It appears as though real world clones suffer from accelerated aging.  "Dolly," the first cloned sheep, recently died at age six of old age.  Sheep normally live to around 12.

So why would "Superboy" be stuck at one age with no aging at all???  It makes no sense.

Let's hope for SB's sake real world cloning problems don't end up in the comics.

I wouldn't worry too much.  I mean, we are talking about comic book time, after all.  Franklin Richards was born in the late 60s and the last time I looked he still was in kindergarten.  At that rate, Superboy should still be a teenager when I'm in a retirement home.

Well all right. That's a step in the right direction anyway. Cheesy

 I mean, when did it become passe to have a cape? Leather jackets, black t-shirts, for Superboy? C'mon now.  :wink:
