    Default Possible Codenames for Conner...Possible new Look....

    Hello,

    I am glad that Conner is back, BUT I really HATE the new look and since 5G will happen I think he will need (or also get) a new Codename and a new Look...

    1.) For Codename I would like if he uses Black Zero (like his evil Counterpart) or Flamebird (its Kryptonian and since Dick of the Batfamily uses Nightwing he could use Flamebird).

    2.) Outfit: I really dont like the actual look of Conner..
    He is to skinny (I prefer the muscular Johns Look), I hate his beard and I am also not a fan of the actual costume..

    In Johns TT he was wearing the black Shirt with the red S and Robin also said that he chose Red/Black because they were his colors.
    I like the idea that Conner uses the black Shirt with red S as basis for a new Costume.

    I was always a fan of Dicks Costume and a fan of the Batman of the Future (Animated Series) Costume...
    They are kind of simple, but cool...

    So I would like if he uses a similar Costume to them: Black Costume like Nightwing, but with Red S and red applications...Leather Jacket and Pilot Glasses Sunglasses.

    I always wanted Tim and Kon to be the new Nightwing and Flamebird, but I first developed that desire during the Dickbats arc, so I guess that's out the window.

    How about "Superlad"? Or even just using "Kon-El" like "Mon-El" does?

    I don't like "Scion," "Supernova," or most of the other fanmade names I've seen floating around.

    I'll probably just use the "Supernova" name and look from Future's end story years ago.

    I agree. Let him just be Kon-El.

    It fits with his character and history. It also highlights his difference from Clark currently. Clark announced to the world that Superman was actually Clark Kent. Not Clark Happens to be superman. Through it all he sees himself as Clark.

    Superboy was made as superboy, vice Jon, Kara, and Clark. That was his only ID for years. When he was finally bestowed Kon-El, it was like no matter what, his future was his own. No matter his origin. I felt like when he was given Conner Kent, it did the opposite. It confined him.

    Now that his “ secret identity “ is moot due to his actions and Clark’s, and now that he no longer solely has to carry the burden of the next Superman, let him be known by the first name that he identified with.

    That’s a smart way to build on Adekis‘ Kon El suggestion. You guys do good work!

    Jon will be Superman soon. So the Superboy name for Kon can stay.

    I ABSOLUTELY HATE SUPER-LAD, Kon-El etc.

    I would rather call him Steel-Fire,Steel-God,Black Zero,Brutaal,Flamebird,Secundus....or using the german translation of Steel: STAHL....

    I'm playing around with the idea of Super-Guardian for my current ongoing fic. Seems like a logical nod to his combined history with both the Super Family and Guardian and Project Cadmus.

    I have always kind of though Sentinel would be a good name. It keeps the S too.

    It's a good codename, but I prefer it as an alternate codename for Alan Scott (and potentially Kyle Rayner ala Superman/Batman: Generations) to disambiguate him/them as a non-Corps member.

    YMMV tho.

    Default Conners comeback and is he "doomed"?

    Hello,

    I am glad that Conner is back, but I am not really happy with his Comeback.

    1.) I mean Jon will become new Superman, Clark is Superman and Kara will also get a major role.
    In Conners Case instead we only saw the ToT future, so is he doomed to become this?

    2.) The idea that he was lost on another universe was cool, but I didnt like that:
    a) he wasnt aged up
    b) that he was "only" a farmer and he landed in an universe with yellow sun.

    I mean I thought that it would have been so cool if he stranded in a Universe with blue sun for example and on the way travelling back he also became fueled with other energy sources and then land on Apokolips or so where he fights in an Arena or so...before finally coming back to earth surprisingly.

    A sudden comeback and being aged up, empowered by different energy sources and having had an adventurous trip would have been a cool idea and could have given the character a nice growing up..

    I'm not totally happy with the resolution, but there still time for improvement (I hope).
    Maybe he could eliminate the blue from his suit and keep a combuination of black, yellow and red and call himself Red Superman. And Tim would be back to be Red Robin, with both of them becoming the "World's Reddest".
