One is one of the greatest super heroes in the world—a legend whose symbol inspires hope and that stands as the embodiment of truth and justice. The other is one of the world's greatest villains—an egomaniacal genius whose every action only serves to further his own goals, even at the expense of others. What side of the coin do you fall? Good or evil? Alien or human? Superman or Lex Luthor?
Maybe it's a little bit of both?
Cloned from Kryptonian and human DNA, and gifted with powerful tactile telekinesis, Superboy possesses abilities similar to that of the Man of Steel. Faster than a speeding bullet, more powerful than a locomotive, able to leap tall buildings in a single bound, Kon-El always strives to live up to the Superman name but constantly questions his ability to do so. Of course, having the shared DNA of Lex Luthor doesn't make it any easier on the young hero, who lives in constant fear of what sort of influence his human side might hide.
Part alien, part human, he exists as a boy of both worlds—embracing aspects of both Kryptonian heritage and humanity in a way that Superman never can.
