Superboy-Prime was the adopted son of Jerry and Naomi Kent who thought it would be amusing to name their new infant son "Clark". What the Kents didn't know was that the baby, found abandoned in a forest, was actually a young Kal-El, who (in that reality) had been teleported to Earth moments before the planet Krypton was swallowed by its sun.
Young Clark lived most of his life as a normal boy. One night in his mid-teens, while attending a costume party dressed as Superboy, his Kryptonian powers suddenly manifested (with the passing of Halley's Comet and the beginning effects of the Crisis on Infinite Earths); at approximately the same time the Earth-One Superman found his way into Earth-Prime's reality, and the two versions of Kal-El met.
Superboy-Prime then found himself thrust into the Anti-Monitor's Crisis on Infinite Earths after his universe was destroyed. Although anguished over the loss of everything he knew, he found peace knowing that he was fighting the good fight alongside other heroes. During the final battle against the Anti-Monitor he was ordered by Kal-L to leave and escape with Alexander Luthor, Jr. and the other heroes. Fearing that Kal-L would die in battle and knowing the new Earth wasn't his true home, Superboy-Prime joined Superman in the fight against the Anti-Monitor. At the end of the conflict and after destroying the Anti-Monitor, with no home to return to, Superboy-Prime joined Alexander Luthor, Jr. of Earth-Three and the Lois Lane and Superman of Earth-Two in a "paradise dimension".
In the paradise dimension Superboy-Prime started to seclude himself from the others. He used the crystals to watch events from his life on Earth-Prime. His favourite memory was his birthday party, which he watched over and over. Superboy-Prime started to become frustrated and angry all the time. He reached out to Superman, but Lois's health drew most of his attention. Luthor used this opportunity to persuade Superboy-Prime to help him return to reality. Luthor began manipulating the young man by showing him the deaths of all those he loved on Earth Prime. Luthor had complete control over this "heaven" and was purposely showing him only the bad of the new earth, none of the good. Superboy-Prime was hesitant until he overheard Superman say, "I wish this world would let him grow up. He'll never be Superman here". Alex also showed him his parents and his girlfriend Laurie in the new Earth dying in an accident. This caused his grip on reality and his morals to change.
Superboy-Prime attempted to punch through the barrier to reality but was unsuccessful. His failing efforts frustrated him. He was not as powerful in his post-Crisis dimension because there was no yellow sun. Eventually, Alex revealed that his own powers were returning and combined his restored anti-matter powers with Superboy-Prime's and they broke through. Together, they set into motion the events that culminated into Infinite Crisis.
