And how they were ripped. First we have Lois in the plane, then she sees Superdude swooshing by and then he stabilizes it, and then he pushed that planet away from Earth just like he did with Kryptonite Island, and then he floats in space very similar to the scenes in SR.

Yeah, all the 'Superman'-scenes were basically Returns-light... very light.

One thing would have made up for this weak finale... Welling, in the costume, flying in orbit, winking at the camera.

When Clark was in the suit he didn't have that lock of hair/curl over his forehead. Fail.

Everything wrong with this finale is everything that's been wrong with the show itself for it's entire run.

Shitty writing, contrived and stupid situations, non-existent true character development, really crappy fights, with a few cool Superman-mythology moments scattered throughout, and a solid portrayal of Lois Lane.

That's basically the entire series in a nutshell, and the finale too.

Neither did Dean Cain when he was in the costume.

At least we actually saw Dean Cain in costume. And not just a super close up of his head.

Well, you could argue that we saw Welling as Superman when he had the actual S-symbol on his chest... or I'm just trying to get over my disappointment here

Oh, and Dean Cain actually had the hair curl; only he had it as Clark Kent.

I watched the last five minutes on YouTube - the scene in the Daily Planet is charming fun, the run-across-the-roof is completely lame.

A shot of Welling "winking" at the camera as "Superman" would have been nice...had they depicted Clark as anything else than a douche. I don't see this "Superman" winking or smiling at anybody, expect maybe Lois occasionally. Any version of Batman would beat the living tar out of super-douche.

Yeah, Smallville's "Superman" is an asshole. And if another superhero comes into town, watch how jealous and insecure he gets.

I'm still baffled as to why people continue to think the series finale would be different than any other episode on the show. This has been their modus operandi since the pilot, Brian and Kelly have kept the formulaic style that Miles and Gough instituted.
The early seasons' episodes would end with good fight sequences.

Aw...man. I wish Batman had been in the finale now, just to kick 'Clark's' Douchey ass. I can picture it now...

Clark: Well, batman or should I say Bruce Wayne! I think tha-

*Bruce punches clark in the face, kicks him in the groin repeatedly, dresses him in a pink ballerina outfit and kicks him off a rooftop like a football*

Bruce/Batman: No flights, no tights my ass...

*Batman proceeds to make out with Lois, who is dressed in Princess Leia's slave girl outfit"---Oh wait, my slash fic must have leaked into here.. Woops..

^ "Batman" was in the finale...he just took the guise of Green Arrow But yeah seriously...Green Arrow is what they would have done with Batman had they been allowed to use Bruce. Kind of makes me glad that they never used Bruce...because they would have turned him into a depressed wuss who would begin to question if "the mission" was the right path for him to follow.
