‘Superman & Lois’: Some Fans Think Jon Has Hidden Powers

Superman & Lois returned to the CW on May 18 after a hiatus, picking up where it left off with the Morgan Edge drama and the Kent boys.

Fans are loving the first six episodes of the TV show where Tyler Hoechlin‘s Superman does epic stunts, and the family dynamics add a dose of tenderness and relatability. With that in mind, some viewers think that Jordan isn’t alone with his budding superpowers.

Jordan struggles as ‘Superboy’

Ok, so Superboy isn’t his official title, but as the Man of Steel’s powered offspring, Jordan could technically morph into him somewhere in the TV series’ future. Maybe.

As seen in the most recent episode, Jordan can hardly contain his emotions and abilities, and he injured his own brother. Now, his brain is affected, and Superman had to rush him to the Fortress.

Ever since Clark and Lois moved the Kent family to Smallville, the boys had trouble finding their footing, but football and superpowers have given Jordan something to feel good about. He doesn’t want to be like his dad, but he’s also seeking his approval. However, Jordan’s growing power has created an unspoken rift between him and Jon and is a constant source of worry for Clark.

While the family has yet to find out why Tag Harris is so pressed about Jordan, he’s keeping it a secret from them and Sarah. It’s another shoe waiting to drop. To Jordan, it feels like another burden.

Some fans think Jon will inherit Superman’s powers too

It is still early in the Superman & Lois series, but there are some fans who believe Jon has dormant powers thanks to his dear old dad. After he blocked Jordan from hitting his frenemy, he paid in pain and cracked bones. Jon’s worried about whether he’ll ever have full range of motion again or be able to play football.

Though he’s upset, some viewers and comic book lovers are hoping he has accelerated healing abilities. So far, it doesn’t seem that way. But Jordan punched a dent into a log and that dent action didn’t happen when he hit Jon.

Imagine what could’ve happened if the punch landed on the Metropolis jerk. Could Jordan have killed him or at the very least, caved his face in?

Between Jon’s ability to take Jordan’s hit and his strength on the football field, fans are keeping an eye on him. And there’s that little nugget that Jordan somehow imbued Tag with powers. With X-Kryptonite now in play, who knows what will happen? In the comics, Clark and Lois had only one superpowered child, and his name is Jonathan.

‘Superman & Lois’ Season 1 has plenty of ground to cover

Bear in mind that the show is not even at the halfway mark, as it’s set to air a total of 15 episodes. Morgan Edge is somehow gathering manufactured powered beings under his thumb, making it evident that anything is possible.

While the Kent kids may get their abilities from their bloodline, that doesn’t mean Jordan won’t eventually be able to tap into his otherworldly skills through other means.

Superman & Lois airs on The CW on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. EST.
