When DC Comics “rebooted” their world via the New 52, there were a lot of sacrifices character wise. One of which was the original Wally West (who heralded the rise of DC Rebirth), another was Connor Kent, aka Superboy. He was a key member of the DCU before Flashpoint reset everything, and for years he’s been off the map. Excluding his prominent appearance in DC’s Young Justice Cartoon/Comic that is.
Well, at NYCC, Detective Comics writer James Tyvion IV revealed that the current arc, “A Lonely Place Of Living” will “probably” reveal the fate of Connor Kent. Or, at the very least, it could signal his return in some fashion.
It’s not surprising that DC would bring Connor back, as they have been listening to fans in many ways in regards to the characters that got shafted in some aspects in the New 52. How he will return though is still very unclear.
