Re: Does this superhero team exist?

There was also the finale of one of the recent TMNT cartoons where that version, the classic 90s version and the original comic version teamed up. There may have been other versions included but it's been a while since I've seen it.

Re: Does this superhero team exist?

Yeah, the fact that Smallville Clark grew up in a town full of Kryptonite is a source of concern. That'd be like a human growing up in a town littered with uranium deposits. There's bound to be Kryptonite dust in the air, in the water supply... he's probably gonna develop super-leukemia some years down the road. In fact, maybe that was part of why he had so much trouble flying.

Of course, the real reason is that the creators never expected the show to run more than 5-6 years, so when it kept getting renewed they kept having to delay his maturation and keep him in a rut far longer than intended; and in those last few seasons they were too faithful to their original intention of keeping the "no flights, no tights" rule until the bitter end. Once the show reached season 8, they should've realized it was time for a serious rethink of that policy. Although I think I read that Tom Welling himself refused to wear the costume under any circumstances.

Re: Does this superhero team exist?

Tom Welling was wearing a costume as a The Blur, certainly making much better use of the super jumps, with a more natural evolution into flying, in the later seasons would have been better (and not just in the first or last episode of the season) he was floating in the pilot after all.

super-leukemia is an interesting idea, and if you take the multi-verse view, a variety of Supermen is interesting, and yes across a mutliverse, one of them could well be a total failure in controlling his powers, and not embracing the Superman persona.

Although not exactly superheroes, Michael Moorcock's Eternal Champions (Elric, Corum, Dorian Hawkmoon, et al) sometimes came together as a team. They were all the same hero, exisiting in different versions across the multiverse.

What about a Supergirl/Power Girl team up, such as http://comicboxcommentary.blogspot.c...supergirl.html?

But not the costume. It was something much closer to normal clothes.

Re: Does this superhero team exist?

The only thing coming close that i can remember is Marvel's Exiles comic featuring alternate versions of known heroes/villains across the multiverse teaming up and travelling through various universes to set history straight whenever something deviated from it.

fear enough when he was the Red/Blue Blur, but when he was just The Blur, the long black coat, and top with the S shield on it, its alot more costume like, if not the traditional Superman costume.

It was interesting reading those from each side, you sometimes only saw the parts that mattered to the hero of the book you were reading...

Let me try to get this across one more time. I never said he wasn't willing to wear any kind of costume; he wouldn't get very far as an actor with that attitude. I said that he wasn't willing to wear the Superman costume specifically. There's a big difference, sartorially, between wearing a logo t-shirt and black duster and wearing tights and a cape in bright primary colors. Many today would consider the latter quite silly or embarrassing to wear.

I think the Donner Superman was something like 34 when he finally got back from his intergalactic training montage with the ghost of Jor-El
No. He had to be 29 or 30, tops. Clark was still in High School when Pa died. It was shortly after he discovered the fortress. Jor-el mentioned the training took either ten or twelve years (I think).

Is there any superhero team where the members are all the same person, but from different universes? So like you've got a badass normal version, a cyborg version, a wizard version, a mutated animal version, an opposite sex version, etc.
Not a superhero team in the traditional sense, but the Fringe Division characters on the show of the same name have super-genius polymaths and telekinetics with regenerative powers (amongst other powers), and have both fought against or teamed up with versions of themselves from alternate universes and timelines, along with AI shapeshifters, alien-like mostly evil future humans, and other amazing allies and enemies.

Didn't Alan Moore introduce multiple Supremes to the Supreme title? I think they have some sort of headquarters where they meet.

you misunderstood my post, I was not so much commenting on Tom Welling not wanting to wear the costume, but on Clark Kent not wearing one, until the point he became The Blur. Any Clark Kent (whatever corner of the DC Multiverse, he exists in, has to be willing to wear one a costume at some stage, until the black "duster" he had not worn one. It was a step on the way to being Superman, that he wore a costume when he did his crime fighting.

Well, yeah, that much is self-evident, but it's not what I was talking about. I specifically raised the subject of the actor's willingness, not the character's.
