Now a lot of people may be confused by this announcement, but Superboy is coming to Smallville. Now you may be thinking, isn't this show (or at least wasn't it) about Superboy. Well... yes and no. Although back in the day Superboy was just a young Superman, since 1993 Superboy has been a completely different character - a clone made from some some sort of non-romantic mix of DNA from Superman and Lex Luthor. The modern Boy of Steel has taken the name Kon-El aka Connor Kent and he looks to don his trademark t-shirt and jeans on Smallville soon.
