Four more pages from SUPERBOY 1...

On the first day of class at his new school, Superboy is asked a question: If you're 300,000 light years from Mars, traveling at lightspeed, and want to reach New York city by breakfast, what time would you have to leave the red hallow (whatever that is)?

...which then segues into the page [personal profile] icon_uk posted, where Superboy completely ignores a woman crying for help, indicating that something's wrong with his ability to empathize.

I'm sure some people will complain that there's no such thing as a "cellular subconscious," but, well, there's no such thing as ESP or the metagene, either. The way I see it, this is just another made-up concept along those lines.

Elsewhere, there's a subplot about how one of the biophysicists working for N.O.W.H.E.R.E. (the organization behind all this), wants to turn whistleblower.

As a Libertarian I am enjoying NuDC's view of Big Government, but there is no organization that would call itself 'N.O.W.H.E.R.E.'! They'd come up with something benign like S.O.M.E.W.H.E.R.E. I'll miss Conner, but I liked Superboy's inner monologue, and he IS much smarter than the lab rats are giving him credit for, so it looks to be an enjoyable series. (Also liked the intro of his mission at the end. Helps to have the same writer on both!)

SOMEWHERE is a lousy name for a secret organization.

NOWHERE is good - because if they didn't have moles like Umber, nobody would see them - they'd be nowhere, so far as anyone knew.

EVERYWHERE would also be good - they're a secret society with fingers in countless pies - if you are in a situation to see them, they're everywhere.

SOMEWHERE... 'Where are they?' '*shrug* Somewhere.'

OH!I LIKE 'EVERYWHERE'! Benign and creepy at the same time! The ultimate Nanny State organization! "We're doing all this for you!"

Nah--they can screw up a LOT of things, but they do tend to make up some catchy titles.

to me, this is the danger of people who would overthrow governments and assume power for themselves. While they might keep the trappings of a previous gov't they wouldn't be.
