Finally I got my own page here on TV Tropes! What took 'em so long? It doesn't matter now, let me introduce you. My name is Clark Kent but you no doubt all know me as Superboy-Prime, and I'm quite obviously the most capable superhero in existence!

I came from Earth-Prime, an Earth where all superheroes were just comic book characters. I had a normal life and even a girlfriend. Somewhere along the line, I found out one day I had developed powers exactly like Superman's. Still not sure how that happened. So, natch, I decided to to become a superhero. I was the real-life Superboy! But all of that went to hell thanks to the First Crisis that erased my Earth and entire universe from existence. Being the awesome guy that I am, I helped other superheroes, including my personal hero Superman to stop Anti-Monitor, to save the whole of creation. Pretty awesome of me, right? I was saved by Alexander Luthor Jr. from Earth-3 and we were dropped into a "paradise" Pocket Dimension, along with Superman and Lois Lane from Earth-2


But all of those years of solitude, missing my Earth, and seeing how the superheroes I admired messed up again and again, I started getting antsy and frustrated. Especially that emo imposter Conner Kent! That guy has it made! I woulda given anything to have what he has, that selfish, ineffectual asshole! Eventually, Alex and old man Supes finally agreed that we had to do something about it. So, when the Second Crisis started, we took the first chance we got and busted out of our prison dimension. Alex helped orchestrate scheme with Batman's Brother Eye, and stirred the pot with the already dysfunctional superhero community, and I got to work reclaiming my rightful place as Superboy and beat Connor's sorry ass to prove it, to finally get him out of the picture! Then the loser Teen Titans came along picking a fight! And I lost my damn patience! I'd had to watch the heroes I sacrificed my entire home for keep messing up, and now they were attacking me! What was I doing wrong!? Well, not gonna lie, I lost my cool, and I ended up killing at least a quarter of the team by accident, but as far as I'm concerned, they asked for it! As if things couldn't get bad enough, The Speedsters, including Barry Allen (who I thought was dead), yanked me into and imprisoned me in the Speed Force and left me to rot! Natch, I busted my way outta there! The Speed Force may be damn powerful, but I'm Superboy, which means there's nothing I can't do! I spent a good 8 years in there, but time works differently, so, Bart aged up into a 20 something and took up Allen's suit, where I forged this badass solar-absorbing armor that looked like the Anti-Monitor's, and joined Alex to watch him reconstruct the Multiverse, and finally get my home back. So, I set out to put the multiverse right, the way it was supposed to be. I was going to make everything perfect, no matter how many of these fakersI had to kill to do it!


I could tell you more about my life and how those stupid "superheroes" ruined it, but that's what Wikipedia and the DC Database are for. So, you better read up and stop bothering me! Oh, and some tropers made a section about me in Superman's Rogues Gallery! I'm not a villain, you self-righteous dickheads! I'm SUPERBOY!
