Superboy vs Superman
11/28/2009 07:28 PM EST
Just curious to who all likes either one better then the other.You don't have to go into detail on why you like one over the other but you are more then welcome to if you like.I honestly like Superboy,probably as a lot to do with me growing up watching the show and I still enjoy the show today even though its kinda cheesy now when I watch it.But one thing I like to point out to those who may not know this is that,the actor who played shang in the first MK movie plays in a episode of Superboy back in 1988.So I think its funny and ironic cause of MKvsDC and just shows you that that crossover was bound to happen.I watched the episode today and was just hoping he had a finish him line in there somewhere but it was not to be.Anyways feel free to discuss and I welcome anyones replies and opinions about this topic.

Superboy as in Superboy Prime? If so, hard to decide, Superman and Superboy are both badasses, Evil or Good. Superman I guess, or Superboy or Superboy Prime

Wow Superman is badass? In what world?

Superman sucks ass, Superboy (as in, the Superman clone, not young Clark) is one badass mother fucker. He took that ridiculous Superman costume design and made it cool. Super + Leather jacket = awesome.

BTW, something about Superboy always bothered me!
If his power is "tactile telekinesis" meaning he has to touch stuff to make it move.... wouldnt that effectively remove the whole "tele-" part of his powers and make it kinetic powers???
seriously... think about it... its a gyp!

Superboy Prime is an abomination.

I kill you!
I kill you to death!


Essentially a pussy ass whiner about how Earth (?) was better, and was stupid enough and morally corrupt enough to sink to the level of murdering other incarnations of heroes simply because they were not the same ones as his world.


Psychotic manchild who got whupped. Pathetic. And I am not the only one:

Superboy-Prime is basically meant to be a parody of comic book fans who constantly complain about how nothing is the way THEY want it to be.

They could have use both Superboy Prime and Superman on MK vs DCU. Make them fight.

Superboy-Prime is the best. Let's see:

-RAPED two Supermans, killed one
-Had to be pushed through a red sun to be stopped
-PWNED the Anti-Monitor
-PWNED Monarch
-Punched himself
-enslaved his parents
-is well aware that he too is a comic character
-Reads his own comics

Yeah, fuck you haters

Oh god...

Someone is championing the tragic nineties Superboy design?!
It is an MK forum, but come on guys... An undercut, bulky jacket, sunglasses, and bad ass 'tude make a great character?! You must be joking!

Superboy-Prime is the great character because... he runs around being invincible and apparently did something that could be perceived as rape?! This must be a hilarious ironic commentary about the predelictions of the MK community. There's no way this is a serious thread!

Apparently Chrome is the descending voice of sanity.
I don't know that Prime is necessarily worthy of the ire he gets from the comics reading community, but there's got to be a healthy dose of perspective when it comes to the character. He's a none-too-subtle parody of whinging nostalgia nuts and other brands of online bonehead. He's not the epitomy of any kind of character but those that are post-modern jokes.


Get away from fashion sense (or lack thereof), and any debate about which is the superior character is pretty redundant. They're all Superman; be they the genetically spliced offspring of Superman and Lex Luthor, or a cranky underage Kal-El from a parallel universe. They all represent a facet of that character that is as large and versatile and classic as Batman.

Not dividing his time between being a mopey power fantasy for Gen Y pubescents and/or looking after his sickly old aunt is not the mark of a bad character. Nor is trying to good for the sake of good.
Those who see Superman as no more than the cape and powers drawn on the page probably aren't spending any valuable time with the character. A character as capable of crossing demographics, genres, and characterizations as Batman is, albeit with his own inherent advantages. Interpretations that include each Superboy that springs off of a particular idea or juxtaposition of the original Superman/Superboy.
