Tactile Telekinesis: At first, Superboy’s only superpower was “tactile telekinesis”, a telekinetic force field that surrounds his body as a protective shield and allows him to simulate Superman-level speed, strength, flight and invulnerability. The tactile TK field also lets Superboy break free of an opponent’s grip by pushing the field outward to force the opponent away. Other creative uses include rendering an opponent immobile by extending the TK field as long as they are both standing on the same ground. After the Flashpoint event Superboy`s Tactile TK seems far more powerful than before shown when he unconsciously brought down a prison. However, it is possible he doesn’t have full control over it yet,as it is shown to react and activate subconsciously.
Kryptonian Physiology: Under the effects of a “yellow” sun, Superboy possesses the same potential powers as an average Kryptonian.
Solar Energy Absorption: Under optimal conditions, this is the main source of Superboy’s super powers as they are contingent upon exposure to solar radiation from a yellow sun star system. His biological make up includes a number of organs which lack analogues in humans and whose functions are unknown. It is believed that between one or more of these and his bio-cellular matrix, “yellow” solar energy is stored for later use. This allows for the use of these powers to fade when yellow solar radiation is not available instead of immediate failure. Exposure to blue sunlight doubles Superboy’s strength and powers.
Heat Vision: Superboy can, as a conscious act, fire beams of intense heat at a target by looking at it. He can vary the heat and area affected. The heat vision can encompass anything within Superboy’s sight. His heat vision, however, drains Superboy’s energy more than any of his other powers. Superboy`s TK also allows him to rapidly vibrate the molecules in the air to the point that they combust.
Super-Hearing: Superboy’ hearing is sensitive enough to hear any sound at any volume or pitch. With skill and concentration, he can block out ambient sounds to focus on a specific source or frequency.
Enhanced Vision: Superboy’s vision processes the entire electromagnetic spectrum as well as allowing vast control over selective perception and focus.
Electromagnetic Spectrum Vision: Superboy can see well into most of the electromagnetic spectrum. He can see and identify radio and television signals as well as all other broadcast or transmitted frequencies. Using this ability, he can avoid detection by radar or satellite monitoring methods. This also allows him to see the aura generated by living thing.
Telescopic Vision: This is the ability to see something at a great distance, without violating the laws of physics. Though limited, the exact extent of the ability is undetermined. In function, it is similar to the zoom lens on a camera.
X-Ray Vision: This is the ability to see through any volume of matter except lead. Superboy’s can see things behind a solid, opaque object as if it were not there. He can focus this ability to “peel back” layers of an object, allowing hidden image or inner workings to be observed. The exact type of energy perceived - such as x-rays, cosmic rays, or some other energy invisible to normal humans - is unclear. this ability perceives an ambient energy source though, it does not involve the eye projecting a concentrated, possibly toxic, beam to be reflected back from objects.
Microscopic Vision: This is the ability to see extremely small objects and images down to the atomic level.
Infrared Vision: Superboy’s can see with better acuity in darkness, and to a degree in total darkness.
“Super Speed Vision”: When Superboy is in super speed mode, everything and everyone else around moves greatly slow.
Flight: Superboy is able to manipulate graviton particles to defy the forces of gravity and achieve flight. This ranges from hovering to moving in any posture, in any direction. His fastest recorded speed has been seen at Mach 3 and his greatest distance flown unaided has been approximately 12,000 miles. However, as with his strength, his speed was also developing naturally, Superboy is capable of roughly reaching speeds of Mach 5 (1 mile per second) but the limit of his speed currently is unknown.
Invulnerability: Due to the interaction of his dense molecular structure and supercharged bio-electric aura, Superboy is nigh-invulnerable to extreme energy forces. In addition, his extends this protection against toxins and diseases.
Superhuman Stamina: Superboy is able to maintain continuous strenuous physical action for an indefinite period of time. This based on his body converting yellow solar radiation directly to energy, but is limited by physiological and psychological needs to eat, drink, and sleep.
Superhuman Strength: Superboy’s strength is augmented by yellow solar radiation interacting with the greater than human density, resilience and biological efficiency of his musculature. He can lift objects hundreds of times his own weight (including small cars and tractors) and break through stone walls with ease. His strength is more an act of conscious will on energy fields than actual physical strength. It is this act of conscious will that enables him to perform physical feats that are beyond the mere application force, such as moving a mountain top without said rock crumbling under its own mass. His full strength is undetermined at this time. He, like Superman seems to be able to lift almost anything he can conceive of. To date, he has lifted the world’s largest yacht using his telekinetic strength (a feat of at least 500 tons); he has even been shown to throw a football at Mach 5. Objects lifted with his telekinetic strength do not crumble under their own weight or internal stresses. As his will power and concentration improve, so will his super strength increase. It has been stated he is able to lift a battleship which can weigh from 58,000 tons and up.
Superhuman Speed: Superboy is able to move at incredible speed by sheer force of will. This extends to his perceptions and allows for feats such as catching bullets in mid flight as well as covering vast distances in little or no time. His mind also works many times faster than humans’ are capable of.
Healing factor: Conner can heal from virtually any injury very quickly. His healing also repairs genetic damage and defects.
Longevity:Superboy can live for an extended amount of years, however he can’t live nearly as long as Superman.
Self-Sufficiency: Superboy does not need to eat and sleep as long as the average human as long as he’s under the effects of yellow sun radiation.
Superhuman Leaping: Superboy uses the super-strong muscles in his legs to jump incredible distances and heights far exceeding that of a normal human being.
Super-Breath: Superboy is able to create hurricane force winds by exhaling air from his lungs. He can also reverse the process to pull large volumes of air or vapor into his lungs.
Arctic Breath: Superboy can chill the air as it leaves his lungs to freeze targets
Enhanced lung capacity: Superboy has an enhanced lung-capacity, and through it, he can hold his breath for long periods of time and survive in space..
Hand-to-Hand Combatant: While normally relying on his sheer strength, Superboy has developed highly proficient combat skills. He is shown to be especially good at grappling and takedowns. He has some experience in boxing, kickboxing and some basic martial arts. Superboy believes strongly in non-lethal combat. As a result, he has adopted a fighting style that depends largely on knocking opponents unconscious using his super strength. He will frequently grab his opponents and throw them into a wall or object, rendering them unconscious. He also uses a head slap to achieve the same effect. Superboy for the most part, uses super speed (the momentum usually knocking the person out cold) in order to remain anonymous or to sneak up on his opponents.
Telekinetic Force-Field: By creating a field around his body, he is able to resist or reduce injury from non-energy based attacks by causing the object to be deflected from his personal force field. Bullets and shrapnel are easily deflected. This field does not repel gases or energy based attacks as well, though his skill in deflecting energy attacks is improving. After the events of Flashpoint, Superboy has to be aware in order for his force field and many of his other powers to be used. At his peak, he can create nigh-impenetrable psychokinetic force-fields.
Tactile Telekinetic Disassemble: By touching an object, Superboy may cause that object to literally fall to pieces. It can be assumed that he could conceivably put an object back together, if he understood how the object functioned in the first place. He can also manipulate aggregate solid masses such as volumes of sand or dust in the same way, causing the individual particles to fly apart in an explosive manner to create particle clouds or a forceful attack. Superboy’s hands glow blue when he does this. After the events of Flashpoint,he is able to maintain in the air the things that he has taken apart.
Telekinetic Field Manipulation: after receiving training from Knockout, Superboy learned to project his force fields outward at will allowing him to engulf and surround people and objects with a force barrier. He could use this for supportive and defensive purposes like moving inanimate objects and living people around or throwing and pushing objects away from himself. He could also hold objects in his fields for a limited time, the fields strength relied on his own will and focus so long as he centered his mind on his task the field would remain intact. After Flashpoint, his TK Field manipulation skills has increased substancially,letting him sense the world around him, and even seeing the world around him by extending his tactile telekinesis field outwards.
Telekinetic Force Blasts: Superboy also learned that he could project burst of raw psionic energy bolts from Knockout as well. He mostly projects the energy from his hands but it is assumed that he could project them from anywhere since his Tactile TK field permeates from his entire body. The blasts he emits have concussive force equivalent to 5,000 pounds of TNT, but it is speculated that as he grows older this force amount could grow and change along with him.
Multilingual: Superboy can understand and speak many languages outside of English. He is at least fluent in Spanish, Atlantean, French, Korean, Arabic, and Russian, among other languages.
Encyclopedic knowledge: Superboy has an encyclopedic knowledge of World History.
Total Recall: Superboy has the ability to instantly recall events that he pays specific attention to or that hold great emotional significance to him. When he has absorbed solar energy he has the ability to solve problems with superhuman speeds.
Motorcycle: Superboy has his own personal mode of transportation: a customized motorcycle.
Solar Containment Suit: The suit allows him to absorb Yellow Sun radiation to fuel his powers even underground. The suit also repairs itself on its own and holds together any wounds Superboy receives until his body repairs them on its own.
Visor: Superboy briefly had a visor, given to him by Emil Hamilton, that allowed him to simulate Superman’s vision powers.
Legion Flight Ring: This ring enables its wearer the ability to fly in both atmospheric environments and outer space.
Signal Watch: a specially designed wrist watch that is capable of emitting a high frequency ultra-sonic signal that only Kryptonians can hear.
Indestructible Shrinkable Shield:
White Lantern Ring (before being discharged):
White Lantern Power Battery (before being discharged):
Vulnerability to Kryptonite: Green Kryptonite, Red Kryptonite, Gold Kryptonite, Silver Kryptonite, Pink Kryptonite,
Vulnerability to Magic:
Red Sun Radiation: The damage from the Red Sun seems to be less effective on him than the full Kryptonians.
Yellow Sun Processing: Because Superboy absorbed less solar energy than Superman as an adult, Superboy is unable to process as much yellow sun energy as Superman can.
Lead: Superboy cannot see through lead with his vision powers.
High-pitched noises: Because of his super hearing, Clark’s ears are extra-sensitive to extreme noises
Cosmic organisms and weapons: Can give Superboy permanent wound and even kill him depending on the type of alien.
Hypnosis/Mind Control: Certain metahumans, the more powerful ones, can affect Superboy’s mind.
Certain cosmic influences like solar disruptions and deficiencies, such as a solar flare, can weaken this ability in Kryptonians.
Conner’s anger, jealously, and ego has often gotten him into trouble
