'Titans' Season 2's introduction of Superboy and other Superman characters could build up to Man of Steel himself appearing
Superboy's introduction is clear evidence Superman exists in the 'Titans' universe and it seems quite a few characters associated with the Kryptonian superhero are going to be part of the show this season including Lionel Luthor and Martha Kent
Joshua Orpin's Superboy/Conner Kent will finally be landing on DC Universe's 'Titans' in the show's upcoming sixth episode. The young metahuman, a clone with the combined DNA of Clark Kent/Superman and the Man of Steel's greatest enemy Lex Luthor, is easily the most powerful new character joining the series and his appearance could prove to be a gamechanger for the Titans in their ongoing battle with Deathstroke/Slade Wilson (Esai Morales).
One of the best things about 'Titans' since its very inception has been how the show incorporates elements from the wider world of DC Comics. Superboy's introduction is clear evidence Superman exists in the 'Titans' universe and it seems quite a few of the characters associated with the Kryptonian superhero are going to be part of the show.
The official synopsis of the upcoming episode, titled 'Conner', reveals Lex Luthor's father, Lionel Luthor, who had a great impact on how his genius son grew into the supervillain we all love to hate, will be a part of episode 6. Prior to the start of the season, another character closely associated with Lex, his personal bodyguard Mercy Graves, was also confirmed as part of the second season, played by Natalie Gumede ('Coronation Street').
Clark Kent's mother Martha Kent is another important Superman character who will be a part of the show. Sarah Deakins has been credited for a guest appearance on the episode playing the iconic character.
With all the different references to the Man of Steel piling up on the show, it looks like it might just be a matter of time before 'Titans' reveals its own Superman and we can't wait to see what the series does with the character.
Here's the official synopsis for 'Titans' Season 2 Episode 6 'Conner': "Conner Kent escapes from Cadmus Labs and emerges into the world for the first time as a free agent. With Krypto in tow, Conner's search for the truth about his past leads him to Lionel Luthor (guest star Peter MacNeill), Lex Luthor's father, and Cadmus geneticist Eve Watson (guest star Genevieve Angelson). Eve informs Conner of his true heritage and sends him on a path of self-discovery, examining his own identity and inherent impulses. In a moment of question, Conner chooses to act heroically and finds himself face-to-face with the Titans."
The next episode of 'Titans' Season 2 will arrive on DC Universe October 11.
