This isn't Superboy, this is Tempest from DV8 who happens to have a look and costume like Superboy =/

About the only thing he hasn't done yet is make someone's head explode and bang his sister. Did Superboy always have off-the-charts telekinesis like this?

he's always had tactile telekinesis. It made up for most of superman's powers. originally he didn't have all the same powers as superman. he's x-ray vision was done by goggles. when johns started writing him in Teen Titans he pretty much was a superman clone exactly didn't use the tk that much. the last superboy series he started to use it again.

It was weaker than the first issue. Sophomore blues, perhaps, but I'm in for at least one more before I put it on the chopping block.

A decent issue, I really like Lobdell’s voice for Superboy, it’s very detached and just different from the norm. I also like the supporting cast this book is developing, I always liked Ravage as a member of the Teen Titans and she’s a lot of fun here. It’s obvious now that ‘Red’ is Caitlin Fairchild from Gen13, and we’re getting some hints as to what her status quo is and that she still has superpowers. The threat of ‘Templar’ and ‘NOWHERE’ isn’t really grabbing me though. I didn’t read Teen Titans #1 so are there any connections I missed? Did that book give us any more details on who these guys are? The best thing about this book is definitely the artwork though, RB Silva is just a great artist and he improves this book a lot.
