* KryptoniteFactor: Like Superman he is as vulnerable to Kryptonite and magic.



* ThePowerOfTheSun: Like Superman, derives his Kryptonian powers from the absorption of solar energy from the Earth's yellow sun.



* SuperpowerLottery: During ''Teen Titans'', Superboy developed Kryptonian powers including heat vision, x-ray vision and super-hearing. He also developed Kryptonian invulnerability and super strength as shown when he battled the hugely powerful Superboy-Prime.



* HiredGuns: Rose Wilson

* GeniusBruiser: Superboy has shown to possess superior intellect to what humans could ever have. His mind works with incredible speeds, and combined with his TTK-powers, it might be one of his greatest assets.

{{Telekinesis}}: In this version, it takes him quite a while to realise seems that he actually has this.
** {{Telekinesis}}
** {{Flight}}
his tactile telekinesis is far more powerful than in previous incarnations. It now operates like regular telekinesis letting him levitate objects at a distance and also providing greater awareness of his environment akin to a type of sonar. He also uses this to simulate some Kyptonyan powers.



* SuperStrength: Kon-El displayed strength enough to bench press a couple tons. His upper limit has fluctuated over time however.
* SuperpowerLottery: Subverted. It seems that this Superboy has not yet obtained all of his Kryptonian powers and his only abilities are his tactile telekinesis and a degree of superhuman strength as well as a superhuman healing factor (something Harvest pointed out after Superboy's fight with Grunge) and is even able to bend light around him to turn invisible.
* {{Telepathy}}: Superboy can at least see and erase memories. Though it takes him quite a while to realise that he actually has this.



* TookALevelInKindness: though it takes him a while, he becomes much, much nicer as time goes by and much more heroic.

* AudienceSurrogate: Due to being conceived during the events of ComicBook/{{Convergence}}, he serves as one for readers who aren't quite caught up with the events of ComicBook/SupermanLoisAndClark as well as the events of the Post-Crisis timeline.

* AudienceSurrogate: Due to being conceived during the events of ComicBook/{{Convergence}}, he serves as one for readers who aren't quite caught up with the events of ComicBook/SupermanLoisAndClark as well as the events of the Post-Crisis timeline. He also lampshades the UnderwearOfPower his father's old suit had.
-->'''Jon:''' ''[holding up a phone with pictures of his dad's old suits]'' Hey Dad! Why don't you wear one of these? You shoulda stuck with the black suit or gone back to the old one with the undies on the outside.
-->'''Clark:''' It wasn't "underwear", Jon. It was part of the suit, a decorative element, all sewn together as one piece.
-->'''Jon:''' Looks like undies to me.

** The ''Black Dawn'' story arc is shaping up to be one for his dad, as one of Jon's neighbors was seriously injured after Superman [[ThouShaltNotKill refused to kill a giant squid monster]] that was attacking Hamilton even as the local police officer encouraged the two of them to use their heat vision.

* BroughtDownToNormal: In ''Superman #20'', Batman reveals that something is stifling the growth of Jon's powers and may make him powerless in the long run if it isn't stopped.

* 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.

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. According to Batman, once Jon reaches his full potential, he'll be stronger than his dad ever will be on top of potentially manifesting some unique powers of his own.


Added DiffLines:

* SuperpowerLottery: Is developing his Dad's Kryptonian powerset and is stated to have the potential to become even more powerful than his father. That's not even taking the fact that Jon might manifest unique powers of his own.

* LamarckWasRight: Jon is inheriting all of his father's powers one by one, but it's taking an awful lot of time for it to happen, which has Batman suspicious. [[spoiler:Mr. Cobb's milk seems to have something to do with it.]]

Added DiffLines:

* PowerLimiter: Batman notes that Jon's powers should have grown exponentially by the events of ''Superman #20'' due to hybrid vigor, with powers matching or exceeding his father's at this point. Thus, he suspects, that something in Jon's vicinity is keeping his powers from reaching their full potential. [[spoiler:It looks like it's the milk from the Kents' neighbor, Mr. Cobbs, Kathy's grandfather.]]

After succeeding in his escape, a stint with the Teen Titans, being attacked by H'el, a jaunt or two through time and fighting his original, Jon Lane-Kent the future son of Lois and Clark, then teaming up with Jon after the latter pulled a HeelFaceTurn to fight a version of Jon that had yet to perform the HeelFaceTurn in a pocket universe that the two of them accidentally created, he's become considerably more heroic.
