Superboy #19 Gatefold Cover May Reveal Surprising Origin

Posted on April 9, 2013 at 7:07 am by Tyler Waterman

Before the New 52 reboot, Superboy’s origin was that he was created from the DNA of Superman and Lex Luthor, creating a half-human-half-Kryptonian hybrid. After Flashpoint restarted everything, DC made it clear that Superboy was still the combination of human and Superman’s DNA, but the human half wasn’t revealed… perhaps until now. As part of DC’s “WTF Certified” month, every comic has a surprise reveal on the second half of a gatefold cover, and Superboy #19‘s cover may be the most revealing yet.

If this cover is to be believed, Superboy’s human DNA side may come from none other than Lois Lane herself. Considering their isn’t a romantic relationship between Lois and Clark since the New 52 reboot, this could present all sorts of fascinating dilemmas, especially considering the relationship between Superman and Wonder Woman.

Is Superboy technically the son of Lois and Superman? We’ll have to wait until tomorrow when Superboy #19 hits shelves!
