Go To



As of Adventure Comics #4 and #5, Superboy Prime has begun to realise how bad he's become, and also gone to hating the writers instead of the characters. Due to the reboot, he'll survive and realise that the writers were once again manipulating him(specifically with Black Lantern Laurie), and begin to empathize with the characters in the New52 about how they're being "manipulated." He will do this by trying to band together Superboy and his friends, and find a way to ultimately [[RageAgainstTheAuthor take down the writers]], or at the very least make it so that the characters are "free" from us, [[WellIntentionedExtremist through whatever means necessary.]] Due to becoming GenreSavvy, he'll likely disguise himself as another of Cadmus' projects/a second Superboy to [[NoFourthWall hide under the reader's noses.]] This would have the bonus effect of Superboy-Prime [[RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap becoming an endearing character]] while remaining a villian. Not to mention that, given how Superboy has had a history of being manipulated, it'll make Superboy Prime a more effective EvilCounterpart.

But Superboy-Prime (post-Crisis) is ThisLoserIsYou and sort of a TakeThat to the prototypical 'comic book nerd' and their opinions on comics.
