Powers:
Tactile Telekinesis, which allows for flight, variations of super-strength, invulnerability to physical attacks, extending his protective aura to objects or people he touches, or dismantling or reshaping complex objects he can touch.

For a brief period, he wore a pair of goggles that allowed him heat vision, x-ray vision, and infra-vision. These were stolen and later smashed.

In another period where he had lost his powers, he utilized a Legion of Superheroes flight ring and a size-changing shield shaped like the "S" logo.

He later developed other Kryptonian abilities including heat vision, super-speed, super-hearing, and cold breath. When these started developing, he eschewed the more esoteric uses of his TTK to focus on emulating Superman's abilities more.

Bio:
A clone created by Project Cadmus around the time of Superman's 1990s death, his ostensible purpose was as a wholly beneficent replacement for the fallen superhero. As his story has developed, however, there appears to have been more sinister intent to his invention, as he shares DNA from both Superman and Lex Luthor. A partial clone of both men, he's fully neither. Consequently, he doesn't have the same range of powers as Superman, nor quite the genius of Luthor. Morally, he appears to rest more on the "good" side of the spectrum, but he does trend a little darker than Kal-El. His personality has some commonalities with the "rebellious" Power Girl, though it, at times, seems to be a bit more of a caricature.

The original source of his powers was a thing called "tactile telekinesis", which allowed him to mentally manipulate anything he could touch. As his character has evolved, however, he has begun to gradually possess more traditional Kryptonian powers as well. It has been stated that this is due to the Kryptonian abilities emerging through puberty.

Superboy would eventually carve out his own identity and join Young Justice and later the Teen Titans where he fell in love with the current Wonder Girl. During the events of the Infinite Crisis Suberboy Prime killed Connor who died in Wonder Girl’s arms. However during the events of the Final Crisis as Superman battled Superboy Prime in the future alongside the Legion of Superheroes, Brainic 5 revived Superboy who aided in the defeat of Superboy Prime and returned to the present day with Superman and Kid Flash (Bart Allen).
