I loved this bit.
Kon-el/Connor Kent was introduced in the 90s, so he had no chance of getting a normal costume. His original look can be used as to define the era. Leather jacket, check. One earring, check. Tiny, round sunglasses, check. Once the world came to its senses, DC decided that Superboy could not be trusted with a costume and had him fight crime in a t-shirt and jeans.
It was an unusually well-written article of the sort, I thinks.
