What’s in a name? Superboy goes by several. He is known as Conner Kent, and by the Kryptonian name Kon-El. Superboy is a genetically-engineered life form referred to as a genomorph. He is a hybrid clone using the DNA of Superman and a human donor.
The Failed Experiment
Superboy was created as a living weapon to either replace Superman should he ever go away, or destroy Superman if he were to ever turn against mankind. While he possesses many of Superman’s powers, they were never on par with the power that Superman processed. This is because Superboy is part human.
When the group responsible for his creation tries to terminate the “failed experiment,” Superboy escapes. After a period of personal growth, Superboy proceeds to seek out other heroes and fight by their side.
“We hope that you will fight by my side when the dark day comes” – Raven
