I wish DC would change Conner's direction. He's not Superman and will never be anything like him. Conner should be an anti-hero of sorts, like Wolverine. I mean half his genetic make-up is from one of the most brilliant villian of all time. Conner should be a man who can take on his opponent with brute strength like Superman, use his brains like Batman or Lex and make the hard deadly decisions like wolverine. Hence, a more darker toned costume would suit him nicely. Conner wearing a black T-shirt with the kingdom Come "S" is not a bad idea. Also, what do you guys think about the Conner in the Superman Justice Lords custome?

I'm curious to know why you think that Conner could never be like Superman? Superman has gotten the "Blue Boy Scout" bad rap for decades, but I honestly believe that it would be harder to be that kind of hero than the anti-hero type. It's easier to give into base desires and mete out justice in one's own fashion than to take a higher road. Why would it be so wrong for Superboy to want to aspire to that level?
