* UnskilledButStrong: Jon's powers are unstable, making him above average at best and a liability at worst. This is further exacerbated by his inexperience and naivety. Nevertheless, when they do kick in, he's powerful enough to burn his father with his heat vision and even outrace him. After his powers stabilize, he's working on becoming SkilledButStrong, mastering his abilities and gaining more experience to handle himself alone and with others.

* BroadStrokes: The version of Superboy we see in ''Convergence'' is largely based on the late-90s version where he lived at Cadmus. However, there are a few alterations. Namely, he possesses a smattering of Kryptonian powers that he never possessed during that era (namely, SuperSpeed, XRayVision and [[BreathWeapon Freeze Breath]]. The latter of which was notably the ''last'' Kryptonian power he awakened during the ''ComicBook/TeenTitans'' era (which itself came much later). The InfoDump at the end of the book also glosses over exactly whom Superboy is cloned from. While Paul Westfield is mentioned, it's simply stated that he mixed Kryptonian DNA was mixed with human, which is quite different than the original story.

* CharacterDevelopment: He becomes more confident and assertive as his powers grow and his adventures continue. In the first issues of ''ComicBook/SuperSons'', he's constantly complaining to Damian about how much trouble they're going to be in when they're caught and is somewhat lacking in confidence due to his PowerIncontinence. Come ''Issue #13'', he's happy to spook trained assassins for fun and watch their weapons shatter against his skin. [[ToxicFriendInfluence Damian's traits have also rubbed off on Jon]], making the Superboy more independent and willing to disobey his parents to do what he feels is right. For reference, ''[[ComicBook/SupermanLoisAndClark he sticks by his mom's word to the letter when his powers were first developing]]''. After surviving Apokolips, he ends up making a pillow dummy to throw off Perry White while secretly tailing his mom on her mission to save his maternal grandfather from execution in a foreign country.

** After transferring to a new private school in Metropolis, Jon gets teased for how poor his grades are. At the same time, he's analyzing alien teleportation algorithms with Damian in the Fortress of Solitude.



** Jon can also be rather petty in a way his father isn't when dealing with Damian, always making jabs at his friend's height when they argue. During ''Super Sons Annual #1'', the two get into a minor squabble while stopping a bank robbery. Jon subsequently eats both of the kabobs given to him by a grateful food vendor when one of them was meant for Damian, doing so with a satisfied expression and a clearly sarcastic "Oops, my bad."

He also cheekily pushes down on Damian's barbell while the latter was in the middle of bench pressing it.

Added DiffLines:

* CharacterDevelopment: Over the years, he grows from an immature, egotistical teen into a mature and responsible young man, particularly after he learned of having Lex Luthor's DNA.

-->'''Jon:''' Damian, I'm never going to get married, but when I do, it's going to be these noodles.

Added DiffLines:

** Their relationship cools off for the most part by the latter end of ''ComicBook/SuperSons'', with their fiery arguments settling into playful jabs like Jon pushing a finger down on a barbell Damian was using. They also regularly risk life-and-limb for each other and are each outraged when the other one is in danger.
