    Sounds like the awaited reconnecting of Superman and Superboy will include pieces of the new timeline being explained. If WW #750 is going to start the process this seems like a likely place to continue the trend considering the plot.

    I wonder what chance there might be of the "evil genius" at S.T.A.R. Labs ending up being Paul Westfield? With the timeline having changed maybe they re-institute Conner's original origin?

    I'm very interested in how that will play out and what the story will be. I admit I'm fond of the earlier Superboy who was less connected
    (genetically and emotionally) to Clark and to the Kents and whom Superman showed up occasionally to to give pep talks but didn't really have an ongoing relationship with. But either way, I'm interested in the story. Haven't been reading because I don't care for Bendis' Superman (or editorial's grown-up Jon decision), so I don't even know what's what anymore and now they are back alive again, so what's Kon's deal with them, you know?

    That could be fun.

    I remember Conner confirming that he's half Superman and half Lex Luthor when introducing himself to Kingdom Come Superman in Young Justice.

    Ahh, well I'd say that puts the chances down a tad, but then again, I'd question the reliability of even recently referenced memories at this stage. We know these timeline changes are going to be pretty big and in many cases be drastically altering canon and the past in a way many characters aren't even recalling at the moment. Its not entirely off the table that Conner's remembering something that's no longer "real", and also a potential side effect of him being elsewhere when the timeline changes occurred. Likewise its possible they keep the genetic donors the same but still alter the ultimate origin in other ways. I'm curious as to what things will end up like regardless.

    Sad for me, since I like original origin. I think the Kryptonian-Luthor setup will stick because it's popular, even though I don't like it. But the hopeful part of me says DC cares so little consistency, it could still happen. But not really, since he's just being handled by the one writer, right?

    Yeah, it's only Bendis (and now co writer David Walker) writing Conner so far.

    But, there's a possible chance that Conner'll a mini like Jinny Hex is. Early on, Bendis said that he's hoping to roll out some minis for the individual members, and that other creators would be working on them. Then about a year ago he went on to twitter to personally thanked Magdalene Visaggio for giving him some really great notes on Conner Kent. And she's said more than once that Conner is one of her favorite characters. She's also already done work at DC like the Eternity Girl back ups in the Young Animal books, the proper Eternity Girl book, a Superman story in the 2018 Halloween special, and a Wonder Woman story in the 2018 New Talent Showcase.

    If anyone's getting a Conner Kent spin off mini or something, it's likely Visaggio.

    Ah, but did she like him before or after? I didn't read, so don't know, but a lot of people only like one version or the other, not both. Like, for me, he's Kon, not Conner. I like a particular version/era. Very common way for me to feel about comic characters, as at times it seems like they become almost wholly different characters depending on who is writing them. Even more so for Superboy, who didn't just get a change in attitude or looks, but in backstory, too.

    I mean, I can't possible know that, but if it's any indication of anything, when she was listing the books that she'd kill to write she listed him as "Superboy (Conner Kent)" rather than Kon-El or anything like that. That said, she also tweeted out a cover from his original book. Maybe she started as a fan of the original book and still remained into the character with the Johns retcon? Maybe she discovered him with the Johns retcon and fell in love with the original stuff? Can't say.

    But I figure since she's a writer who's passionate enough about the character, and her interpretation of the character seems to come with a level of insight that's impressed and influenced Bendis' view on him, she'd likely try an make any version of the character work.

    Well, I'm still down for all the books I've been reading. Super line just keeps on keeping on, and I gotta say that doesn't bother me.

    That Legion cover! I gotta say, when I saw it I had a horrible high school "You get you some bro!" moment.

    I hope nothing comes off that Legion cover. It may not, judging by its playfulness but regardless, it's still too soon for Jon to be romantically linked to anyone. I want to get to know this new Jon first, LONG before shipping him with anyone seriously.
