A long time ago, Superboy and Superman were the same Super-person at different stages of their life. But in the young hero’s current incarnation, he’s his own person — a creature bred in a laboratory, half-human and half-Kryptonian. In next week’s Superboy #3, the kid gets trapped in his own private remake of The Core, falling precipitously into the molten lava beneath the surface of the Earth. The issue also kicks off with a mysterious couple robbing a convenience store in the most elaborately homicidal method possible.
You can read the full issue when it hits stores Nov. 9. For now, check out EW’s full sneak peek here.
