Man, Boy and Girl--Who has Which Powers?!?

Back in the good old pre-Crisis On Infinite Earths days, it was pretty easy to talk about what powers Superman, Superboy and Supergirl had. They were all from Krypton, and all had the exact same powers (and besides, Superboy was just Superman as a boy...what a concept!).

Thank you, Secret Files And Origins. Man, I miss those specials....
