Good overall summary, but given the mess that DC's continuity has been, it's not completely complete.  I seem to remember that the Pocket Universe Superboy was erased in Zero Hour, but then replaced with a duplicate Hypertime version.

Looking at that splash from Infinite Crisis (what is Krypto doing in there?) reminds me of this old panel:



Poor Kon just keeps getting clobbered by Superboys...

"The bottom line involves choices.  Neither gods nor humans have ever stood calmly in a minefield forever.  Good or evil, they are bound to choose.  And when they do, you will see the truth of all that motivates us.  As a thinking being, you have the obligation to choose.  If the fate of all mankind were in your hands, what would your decision be?  As a writer and an artist, I've drawn my answer."   - Jack Kirby

And let's not forget Superboy One Million, the one-millionth actual clone of Superboy, and his One Million Army Corps of clone brothers.

My favourite Iron Age Superboy concept.
