I have warmed up to Superboy over the years. I liked his introduction during the Death of Superman story line but I wasn't sure if I wanted this character to be existing side by side with Kal-El for too long as I think that too many variant characters tend to dilute the original. It wasn't until Geoff Johns' take on Connor Kent in his Teen Titans run that I began to appreciate the character again. I also liked his appearances on the sadly short-lived Young Justice TV series. I haven't kept up with the character in the New 52 Universe, though. I still miss the Superboy that was simply a young Clark Kent. It's too bad that they took that aspect of the character away, it made him unique among superheroes.
