We continue pretending like everyone in the DCU already knew for a long time Jon was into boys even though there wasn't even the slightest hint for 6 and a half years now. Turns out Damian Wayne also knew this. You have to be the most idiotic moron in the world to buy into this. Other than that, there really isn't much else to see here, very generic story with classic cringey Tom Taylor dialogue. more

Ageing Jon was a bad idea by a hack writer, that DC refused to undo due to ego

Merlyn - Jan 9, 2022

So it wasn't planned then but you ask me to buy that even though it wasn't planned back then, Damian already knew. Are you trying to make any sense or not?

His DNA is not original. Hes a combination of genes copied directly from Lex, and genes copied directly from Superman. Hes a copy. Match is a copy of him and there are many others. Like prints on a press run. None of them are original. It seems you are adamant about not admitting you're wrong on this so I see no point in continuing. I dont wanna go in circles here.

Merlyn - Nov 25, 2021

Dude, a copy means you've replicated something. Conner ISN'T a copy, he's a COMBINATION of Clark and Lex. Search the dictionary for what "copy" means. Match is a copy, yes, he's Conner's copy. Conner is no one's copy. Ergo, he is the first half-human, half-kryptonian, not Jon. I am not wrong so yeah, I'm not going to admit I'm wrong when I'm not. You know when I was wrong on Black Manta I admitted as much. Seems like you're not man enough to do the same. No surprise there, honestly.
