Re: DCAU appreciation

^I think people get that impression because those lines didn't make his cheekbones look pronounced so much as they made his whole face look drawn, gaunt, almost sickly. That combined with the unintentionally desaturated pallet and the way they struggled to use him and his powers in early season one is why a lot of fans felt he was very much weak sauce. They got a handle on it by the end of the season though and with the stronger characterization and removal of said lines in 'Twilight', he was back to his old self.

I suppose one might suggest he was still recovering (physically and mentally) from the events of the STAS finale, but that's really a justification after the fact.
