Synopsis:
Though not technically the first appearance of Superboy-who-would-be-Connor-Kent, it's the first time he's really featured in a story. This serves as a part of the 1993 post-Death-of-Superman storyline in which several characters with pseudo-Kryptonian powers are advanced as possible replacements to The Man of Steel.
