Question: How old is this iteration of Superboy supposed to be approximate to human years. Early 20s?

So all the previous stuff, including the unfortunate fashion choices early on, happened in his teens and he's now officially an adult.

It's indeterminate as he's a clone. I think he's still a senior in high school.

I am excited about this book but I really wish that Rafael Albuquerque were doing the interiors, because his cover looks awesome! Loved him on Blue Beetle and I think he would be perfect for Superboy.

Well he was supposed to be about 15-16 when he was first awoken from the cloning chambers and because he was a clone he was not aging at all and everyone thought he was going to stay that same age forever while everyone else around him aged. Then when they did that story in Young Justice where all the kids became adults and all the adults became kids something happened because of the magic effect that caused him t start aging like a normal human teenager after he was returned to normal. So seeing how much the others have aged around him since that point it would make sense that he is about 17-18 years old now.

I have to go with at least 18 to allow D.C. to justify him having sex with Wonder Girl.

Call me when Johns-Boy is gone and the REAL Superboy that Kesel and Grummett created is back.
