* KidANova: Girls whom he's dated or have been attracted to him include: Tana Moon, Roxy Leech, Knockout, Sparxx, [[TwinThreesomeFantasy all THREE of]] [[ComicBook/{{Legion of Super-Heroes}} Triad/Triplicate Girl]]'s [[MesACrowd split selves]], [[ComicBook/{{Batgirl 2000}} Cassandra Cain]], Dr. Sterling Roquette, WonderGirl, [[ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} Kara-Zor-El]] (Pre-Crisis), [[WesternAnimation/YoungJustice M'gann M'orzz]] (Miss Martian), Lori Luthor, and [[Characters/BatmanRoguesGallery Poison Ivy]].

* KissingCousins: This one is complicated. Back when they first met, Kon-El and {{Supergirl}} II/(Matrix) were not related, and Superboy used to hit on Matrix with impunity. He also later enjoyed mutual flirtation with the ''Pre-Crisis'' Kara Zor-El when she was torn from time and space. Most subtext between the two was dropped when it was realized that Superboy is Superman's "offspring", but in the ''ComicBook/BlackestNight'' crossover, a Black-Lantern-ring-possessed Superboy taunts WonderGirl (his girlfriend at the time) by saying that when he's alone, it's his ''"cousin"'' [[ADateWithRosiePalms he fantasizes about]].

** The fight between Superboy and WonderGirl in ''Comicbook/TeenTitans'' is even more blatant. All the two talk about is how cute they find each other while trying to smear their faces into the sidewalk.

After the early [[TheNineties 1990s]]' ''TheDeathOfSuperman'' storyline, a new version of Superboy came into existence--this one an artificially created teenage clone. The character first appeared in ''The Adventures of Superman'' #500 (June, 1993), created by Karl Kesel and Tom Grummett. Exactly who he is a clone of was {{retcon}}ned, but he is currently a combination of Superman and Lex Luthor. This version eventually was befriended by Superman, who gave him an honorary Kryptonian name, "Kon-El." Kon also met and stayed briefly with Ma and Pa Kent (who no longer were dead in Superman's adult years post-Crisis), where he gained an identity of "Conner Kent".

* ComicBookTime: One story during ''ReignOfTheSupermen'' specifically references UsefulNotes/BillClinton as POTUS. Furthermore, in the time since he was created, babies born within the same month have grown up and become ''legal''.

Useful Notes/ pages are not tropes
* ThePresidents: He met UsefulNotes/FranklinDRoosevelt ''and'' UsefulNotes/JohnFKennedy... [[ComicBookTime both while they were in office]]. ** [[ScrewDestiny He tried to save]] UsefulNotes/AbrahamLincoln twice with some TimeTravel. He succeeded the second time... [[spoiler: shame it was an AlternateUniverse.]]

** With his restoration to PostCrisis continuity (though with Superboy now operating mainly in the Legion's era), Superboy/teenage Clark Kent's time-era is now TheNineties (skipping TheEighties).

The most recent change in Superboy's status quo came in the aftermath of the CrisisCrossover ''Comicbook/{{Flashpoint}}'', as part of the line-wide reboot known as either "The {{New 52}}" or "[[FanNickname The DCnU]]". Right now, "Superboy" is a biological experiment of the conspiracy known as N.O.W.H.E.R.E, made from Superman's DNA and that of several others, both human and alien. [[spoiler:Or so we were told. He is eventually revealed to be a clone of Superman and Lois Lane's child, Jon, from the same future the leader of N.O.W.H.E.R.E. comes from.]] He is currently being used by them as a living weapon, under the supervision of both "Red", a.k.a. [[ComicBook/{{Gen13}} Dr. Caitlin Fairchild]] (the last survivor of the team of scientists working on him) and Rose Wilson, a young mercenary hired to make sure that he stays under control. This Superboy has Kon-El's tactile telekinesis, but virtually none of the empathy of his earlier incarnation; he just wants to escape N.O.W.H.E.R.E., and he's not picky about what he has to do until he can.

* CloningBlues: The {{New52}} version of ''Comicbook/{{Superboy}}''. Even more so than his pre-Flashpoint incarnation. Supergirl and H'el treat him like a monster at first because of a clone rebellion in Krypton's past. The name "Kon-El" is Kryptonian for "abomination of the house of El". [[spoiler:The only reason he even exists is because Harvest wanted a guinea pig he could experiment on to find a cure for his "son's" (Jonathan Kent, the future son of Superman and Lois Lane) genetic problems. Having apparently done so, Harvest now wants Superboy dead.]]
