Today sees the final episode of Titans Season 1 air on the DC Universe app, which includes a post-credit scene featuring none other than Superboy and Krypto, who will be a part of Season 2.
Watch the cool scene taking place in Metropolis at Cadmus Laboratories above!
In the comics, Superboy is Kon-El, aka Conner Kent, who is a clone created from the DNA of Superman and Lex Luthor. The New 52 version of Superboy sees the character as a clone created from Superman, Lois Lane, and their son Jon Lane Kent from an alternate New 52 timeline. It remains to be seen which version of Kon-El the DC Universe Titans series will be going with, but it seems to be the former.
Titans Showrunner/executive producer Greg Walker offered EW.com the following on Superboy:
Was it always the plan to end the season with that end-credit scene introducing Conner Kent, a.k.a. Superboy, and Krypto?
It wasn’t totally planned from day one — or maybe it was in [Geoff Johns and Akiva Goldsman’s] heads, but they didn’t tell me. It definitely wasn’t something that we thought of until the very end. I think we knew that would be a direction that would be exciting for the fans and a tease that would be interesting for us as well, and that was the best spot to put it in.
Titans has given us slightly altered takes on all of these characters so far. What can we expect from the show’s interpretation of Conner Kent in season 2?
It’s still brewing. What I can say is that we still want to take the same dimensionalized and psychologically grounded approach that we do with the other characters and apply that same pressure to Conner Kent and see what shakes out when you put a character like that through that test. You know, questions of identity, questions of powers, questions of your place in the universe. These are all questions that are interesting for any kind of Superman character, and are really interesting for Conner.
The good news is that Titans Season 2 is already greenlit so we'll see Superboy and Connor Kent soon enough.
