Smallville Gets a Superboy

The internet has fairly well exploded over this news.  Michael Ausiello of TV Line has gotten the scoop that Superboy will be on Smallville.  If you saw Smallville last week you had to notice that Tess tried to kill Alexander (the Lex clone) with a syringe full of cyanide.  However the needle bent as it touched his skin.  If you’re familiar with the comics Conner Kent, aka Superboy, is a clone made of the DNA of Lex Luthor and Clark Kent.  It looks like this is the route Smallville is going.  Here’s the scoop from TV Line.

“As foreshadowed in the final seconds of Friday’s episode (as well as a certain AA Asterisk Quiz), Luthor clone Alexander (played by Lucas Gabreel) is actually… Conner frakkin’ Kent! Although I can’t say when exactly his secret identity will be revealed, I can confirm (via the exclusive photo above) that an upcoming episode contains a not-too-subtle nod to the character’s super-powered lineage.

“Conner’s journey is manipulated by a master,” showrunners Brian Peterson and Kelly Souders reveal exclusively to TVLine. “Luckily, someone knows more about Conner’s life than he does. But he should be wary of strangers bearing gifts.”

If you’ve paid attention the Smallville writers have been setting this up.  Alexander has been gradually losing his memories of Lex’s life.  Presumably he is going to lose them all and become Conner Kent.  The question is, will he become part of the Justice League too?  And if the quotes above aren’t enough to satisfy your need for proof that Alexander is going to become Superboy, check out this picture.

    I wasn’t on the computer much lately so I did not know this news. Thanks for the info. It’s shaping up to be a great last half of the season.
