Chances are, if you know anything about Superman, you probably know a little something about Superboy, too. The naming convention is pretty easy to follow and Jon Kent, the current Superboy, has been a pretty prominent character in the DC Universe as of late.
There are so many iconic Superman supporting characters. Lois Lane always jumps to mind (and I’ll fight anyone who doesn’t agree that she is the most important female character to ever come out of DC…or any other comic book publisher, for that matter). What is interesting about a character of alien origin like Superman is that his supporting cast and crew expands beyond the other characters that inhabit Metropolis or the rest of the planet. And sometimes, they aren’t even human.
