What happens when you give a teenager the powers of his idol, and let him loose on a world we're conditioned to not believe is real? Any psychologist can tell you this that the results are bad. It really isn't surprising the guy became such a psycho
can someone please tell me about superman prime. i have no knowledge of him and cant find anything about him that matches up with other sources. i know he's so powerful that his character lost a lot of its interestingness. please help.
Superman Prime is also known as Superboy Prime. He comes from an alternate Earth which mirrors ours, thus called Earth Prime. After Crisis on Infinite Earths, he gets locked in this pocket dimension, while there he and Alexander Luthor (Lex of Earth 3) come up with a plan to get out and find his world, the prefect world. After that fails (Infinite Crisis) he starts throwing the biggest tanturm the world has ever seen and gets defeated by the GLC. During Sinestro corp war he is released and after fighting he finds his way against the Monarch and is known as Superman-Prime. He is defeated and sent back to his Earth, during blackest night he makes a cameo and then comes back in the final issue of Teen Titans.
thank you very, very much. i have a few other questions because i believe my sources might have been incorrect. someone told me that regular superman can get superman primes powers by spending time directly in the sun for a little while. is this true ?
Yea its true, Superman becomes very powerful while under the yellow sun. There are cases like in "Our worlds's at world" crossover, Superman placed himself into the sun and with the power boost was able to defeat Imperilax. It was also seen in DC One Million in which Superman was in the sun for about a million years and comes out like a golden coated god. This works with Superboy-Prime, so if they both jumped in the sun and then fought it out, New Earth Superman would beat out Superboy-Prime only based on the idea that he has more skill in his power and control over his emotions (Superboy-Prime seems to let his agresstion get the best of him when he is losing a fight)
Kryptonite from New Earth doesnt effect him, but Kryptonite from his earth does. As seen in Legion of 3 Worlds, Element Lad transmuted rock into Kryptonite and it turns out that they are from the future of Earth Prime so that was able to hurt Superboy prime. He also has a fear of the dark and of the Flash family.
Superboy-Prime ain't so bad. If you ignore his Countdown stuff (well, really, one should ignore most of it, DC already has), he isn't too bad. I find him more of a tragic figure than the whiny little bitch that many seem to see him as (he does whine. A LOT. I'll acknowledge that.). While he was pushed down his path by Alex Luthor, he continued down it on his own accord. Going from fighting the Anti-Monitor to being the one of the most hated people in the DCU (in-universe and out)... Yeah.
I heard he's coming back for an issue or arc in Krull's Teen Titans. I hope he has a better feel for the character that Johns tried to build up than Paul Dini (Fucking Countdown, why doesn't he get flack for being head writer on THAT?!) did.
Yea he is coming back in a new issue of Teen Titans. In the solict he is wearing his anti-monitor suit and is seen fighting Superboy (Conner Kent/Kon-el), so maybe he has come back not just as a villian but maybe figured he can redeem himself since he tried to do that in Blackest Night.
