"Forget the Past"

Writer: Aaron Kuder
Penciller: Jorge Jimenez Moreno
Inker: Jorge Jimenez Moreno
Cover: Karl Kerschl & Michael Atiyeh

Reviewed by: Adam Dechanel

    Aaron Kuder has certainly made an explosive start using the awful Teen Titans run as a catalyst to begin a new arc or soft reboot for Jon Kent and his new life in the present.

    The parallels with Superior Spider-man are still here - a ghost haunting his mind, a gradual departure from his evil mission to replace Superboy to change history however it is very cleverly done utilizing several facets of Superboy's already muddled New 52 history.

    The book reaps immediate benefits with the soft reboot, first and foremost through the introduction of the A.I.D team who are instantly likable.

April 13, 2014: Man in Superman Shirt Saves Baby from Burning BuildingPrint

Tori Phillips Superman fan Tori Phillips became a real life superhero, when he helped save a baby from a burning building in Dallas this weekend.

    Amid all the destruction and the dozens of displaced residents NBC 5 managed to find some good news at the scene. While going around and helping bang on doors to get people up and out, Regina Whitaker witnessed some fellow residents doing more to try to save lives.

    "They were taking their hands and breaking the glass and they pulled that fence to help get a disabled man out," said Whitaker. "We were just trying to get as many people out as we can from here and in the back. There were people with a baby. They had to drop a baby down."

    Tori Phillips, who happens to love Superman and was wearing a Superman hoodie, caught the baby.

    "I'd seen they needed help and they were scared to come down with their baby and I was like I'm right here, I'll catch Ďem so that's what I did and then another dude helped get his wife down and then he jumped down and got them to safety," said Phillips.

    Phillips is among those who lost his apartment unit but the good Samaritan says he'll move on from that. The baby he found momentarily in his arms this morning is a way bigger deal to him than the things he lost.

    Action, adventure, romance... everything that makes a geek-girl's heart beat a little faster. And how awesome is it that Superman is asking advice from his... ahem... superfriends. (Yes, I said it. It's corny. So, sue me.) I especially loved the conversation between Supes and Batman as Superman is holding up the train tracks ala "Superman: The Movie." It's like they are two pals having a normal conversation during a work day.

April 9, 2014: Aaron Kuder Talks About the Future of SuperboyPrint

Superboy #30 ComicBookResources.com caught up with new "Superboy" writer/artist Aaron Kuder to find out what his plans are for Jon Lane Kent. Here's an excerpt from the interview...

    Now the implications Jon has for the DC Universe in general are rather large: he's from an alternate future, he initially wants to rid the world of metahumans and was working with Harvest. Are these things going to spillover into the New 52 at large? Will events in your book impact events in the other Super books or books with the younger heroes involved?

    I can't speak to how much impact it will have down the road. I think this will change the way people think of the new Superboy, at least of Jon in that context going on. I think Jon has had a very troubled childhood!

    To say the least!

    [Laughs] He's got a bad rap, and moving forward I'm of the mindset that everybody deserves a second chance. In many ways this story is Jon's second chance.

    Being raised by Harvest seems like it would leave most of us with a somewhat messed up state of mind. [Laughter] You said you see Harvest as the true villain, so does that mean he'll be involved in this story?

    Not heavily; the way that Jon and Kon-El were created, you can't talk about where they come from and their origins without dealing with Harvest on some level. I feel like a lot of the stories with Superboy up until this point have been overshadowed by that stuff and they haven't really focused on who he is as a person or getting down to, after his brainwashing, what does he think?

    Like I said, this is a very specific story. When this particular story wraps up I really can't speak of what will happen down the road. There's definitely an element, in the story, that it is really self-contained, but it could potentially impact a lot of other things.
