Super Sons – When I Grow Up | Comics

On his way to school with his next-door neighbor Kathy Branden, Jon Kent took side of a bullied boy that led him into a quarrel with few bullies, who arranged a snowball fight to hurt his friends. As Jon was about to lose his cool, the timely intervention of Damian Wayne saved the day, who was previously disguised as their bus driver and a substitute teacher. That night, when Batman was going out on patrol, he ditched Damian behind for falling back on homework. On Hamilton County, Superman flies for a Justice League emergency and Lois sends Jon to his bed.

Just as he hit the sack, Damian sneaks back on him to take Jon along with him to investigate a case of break-ins at LexCorp, Metropolis. Both Robin and Superboy were making their way onto the top of the tower when they find Lex Luthor floating behind them in his new "Superman" armor. Since, Jon can't fly, Robin throws Superboy down for Lex to rescue while he makes it to an unmarked level but found Luthor back on his tail soon enough. These two make an escape but Robin manages to copy the security log.

Jon took a look at the video log and is able to detect a boy walking inside for the android Amazo and then camera goes dead. The boy is then seen in multiple places at the same time and Robin identifies him as Reggie Meyer using Batman's facial recognition database. There was an outbreak of the Amazo Virus which grant people power but all of them were cured then (Justice League – Injustice League). Reggie and his family were among the five percent who kept theirs and they formed the team "Super Duffies" to fight villains.

Tracking the last known location of Reggie's family, the Super Sons head to Providence, Rhode Island. Robin was going through some old newspaper articles when Superboy discovered the deceased bodies of Reggie's family and suggests that they call their dads. Disagreement on the point led Jon to push Damian away and run into Reggie's younger sister Sara in the woods. Damian thought Jon has come back but it was the Man of Steel standing behind him and The Dark Knight ready to creep on Jon in the jungle.

The hostile attitude of the World's Finest against the Super Sons has proved that they were actually some android doppelgangers sent by Reggie AKA Kid Amazo. Sara being a technopath helps them take down those robots and explains Reggie's plan of stealing the Amazo Armor from LexCorp, with which he is creating "Amazo" duplicates that can replicate any power they came in contact with. As Robin is still reluctant about calling their dads or the Justice League, he and Jon are quickly surrounded by dozens of duplicates of themselves.
