Jonathan Kent, Superboy, is Now 17 Years Old…

As seen in a preview of Superman #7, published tomorrow, Jonathan Kent has returned to Earth from his trip away with his revived-by-Manhattan-transfer grandfather Jor-El. But what has been three weeks for them (a lot of fuss about Lois going missing for less than three weeks…) has been around seven years for Jonathan.

He is now seventeen. Give or take. Almost a man…

‘Boy’? Has Lois Lane been spending her time binge-watching and rewatching Bird Box on Netflix? Very, very possibly…

And when is Jonathan going to meet Conner? Same writer after all.
