We're getting the Teen Titans in an upcoming arc, so we'll see Connor fairly soon. You're actually not that far behind. 64 just came out yesterday so you're only a few issues behind.
Read the conclusion of Hollow and Lex still has a shred of humanity in him still, and it's pretty clear that as AJK
stated to me, he has some feeling towards Otis. He's already acknowledged that he's the closest thing he has to an actual friend since returning, and he's right. Otis genuinely cares about Lex...probably like Clark, sees the little amount of good inside of him still that is dominated by the darkness.
Also I would say that Proc, you and AJK maybe right about Tess getting a new body or something soon.
