I know it is hard work but at one time all the classic characters were unknown quantities.

    I think Clark Kent would feel the same way, especially since his exploits as Superboy were probably documented in Smallville's news or whatever.
    Ah, I was talking more about a creative choice by the writers or producers in this case, not by an in-universe character using in-universe logic: "What can we call these characters to market them best?"

    I think fans of the show would be really mad, everybody around the world knows Clark Kent is the best and only Superboy. It would be bad for marketing, for sure.

    I'm not so sure as causal fans aren't so fickle as we comic book fans, we'll find out one way or another I wage.

    Actually,we don't what the real superboy would have been.siegel never got to publish his superboy.We have the company version.So, it's fake because it has no roots to the original version of superman.

    True, and do we have to really bring that debate into this thread? *sigh*

    Deeply, deeply love/hate that the Superman & Lois thread has devolved before the premiere of the show into a debate on the Superboy title amongst characters not as far as we know appearing on this show or who were not as far as we know Superboy in the world of this show. Literally could not be more on brand.

    So is your thesis that - right now, in 2021 - the 1980s Superboy show has more diehard fans around the globe than Young Justice
    You can follow me on Twitter or Tumblr, if more of my opinions sounds like something you'd like.

    Yes. Everyone in the whole world knows Clark Kent is Superboy.

    Clark Kent of Earth-Prime begs to differ. Honestly, he should come to Superman & Lois. Show 'em how a real Superboy handles business.

    I guess Jon would probably be Superboy Superboy. Jordan's the real question mark.
