Superboy – Jon Kent

Half Kryptonian and half human, the energetic son of Superman is bound for super-hero greatness like his father.

The young son of Superman and Lois Lane, Jon Kent’s Kryptonian powers promise to surpass even his father’s — if he can just learn to use them properly. To safely master his abilities and become a hero, Superman arranges for Jon to train with Damian Wayne, the newest Robin and Son of Batman. As a hero-in-training, Jon shows the sharp mind of his mother, the great heart of his father, and an unshakable commitment to truth and justice.

Superboy’s kit is interesting on paper, but rather lackluster in battle. His chance to hit twice and apply a stun are both nice upgrades.


With the right upgrades, Superboy could work on a stun team with characters like Killer Frost. His ability to purge and use True Sight also makes him work well with characters like Catwoman and Red Robin.

Countered By

Superboy outputs weak damage and has the gear set of a Special Support, meaning he’s unlikely to deal much damage and very easily killed. This makes him easy prey, especially for Mystic characters.

Superboy’s weak damage makes him a liability, coupled with the fact that he only gives himself True Sight. It’s nice that he can see through the enemy’s taunts and invisibility, but when he can’t hit above his weight, the True Sight is nearly useless because he can’t secure a kill. Red Robin in particular can provide better True Sight manipulation, turn meter up, and damage, making Superboy far outclassed.
