6. Blackest Night speculation/theory
More Blackest Night thinking.
Okay, here's the current status of Superboy in a nutshell.
In 'Infinite Crisis' he was killed by the evil parallel-universe Superboy-Prime.
Over the course of various 'JSA' issues (and revealed fully in the 'Legion Of Three Worlds' miniseries), the 31st century Starman exhumed Superboy's body in the present day and put it in a Kryptonian regenerator (the same sort of device which healed Superman during his death). A thousand years later, the regeneration cycle was successful and Superboy returned to life. Just in time to put a beatdown on Superboy-Prime. At the end of that series he returned to the 21st century.
Which means there's versions of the same character on DC's Earth now: the dead Superboy being resurrected, and the resurrected Superboy from the future.
Why do I have a feeling we might see a Black Lantern ring resurrecting (however briefly) the dead Superboy.......
