Hello, Mr. Weisman,

I have a question in regards to what kind of clone Superboy is.

In the comics, Superboy is Superman's clone mixed with Lex's DNA to stabilize him.

In "Smallville," Connor Kent is a Lex clone mixed with Clark's DNA to stop his accelerated mitosis.

In the show, all that is explained is that Superboy was cloned from Superman's DNA, and nothing else was revealed.

The question that comes to mind is whether the Superboy of the Young Justice continuity is a Human-Kryptonian Hybrid clone, or a 100% Kryptonian clone?

Will we find out how Superman's DNA was acquired to be used to create Superboy in the remaining episodes of this season, or will this be a story for later in future seasons?
