Superboy #4 (Why can't a tree be just a tree? Spoilers)

I’m still really enjoying this title, Lobdell is doing a really good job at getting inside the mindset of a clone, you get a very strong sense of Superboys’ confusion and lack of direction, his almost analytical approach is unique in comics. I really enjoyed the scenes of him floating around New York and basically ruining Christmas for everyone, like setting fire to the Rockefeller Plaza Christmas tree, it was fun, like, this is our hero? The confrontation with the Reservoir Dogs-esque villains was OK, but it was very basic, I like this book more when it’s not focussed on action, but on Superboy’s internal struggles. RB Silva’s art continues to be awesome, and we got some hints that the rest of Gen13 may be involved in this book, which is exciting. I do worry about next month though, I don’t read Teen Titans, will I be completely lost?
