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?
The thing is that Conner is more like Superman than he will ever be like Lex Luthor. Half of his genetic stock comes from Superman and the rest of his morals come from his friends and the Kents. Besides, Conner is a slacker. This is why he isn't a genius like Lex and the last thing he wants to do is emulate him. His conscious and his soul are more like Clark's than Lex.
