EXCLUSIVE: Impulse Spills Superboy's Big Secret in Young Justice #6

WARNING: The following article contains minor spoilers for Young Justice #6, by Brian Michael Bendis, John Timms, Gabe Eltaeb and Wes Abbott, on sale Wednesday, June 5.

Readers learned early on that Kon-El, aka Superboy, found himself with a wife and daughter during his time away from Young Justice (and the grander DC continuity). Now, thanks to Impulse's, well, impulse control issues, the rest of the team knows as well.

In CBR's exclusive first look at Young Justice #6, the team gathers their wits in the jungles of Gemworld following a clash with Black Opal... and Bart Allen lets slip his friend's big secret: Superboy has a wife and child.

Kon-El doesn't seem too excited to have the rest of his friends filled in about how he's been spending his time in the alternate dimension, though he's not exactly upset either. Whether this becomes a point of contention between himself and Bart down the line, or if he would have simply preferred to break the new himself will likely be revealed when the issue arrives in stores later this week.

For now, check out the full preview for yourself, and the solicitation copy, below. Young Justice #6, by Brian Michael Bendis, John Timms, Gabe Eltaeb and Wes Abbott, with a variant cover by Ramon Villalobos, arrives Wednesday, June 5.
