy and wished we seen more of her once they moved to Metropolis but Ive no interest in Bendis bland, adult take on her. I'd much rather have Tomsai original plan of having the four form there own version of Young Justice.

    It's ultimately why I think this whole thing with the Legion will fail, while we've seen multiple young teams endear and be fondly remembered years after their books end with fans I've never seen anyone clamouring for the return or Conner or Kara days with Legion and with Clark it's just more so that it'll will be made an official part of history again.

    Though I suppose an aged up Kathy would be a more appropriate love interest than whatever they're implying between Jon and Saturn Girl, there just something uncomfortable about a character who was introduced as a child a few years ago now potentialy being paired with one who's been around since the 50's.
