Why is superboy only a punching bag for a long time and seems to only hit opponents that cant fight back? Its very strange being how he is suppose to be a more powerful fighter.

Greg responds...

I'm not exactly sure what you're saying here.

Superboy, being the most powerful member of the Team, often takes on THE most powerful opponents. And, frankly, some of them flat-out outclass him. I don't think that makes him a punching bag. Though I do think he can take a punch that most of his Teammates cannot.

If what you're asking is, "Why didn't you make Superboy more powerful?" then I think I've basically answered that before. We did not want our heroes to be over-powered. I don't see what the fun is in that.
