I just thought of one good thing about the reboot, Tim can be gay now and Kon bi so they can so be a couple now. Well one of Superboys couple you know the writes are going to pair him like hell. They've already doing the ConnerxCassie paring.
Ah, shipping. Never mind that Superboy of the reboot is nothing like Kon-El of the previous comics. Never mind that he has full telekinesis and some kind of weird mental-extrusion-sense as opposed to Superman's powers and Tactile Telekinesis. Never mind that the Kon-El was an idiotic if essentially kind young man, whereas this Superboy is a highly intelligent sociopath who can only guess that maybe his lack of empathy is not acceptable by society. These changes mean nothing to the great phenomenon of shipping!
That said, great pic. Love the detail and the red glow of Superboy's suit.
Tim hasn't changed, but Superboy (instead of having Superman's powers) now has full telekinesis (tactile nothing, and believe me when I say that full telekinesis IS incredibly powerful and kinda disturbing. Watch the movie "Akira" if you don't believe me) and some odd sort of super-sense (can detect the presence AND nature of a man who is on the roof of a secure building that Superboy is deep within). What's more, this version is no longer slightly dim but kind. THIS Superboy is a sociopath (in the clinical definition: he neither understands nor possesses empathy) and is quite smart.
In other words, Superboy is not the same character at all. His origins and powers are SLIGHTLY similar, but the core personality is too different to count as the same kid.
