DURING CONVERGENCE, A DEPOWERED SUPERMAN FATHERS JON KENT

In Convergence (2015) #1, a depowered Man of Steel has impregnated Lois Lane. During the event, Brainiac gained access to the Vanishing Point. With the knowledge, he restored cities from erased and alternate planets on a planet called Telos. Beyond the Bleed, he located Telos at the edge of the multiverse. Though, the planet was abandoned by Brainiac. To this end, its programming was for the cities’ champions to fight to the death. Only one city can survive. During the crisis, Superman was depowered by a dome that appeared on New Earth. But, on the day the dome receded, Superman recovered his super powers.

In Convergence (2015) #2, Superman and Thomas Wayne help deliver the baby. In Gotham City, the champions from Flash’s timeline have attacked Superman. During the battle, Cyborg attacks the Man of Steel. Only for Superman to incinerate his arm with heat vision. Then, he heads to his apartment in Gotham but Lois is not there. In fact, Subject One, an alternate Superman, has taken her to the Batcave. Quickly, Superman arrives and makes short work of Subject One. Then, together Superman and Thomas Wayne help deliver Lois’ baby. Because Superman considers himself human, he names the boy Jonathan Samuel Kent.

AFTER A BRUSH WITH DEATH, KNOCKOUT MOVES IN WITH SUPERBOY

In ‘Superboy’ (1995) #22, Knockout comes to Hawaii and decides to move in with Superboy. Firstly, Superboy returns from his trip to the 31st century. As a result, the Legion of Superheroes have gifted Superboy with a Legion Flight Ring. Because of his success, Superboy is elated.

As Superboy celebrates, Knockout attacks him on the beach of The Compound, in Hawaii. Quickly, she is on top of him. Then, Superboy responds and knocks her into the waters. Thrilled, Knockout comes out laughing. After her brush with death during the Suicide Squad mission, Knockout finally decides to move in with Superboy. Evidently, Superboy is surprised.

AFTER A PLANE ACCIDENT, KILLER FROST COMES TO HAWAII

In the next few pages, we turn our attention to Killer Frost. After a plane accident in the Hawaiian airspace, Frost emerges from the wreckage. During the “Underworld Unleashed” event, the supervillain’s heat absorption powers have been amped by the demon Neron. Elsewhere, at the Compound, the Boy of Steel notices that it is snowing. Subsequently, after giving Roxanne his Legion Flight Ring to watch after, Superboy flies away with Knockout in order to investigate.

Normally, temperatures do not reach below 60 degress in Hawaii as reporter Tana Moon states in her reporting. However, Frost has brought a blizzard to Honolulu, converting the city into “a cold, crystalline palace.”1 Later, during the battle between Killer Frost and Superboy and Knockout, we find out that the supervillain is headed for the volcano Kilauea Caldera.

In conclusion, the powerhouse kisses the Boy of Steel. Moreover, Knockout tells him the thrill of the fight makes her come alive and she promises to teach Superboy. Later, Tana Moon reports that Killer Frost’s body is nowhere to be found.

SUPERMAN, MEET H’EL!

Supergirl meets Clark at his apartment as Lois is visiting. When Lois departs, the two fly to Metropolis Centennial Park. Superman is surprised at Supergirl’s ability to speak English. She tells Superman she has made a friend who can help them restore Krypton. Immediately, H’el flies in. He introduces himself and tells Superman he was part of the space mission that would ultimately send Kal-El to Earth. However, he arrived 27 years after Kal-El.

Superman does not believe H’el and tries to convince Supergirl otherwise. At that moment, H’el teleports Superboy. Superman is shocked at H’el’s speed and at his violence. H’el tells Superman that he is going to kill Superboy, since being a clone he is considered an aberration whose species destroyed Krypton ages ago. A fight follows where H’el’s super powers outmatch Superman. Having defeated Superboy, H’el departs promising to restore Krypton with Kara’s help.

H’EL PLANS TO DESTROY THE SOLAR SYSTEM BY A REVERSE BIG BANG TO PREVENT KRYPTON’S DESTRUCTION

After an attack by H’el, a powerful Kryptonian, Superman visits Lex Luthor in a military prison designed to specifically hold him. General Garrison initially refuses to let Superman meet Lex Luthor, but Superman convinces him. Lex Luthor is held in a containment cube defended by antimatter cannons. H’el has taken control of Superman’s Fortress of Solitude and only the most intelligent mind on Earth can help him. Luthor has a scarred face which was caused by Superman. He reveals to Superman that he is aware of H’el and Superboy.

Superman asks if it is possible to go back in time in order to prevent the destruction of Krypton. Lex Luthor reveals Superman’s mind is second to his. He asks to speak with Superboy which results in an exchange about Superboy’s genetic structure. Luthor reveals it is possible by creating a reverse Big Bang that will destroy the solar system. Luthor tells Superman that the Man of Steel already guessed it, though he meant to ask whether it would have to kill H’el in order to prevent it. Superman and Superboy depart with the Man of Steel contacting the Justice League.

AS THE JUSTICE LEAGUE ATTACKS, WONDER WOMAN BESTS SUPERGIRL IN COMBAT

At the location of the Fortress of Solitude, H’el prepares his Star Chamber in order to time travel to the destruction of Krypton. Wonder Woman prepares to fight Supergirl. Though Wonder Woman admires Supergirl’s bravery, she has no sympathy for her misguided grief. In the mean time, Superman fights H’el. He scolds H’el for manipulating Supergirl’s grief to his nefarious ends. At that moment, H’el punches Superman into space.

Meanwhile, Wonder Woman has managed to tie Supergirl in her Lasso of Truth. She comments that though they are a close match in strength and speed, experience is the difference-maker. This is significant since in Post-Crisis continuity, Supergirl has been stated to be stronger than Superman. Though, however, Superman is ranked as stronger than Wonder Woman by Checkmate. Post-Flashpoint, Wonder Woman and Supergirl are matched physically.

ORIGIN STORY


Superboy was created by Project Cadmus. He was intended as replacement for Superman after he had died fighting Doomsday. Superboy was a clone of Superman and Lex Luthor.

Superboy was artificially aged to his teenage years and freed by the Newsboy Legion before complete control could be gained of him. He revealed himself to the world while stopping Sidearm from stealing money from an ATM machine.1

SUPERBOY BECOMES CONNER


Some time later, Superboy resumed work for Cadmus after becoming amnesiac. During that time, Superboy, Robin and Impulse set up Young Justice and became best friends.

Later, Superman invited Superboy to the Fortress of Solitude. He showed Superboy recordings of Krypton which pleased him. Superman told Superboy he considered him family and gave him the Kryptonian name Kon-El. Superboy accepted then changed the name to Conner as a civilian identity.2
