* BigEater: Less explicit than most examples, but in ''Superman #7'' he's shown eating a burger while slurping soda with his Dad holding an armful of snacks in tow. The snacks are nowhere to be seen a few panels later. He then helps himself to cotton candy and all-you-can-drink milk. Later on, he's seen enjoying several tubs of ice cream, at least two boxes of pizza, chocolate syrup, whipped cream, cherries, and numerous liter bottles of soda with his friend Kathy and his first dog Ranger. Then ''Action Comics #966'', Jon expresses a particular fondness for his Dad's deluxe "Blow Your Guts Out" Meatballs.

* GenerationXerox: Jon looks exactly as his father did at his age and is also a generally sweet and respectful boy who always tries to take the moral high ground. He even has a childhood friend who happens to be a SecretSecretKeeper much like his dad's relationship with Lana Lang. That said, he has his natural bursts of childish unruliness, and his moral code doesn't always stop him from [[TheGadfly intentionally getting on Damian's nerves in their petty arguments.]]

* SignatureAttack: Heat Vision, which he uses more than any of his other powers thus far.

* ClarkKenting: At the end of the first ''Superman'' storyline, Jonathan is given glasses like his father. Jon isn't happy that he has to wear them, but Clark tells him that they work surprisingly well.

Jon isn't happy that he has to wear them, but Clark tells him that they work surprisingly well. That said, he's possibly an even more egregious example than his father, as he makes no attempt to modify his voice and wears the exact same jeans and sneakers that he does in his daily life. Of course, he hasn't really been revealed to the world at large at the time of this writing.

* NaughtyIsGood: Zig-zagged. While he's sweet and polite and needs to be coaxed out of sticking to his bedtime, he's also a bit of a rebel who loves running off to do things he's not supposed to when no one is looking (such as watch a scary movie late at night) and starts a snowball fight right before school.

Having never made frozen pizza by himself before, he puts the pizza in ''with the box and plastic wrap still on''. The next issue of Action Comics has his Mom complaining about the mess he made.

* KeepingSecretsSucks: Jon hates the fact that he has to hide everything about him and wants to tell the world everything. Lois and Clark have to keep him tempered from this sort of idea. He also has to make up excuses during ''Superman #17'', during his little escapade with Kathy. He even does this to an extent with his ''parents'', as he makes it seem as though he was in bed all night due to staying up to watch a horror film and again when Damian took him out to Metropolis.

* PintSizedPowerhouse: His powers are slowly growing over the course of his appearances, punching dinosaurs in the face and easily tackling doors down. While he could initially get a concussion by falling off a tree, knives shatter against his skin as of ''Superman #17'', and he fell down a well none the worse for wear.
