So yes this is quickly becoming one of my favorites of the New 52 line of books! I love the artwork, and I love that Lobdell has pretty much given Superboy a complete reboot from scratch. N.O.W.H.E.R.E. seems like they are going to be a great antagonist for the hero and have far reaching implications throughout the DCnU. This is was fun, learning more about Superboys powers along with him, but what made this issue and the book itself get more amazing was the reveal that "Red" is none other than Caitlain Fairchild from Gen-13!! Also it was revealed that Superboy's dna is a combination of at least 3 different species: Human, Kryptonian, and at least a 3rd alien if I was reading correctly. This book is just all kinds of awesome so far!

i think the fact that Red was Caitlin is one of the worst kept "mysteries" from the reboot.

Agreed. In fact, if I remember correctly, her identity was spoiled before the first issue even came out.

That being said, I am really enjoying this title. Don't get me wrong, I really hate that all of Conner's history and growth have been erased. Until DC brings the original DCU back as a separate line this will be a suitable alternative.

I stand by it. Lobdell has gone from being a great writer from the past to a horrible writer that is shitting on two of my favorites.

The best thing about this book is RB Silva’s art, it’s just brilliant. Those couple of panels where Superboy has those little dots for eyes like a Herge drawing were fantastic, and really set the book apart from the usual DC look. The story from Lobdell is good too, I really like how he’s methodically approaching Superboy’s powers and really having a go at explaining just what the heck Tactile Telekinesis is, because it never made sense to me before. The new villains he’s introduced are also pretty interesting. But yeah, the main draw here is the art. It was pretty obvious that ‘Red’ was Caitlin Fairchild, but it was good to see that confirmed, and to see her in her pants for the first time in the new continuity.

How do we know that Red being Caitlin is one of the worst kept "mysteries" from the reboot ? Most of the characters from the new universe have been identifiable form the start so far. Maybe this one was just more of a tease for the less observant folks :lol:

Call me when the rest of Gen13 shows up ... preferably in a book I'll actually keep reading. I keep waiting to be interested. I like Superboy, I like Fairchild, I like Rose Wilson. I do not like this book.

I'd rather they put Brian Wood or Warren Ellis on a DV8 book. That's the only decent thing to come out of Gen13....along with Lynch who later was reworked in Sleeper.

I'm enjoying the series quite a bit.
