DC Comics Does it Again! Superboy to be Killed Off

DC Comics has done again. As announced over the DC panel in NYCC, writer Scott Lobdell is going to kill off the existing Conner Kent-esque Superboy to be replaced by a different Superman clone.

According to Lobdell, the current Superboy has been written as dying in a sacrifice play when him, Superman and Supergirl fight the nefarious H'el in an upcoming storyline (which is probably the 'return to Krypton' arc).


To add insult to injury (in my POV anyway), Lobdell was quoted saying that the Kon-El will be replaced by a new Superboy which first appeared at Superboy # 19. And get this, the new clone/Superboy is a now a hybrid of Superman and Lois Lane as opposed to the classic pairing of Lex Luthor and Superman.

Sigh. DC, DC, DC. If it ain't broke don't fix it.
