* RunningTheAsylum: Back when he was just a mere fan,[[http://img72.imageshack.us/img72/3055/geoffjohnslu2.png Geoff Johns was specifically told that Lex Luthor was NOT a DNA donor in Superboy's creation.]] Needless to say, Geoff ignored that when he started writing for the character....

* ScrewedByTheLawyers: As mentioned above, DC actually lost the trademark to Superboy for a few years to the Siegel family. This led to Connor getting KilledOffForReal during Infinite Crisis and Superboy Prime to undergo RapidAging to become Superman Prime for a brief period.

* ExecutiveMeddling: The reason behind Conner's death in ''ComicBook/InfiniteCrisis''. The higher-ups wanted a sidekick attached to one of [[Franchise/{{Superman}} The]] [[Franchise/{{Batman}} Big]] [[Franchise/WonderWoman Three]] to die, as ComicBook/{{Supergirl}} had in ''ComicBook/CrisisOnInfiniteEarths''. Originally, they picked ComicBook/{{Nightwing}}, but the writers were appalled at the idea of killing of Dick Grayson, one of the most beloved comic book characters of all time, and so the execs caved and settled for Superboy instead. Also, around the same time, DC lost a lawsuit to the Siegel family, and [[RealLifeWritesThePlot actually lost the rights to the Superboy name.]] [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Superboy#Legal_status DC has since gotten the rights back]].
