I know Cadmus grew him with that haircut, but I wonder if he ever looks back on his younger days and thinks, "Why the fuck did I ever keep that stupid haircut?" He did apparently like it at the time, for some reason. After he lost his memory and got stuck on a Kamandi-ish island for three months, the first thing he did after he got his memory back (and still stuck on the island) was get a fade.
And I just realized that all of my Kon icons are of the post-original pre-Titans costume and haircut. You know, the awesome one.
