"Someday I'm going to jump and just keep on going!" - Clark Kent of Earth Prime

Quote taken from DC Comics Presents #87 (November 1985)




  Before the crisis there was a world much like our own with little super-hero presence. This Superboy was only the second hero of this world, encountering other heroes during the Crisis on Infinite Earths, during which his own world was destroyed and he retreated to a 'paradise' dimension alongside the Superman and Lois Lane of Earth 2 and Alex Luthor of Earth 3.

  However, this dimension began to deteriorate, and Alex Luthor began to manipulate Superboy Prime to his own ends, eventually discovering a way out into the sole world left behind after the Crisis. Here, Alex and Superboy began re-arranging things to their own liking, with Superboy's main job being to move planets in order to shift the centre of the universe to mach more closely with previous worlds. Aiding Alex in his plan to restore former worlds, Superboy Prime gradually went mad, and was unable to accept responsibility for his actions, not even when a battle with the regular Superboy led to the deaths (at his own hands) of former Titans members Pantha, Wildebeest and Bushido. Impulse and Flash forced him into the Speed Force, and were able to keep him busy for years, but the nature of time travel meant that he sprang free, battling Superboy once more and killing several members of the Green Lantern Corps before facing, and killing, the Earth Two Superman. However, he was subdued during this battle and is currently under guard on Oa in what may be the most secure prison ever designed. He is, of course, determined to break free...


  Little is known about the life of the Superboy of Earth-Prime . . . whose impact on the DC Universe is confined to the event known as the Crisis on Infinite Earths.

  Superboy of Earth-Prime was only the second superhero known to have appeared on his particular parallel Earth (the other being Ultraa). On this Earth, Clark Kent assumed he was just an ordinary boy, and super-heroes were a thing of fantasy only. He had read Superman and Superboy comics from a young age, and his fondest wish was to get super-powers like his idols with the same name from his comic books. Mysteriously, on his 16th birthday he gained the full set of Kryptonian super-powers! This Clark Kent evidently was Kryptonian as well, but had never known it! Since super-heroes are truly a rarity on his world, this Superboy was never affiliated with a Legion of Super-Heroes.

  The Earth-Prime Superboy became known to the other heroes of the Multiverse during the Crisis, as he was the sole survivor of his Earth, which was claimed by the Anti-Monitor's antimatter wave. After first encountering the Earth-1 Superman and sharing his first known adventure with him, Superboy of Earth-Prime joined the coalition of heroes gathered by the Monitor's assistant Harbinger to do final battle with the Anti-Monitor in the antimatter dimension of Qward. With Alexander Luthor of Earth-3 and the Superman of Earth-2, Superboy of Earth-Prime was instrumental in the final defeat of the Anti-Monitor.

  Left without a world to call his own following the Crisis, the Earth-Prime Superboy joined the Superman and Lois Kent of Earth-2 and Alexander Luthor of Earth-3 in the Paradise dimension.


Powers and Weapons

  The Earth-Prime Superboy has super-strength, the power of flight, super-speed, super-breath, super-hearing, super-vision (including X-ray, heat, microscopic and telescopic visions), and invulnerability to any other force than magic and Kryptonite. This Superboy is also assumed to have the power to travel through time under his own force.
