Summary: If one more person compares me to Superman ...

Kon-El

Owned by:

Gender: Male

Age: 16 weeks (16 years physiologically)

Group: Independents (Trained but have no Mentor)

Real Name

Conner

Nationality

Caucasian (Clone)

Physical Appearance

Superboy is a partial genetic clone of Superman and as such shares many of Superman's physical traits. Superboy is a Caucasian male with short black hair and blue eyes. He is noticeably taller than most people of his physiological age and is quite muscular, likely due to his Kryptonian genes. He is typically seen with a frown or pensive look on his face, rarely with a smile.

Personality and Interests

Although he desires to be a good hero, Superboy has anger issues. Having spent his first 16 weeks of existence as a science project and mind-controlled puppet, Superboy is defiant and does not like being told what to do or being dismissed.
Due to the fact he never really had the opportunity to interact with anyone until recently, Superboy is somewhat anti-social and has a hard time getting along with others or showing his emotions. As such he constantly behaves in a confrontational manner to all people, even those who are attempting to be kind towards him. Even simple things like making amends with people who he has wronged is a tough concept for him to understand.

Backstory

Kon-El is clone of Superman created by Cadmus and trained by Agents from NOWHERE. He received accelerated education and training in VR over the course of his 16 week growth and has physically lived his entire life in a containment pod asleep until his recent liberation.

Skills/ Powers

Kryptonian physiology

Super strength: This is one of Superboy's main abilities, allowing him to easily pick up or carry heavy objects.

Super leap: To compensate for his finiky ability to fly like Superman, Superboy uses the super-strong muscles in his legs to jump incredible distances and heights.

Super speed: Although not as fast as Kid Flash, Superboy can move at meta-human speeds especially when charging at enemies.

Invulnerability: Like Superman, Superboy is nearly indestructible. This invulnerability allows him to rush into dangerous scenes with little care for what might actually happen. Out of all his teammates, Superboy has taken the most punishment from their missions but has displayed no lasting injuries. He has been tackled through walls, shot with guns and explosives, had his feet dipped in lava, and has come out with no obvious physical damage. He has yet to be permanently injured, but he does experience pain.

Super hearing: Superboy can pick up the faintest of sounds over long distances, as well as high frequencies not audible to regular humans.

Infrared vision: This ability allows Superboy to visually detect heat signatures, allowing him to easily see in the dark.

Microscopic /Telescopic vision: Superboy with effort can see over great distances and at a microscopic level

Heat vision: This is one of his most unstable powers and attempting to use it sometime has less than desirable results.

Tactile telekinesis: An odd side effect from his genetic tinker and a much more expanded ability that shown by superman. It now operates like regular telekinesis, letting him levitate objects at a distance and also providing greater awareness of his environment, akin to a type of sonar. It also lends to a lesser degree than his natural Kryptonian abilities, super strength, speed, and invulnerability. There are also other applications that have yet to be fully explored. While this may SEEM like a redundant ability it had manifested in such force due to Superboy’s entire of exposure to sunlight. Thus puts into question how much and how long he can use his actual Kryptonian abilites vs his Tactile Telekinesis
