Young Justice #3

Young Justice #3 focuses on the reunion of Impulse and Superboy while much of the issue fills in Superboy's backstory and informing his teammate, and readers, on how he arrived in Gemworld years ago (although there still is a question about how much time has passed in Gemworld since his arrival).

It turns out teenage emotional outbursts by a Kryptonian/Human clone can have quite a large impact as we see Superboy breaking into a S.T.A.R. Labs facility after not getting the answers he wanted. However, there's still plenty left to delve into about his time in Gemworld as the comic drops another bombshell by introducing readers to Superboy's wife and son.

While the rest of the team, who were imprisoned by Lord Opal after their failed uprising attempt, only gets cameos here, the focus remains on Superboy. His reaction to Lord Opal's soldiers seems to suggest he may not have his powers in Gemworld (but we'll have to wait and see if that is the case) while the soldiers' reaction to the emblem on his chest continues to showcase the distrust of Superman by those in Gemworld. Worth a look.
