Lois & Clark

On Lois & Clark: The New Adventures of Superman, the "Fortress" was conspicuously absent, presumably because the series' aim was to explore the idea of Clark Kent being the true identity and Superman merely being the disguise (therefore, the character would have no use for an otherworldly fortress). In the earlier issues of the John Byrne revamp of Superman, the Fortress was also absent so the show was probably following suit.

You know I really liked that about Lois & Clark. Clark was a normal person, and a very competent journalist. Perfectly realistic since he grew up in Kansas and not on Krypton. It makes no sense that Superman was his true identity.

I don't care what was not shown onscreen, that fact is that it should be impossible (and most likely is impossible) for flesh and blood beings to live that way.
It's impossible for Superman to exist.

Flat-out impossible, no ifs, ands or buts.
Internal consistency/realism, anyone? Superman may be unrealistic, but still Kryptonians need food, water and air.

The Enterprise travels at FTL speed, we can hear sound in space and see laser beams, yet humans still can't breath in vacuum of space, need to eat, and fall down because of gravity.
