Super Sons – Parent Trap | Comics

Robin’s past finally revealed to Superboy in a meeting with Talia al Ghul, before Kid Amazo returns to tear the Super Sons apart.

When his dad Superman leaves for a Justice League-level emergency and reporter mom Lois Lane goes Metropolis to investigate on an article for Daily Planet, young superhero Jon Kent is left behind with Damian Wayne, who lands on the school ground of West-Reeve by their trusted family butler Alfred Pennyworth.

Unbeknownst to Damian, his mother Talia al Ghul was secretly keeping an eye on him from nearby and meets him during lunch period only to freak out his friend Superboy by holding her own son with a sword on his throat. She asks him to come with her but Robin declines her offer after freeing himself.

The Super Sons heads to Gotham City and encounters members from League of Assassins before finding out that Talia was hired to kill Lois. Jon and Damian then start scouring through the city to find their mothers to stop one from killing the other.

The shot fired by Talia from a rooftop was timely deflected by Jon while Robin confronts his mother about this contract she took and engages her. Jon would come across Lois on street after taking down a few of the ninjas and Damian would force his mother to leave town after besting her in combat.

Two researchers working at LexCorp walks into a room for checking on inventory before Lex Luthor arrives only to discover that the synthetic suit made of Amazo Virus is missing from containment and as the Super Sons were planning for their patrolling schedule for the night on Fortress of Attitude, Kid Amazo suddenly breaks in.

Sending Robin to look for rebreathers, Superboy tackles their former enemy until the villain is hit by an escape pod of theirs. Together, they made an attempt to reach out to surface for seeking help but Jon is grabbed by the leg at the last minute and pulled underwater.

Before Damian could ran out of air, Cyborg came out of nowhere at his rescue and band together looking for Kid Amazo instead of taking him back home. An unconscious Jon is dragged by the suit to an oil rig and discloses how it escaped using Reggie Meyer.

Since the boy was in a weakened condition when bonded, there are high chances of him being dead right now, because his powers were burned out and now it needs an external energy source to feed on. To absorb organic power from new source, he has acquired Batman, Flash, Superman and Wonder Woman.

After draining the entire League, the suit wanted Jon as a host who could survive and filter it to power the armor. Though resistant, he couldn't free his father and friends or even last too long before help could arrive but when it did, he immediately freed himself from captivity.

Since the suit has tapped into the power of Flash, it started to give even Cyborg a hard time. With no chance to seemingly win against the villain, Robin eventually came up with a plan which involves Victor Stone losing to Kid Amazo as a part of gamble he planned.

End of Innocence

The killer queen who used to run League of Assassins, Talia al Ghul pays a surprise visit to her son Damian with a contract to kill Lois Lane. However, the ongoing Leviathan civil war is what brought her here even though her intentions were never clarified at any point of the encounter (The Silencer – Code of Honor).

Then former Amazo Project came back to life next, looking for revenge by taking down the biggest players of world's greatest superhero team. Except for Aquaman and Green Lantern, almost every core-member of the Justice League showed up in the story, not to save the day but to be saved instead.

Super Sons – Planet of the Capes | Comics

Robin takes Superboy out for training but an emergency came up that even overwhelms the Teen Titans.

In Metropolis, Lois Lane was packing Jon some snacks before he goes out patrolling. She reminds him to be at home by time and asks Clark if they are doing the right thing, to which he points out that it is for the better to be open to Jon.

Superboy joins Robin on a rooftop as he is about to receive training on the duties of a hero. They look out for jaywalking, stop bag snatchers, rescuing cats and changing tires for people but where Damian was rude, Jon charms people with his well behavior and mannerism.

After finishing their rounds, Robin was trying to call his teammates on Teen Titans but Beast Boy came from behind as a cat, freaking Jon out before introducing Aqualad, Raven and Starfire to him. They came here seeking The Boy Wonder for an emergency and he ditched the Boy of Steel saying its Titans business.

They head to the Hell's Gate section of town while Jon gets back home a minute early. Lois heads to Daily Planet to cover a story and Superman was already out with Justice League, leaving him alone at home.

Following tracks of some weird energy signature, Raven comes near a wall and then suddenly, a hand reaches out and grabs her out. The team came under attack by two villains Atom-Master and Faceless Hunter, who make a quick work of them before the Titans could coordinate and then their third member, Time Commander reveals himself to the crowd.

On behalf of their team of Forgotten Villains, they wish to deliver a message from their master Kraklow and caused Damian to rapidly age. A sleeping Jon wakes up when an elderly Robin shows up at his doorstep with his beaten teammates looking for his assistance.

He says that he is not even a teen and Garfield points out that Damian is too old now, which is ironic. Robin approves Superboy joining their band and elsewhere, villainous magician Kraklow was waiting for them to bring help from elder heroes, like Justice League.

Apparently, he was visited by his elder-self, who handed him over a box full of mud from a dead Multiverse to create these artificial villains from his visions and make a name for him. So, he started walking a path of never being forgotten, at his Rebirth!

Superboy breaks in to their secret lair, it is flooded by Aqualad and the villains are slowed down. However, Time Commander gets a hold of things and freezes time to make a run for them but Jon was able to break out of it with his sheer will along with his team.

However, the Super Sons are then drafted into a war of another dimension which is threatened by Yggardis, the Living Planet. Also, they came across two young heroes, Big Shot and Hard Line, who unfolds new secrets about the magician Kraklow they fought earlier.

Superman – Black Dawn | Comics

A sinister entity has been keeping an eye on Superman and his family in Hamilton County. Then the Dynamic Duo came to see young Superboy.

The Kent family has been living in Hamilton County for some time as Superman slowly adjusts to this new world. With his wife Lois Lane and boy Jon Kent, Clark is living the simple life he used to lead on Smallville. Jon is getting along fine with Kathy Branden, granddaughter of their neighbor Cobb.

At night, Batman and Robin pay a secret visit to Kent Farm to talk to Clark about something important about his son as Superboy secretly watches but all are caught and brought inside the house for some apple pie by Lois.

When Clark asked, Bruce revealed that as a full healthy human-Kryptonian hybrid Jon have the capacity to surpass the great power of his father and by now, he should have had been at full power, whereas Jon can barely fly. So, he suspects something is holding the boy back and asks if they notice anything suspicions around.

When everyone went to sleep, he decides to Cobb's Dairy and sneaks into their farm to collect some fresh milk sample from the cow Bessie but suddenly, he is attacked by black liquid that captures him.

Superman – Black Dawn | Comics

The next morning, Cobb and Kathy arrives to deliver Bessie's fresh milk for Jon and Damian Wayne is introduced to them as Garth. As he departs, Cobb pats on Krypto's head and it appears that he has some psychic influence on the dog.

Later, Batman is nowhere to be found which even surprises Damian. Robin, Superboy and Superman go on a patrol over Hamilton County to locate Bruce but are interrupted by a giant squid creature they fought before in the arctic (Son of Superman).

With much less effort, the trio handled the situation but it was Jon's brash actions that saved lives in the end. Superman heads to Deadman's Swamp after sending the boys home. Damian and Jon were bickering while they were returning and as it started to become a fight, Kathy intervenes by chocking him up in the air with her telekinesis.

She even managed to redirect Jon's heat-vision. Meanwhile, Superman discovers Batman, Frankenstein, Robin, The Bride and many others stuck in some containment underground. Back home, Lois was getting worried upon having no words from her husband or son and go out investigate.

She is confronted by fellow townspeople Candice, Doc Brooks, Mayor Goodman, Mr. Martinez and Officer Haggart at her house and makes a break for it in the Batmobile using the Hellbat Gauntlet. She was eventually stopped by Cobb Branden and Superman quickly rushed to the spot hearing her cry. Cobb is soon taken care of and Clark flies off with Lois.

She points out that lately, Hamilton County has become a target for various monstrosities and as he tries to help the people, Lois is severely injured in this chaos. Elsewhere, Jon is being forced to watch his friends and family in peril and sheds tears for them but then his mysterious captor came out of shadows and revealed himself as Manchester Black, one of Superman's old enemies.

Introducing Superboy Black

Even though it was a plot set on solo Superman comic series, the primary focus revolves around Clark's son Jon Kent, the new Superboy. There is even a scene where Clark lectures Jon about the consequences of choices he made much like the way actor Kevin Costner's character Jonathan Kent does to a young Clark Kent in 2013's Man of Steel film.

In pre-Flashpoint reality, Manchester Black used to hang out with his super-team The Elite but this Prime Earth version is aided by the group of Super-Elite. The story will be going onward followed by "Hopes and Fears" storyline as the series advances.

Super Sons – When I Grow Up | Comics

Despite having very little in common among them, Robin and Superboy tries to stop Kid Amazo to take on entire Justice League!

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 disguised as their bus driver and a substitute teacher.

That night, when Batman was going out on patrol, he ditched an enthusiastic Damian behind for falling back on his homework. On Hamilton County, Superman flies off for a Justice League related emergency and Lois sends Jon to his bed afterwards.

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 which freaked out the latter for a moment. 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 really fly, Robin throws Superboy down for Lex to rescue while he makes it to an unmarked level to look into but found Luthor back on his tail soon enough. These two make an escape but Robin manages to copy the security log before that.

Super Sons – When I Grow Up | Comics

Jon took a look at the 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 decides to 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 many those robots and explains Reggie's plan of stealing the Amazo Armor from LexCorp next.

Using 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.

Super Sons – When I Grow Up

After having a few unofficial team-ups to fight crime under the cautious supervision of their over-protective fathers, Robin and Superboy finally have their very own monthly ongoing series titled Super Sons from DC Comics in 2017, which probably is one of the best gift we received from the DC Rebirth run so far.

The first storyline of their official team-up "When I Grow Up" collects issues #01-05 from the series. It is plotted by writer Peter Tomasi (Batman – Arkham Knight, Forever Evil – Arkham War) and he was assisted by artist Jorge Jiménez (Superman – The Final Days of Superman, Superman – Trials of the Super Sons) with his impressive drawing skills.

Super Sons Strike Out

The story focuses on a solo mission Damian Wayne begin on his own when his father left him behind from regular patrol duty but quickly realizing he needs someone to aid him on it and he then approached Jonathan Kent to pick him up as some extra-muscle from Hamilton County while both of their fathers was away.

Aside from Batman and Superman, Alfred Pennyworth and Lois Smith appearing in the story for their very important role of keeping the Super Sons in line. Following the core plot, there is a brawl in the Batcave between these two unsettling youngsters akin to the one seen in "Trials of the Super Sons", to set out their differences.

Superman – Trials of the Super Sons | Comics

With Superman's own kid is the new Superboy on the block, friends and enemies started to take notice.

After his recent fight with an entity known as Eradicator (Son of Superman) and then tackling the Kryptonian monstrosity Doomsday on Metropolis (Path of Doom), Superman agrees that he and his family has been through a lot upon arriving on Prime Earth.

So, he took his time off from being Man of Steel to take Lois and Jon to Hamilton County Fair, even though his wife is really skeptical about his break from heroism. Clark does his best to keep his promise of no caped-adventure to her but couldn't help without interfering on a robbery that was taking place during the fair.

Later, at his Fortress of Solitude on Arctic Circle, Clark was helping Jon with his school science project and accidentally they both gets teleported to Dinosaur Island along with Krypto! The cube Jon has been working on was the thing that brought them here and as the father-son duo try to get it, they are attacked by giant fish and pterodactyls.

Amidst the middle of prehistoric creatures and remains of World War II, Clark and Jon discovers Captain William Storm of the World War II military unit called "The Losers" alive, who helps his best to send the Kents back to their home.

Superman – Trials of the Super Son | Comics

Maya Ducard AKA Nobody was sent by Damian Wayne to pick up Jon Kent from school as he was curious about the new Superboy, much to his father's dismay. Superman came crushing into the Batcave to rescue Jon as Batman expresses his concern over Superboy's lack of control on his near-limitless power.

Jon was able to calm them down from almost taking out each other in a heat of the situation. Damian's constant tease at Jon would make him engage in a fight with him and that led the brats to Batman's boot-camp, an attempt to make them learn to work together as a team, overseen by the Man of Steel himself.

Next up, Lois Lane goes to pay a visit to Editor Candice of the local newspaper, the Hamilton Horn but then all of a sudden, these two are being attacked in her office and chased by Frankenstein; agent of S.H.A.D.E. Since he wasn't after Lois, she uses her Hellbat Glove on him to save Candice.

Then taking Frankenstein's hover bike, they quickly ran off from the scene but he managed to latch on. Superman eventually finds out that Frankenstein is after his wife Lois Lane while he was actually after her Editor.

These two have traded a few blows with each other upon encounter until Clark's shotgun-wielding farmer neighbor Cobb Branden shot Frankenstein and stall him for a while till Superman came to punch him out. Frankenstein explains that he is after Candice, who was actually a purple skinned alien fugitive Kroog.

This alien is currently wanted by S.H.A.D.E. for acts of mass-murder on several planets. Soon, the four-armed Bride of Frankenstein barges in looking for the same person for collecting a considerable amount of bounty on its head and then their family issue came up in the middle to start a fight.
