Note: There’s more to redesigning than just slapping on a new unitard — Jordan Gibson knows that, and so does the people behind Man of Steel. In this redesign, Gibson takes on the Boy of Steel and updates his t-shirt and also his do. He’s no hipster, but that wild mane does show a Superboy with a little bit of rebellion — taking that spit curl way too far, but in a good way. – Chris Arrant
Jordan’s thinking behind the design:
I tried to give Superboy a modern version of his 90s haircut back as well as something that incorporated all the primary colors while retaining the plain clothes look he’d been rocking for a while. I also wanted to give him his own S. I felt like the 90s electric one was a good fit, because Conner is basically the only part of the 90s Superman mythos to stick around DC.
