Conner Kent Returns to the DC Universe With Unfinished Business (Young Justice #11 Spoilers)

Once upon a time, before the New 52, Conner Kent, Kon-El, was Superboy, a genetic construct of Superman and Lex Luthor DNA. He found himself palling around with S.T.A.R. Labs, as one does. And uncovering a few things he was not meant to.

Young Justice

Which rather turned around Doctor Glory’s reaction to hi, and general demeanour in his presence.

Young Justice

At which point he was shunted over to another dimension, Gemworld, where he lived, grew, married and had a kid. But on this Earth, Dr Manhattan did his thing and the New 52 wiped him from history. However the more recent DC Rebirth has started to put a few of them back. And people have started remembering Conner Kent.

As different timelines began to rejoin…

And now Conner Kent returns to the DC Prime Metaverse, as so many others have done. And Red Robin Drake has yet to say sorry… as he has no idea what to apologise for.

Justice

But with unfinished business..


Justice

Reality shifted under his feet… of course, if Conner Kent doesn’t actually exist, if he was done away with would anyone notice, save for other timeline survivors like Bart?
