Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

Oh. You didn't hear? As Clark's super sense of smell is developing, he's going down on Lana, he says "Great Scott! Your front bum still smells like Lex Luthor!"

Apparently the aside was to classy and blue sky thinking for Smallville.

wandue responds
its also possible that its an episode where Clark is without his powers, for some reason.
O! The sword is made form Gold Kryptonite?! Losing his powers three times a season is hardly a treat to see the farm boy overcome adversity like a pleb just because it's not brave to be invincible, but generally speaking Clark losing his powers means that he's lost his vulnerability and he can go back to playing hide the space pickle with Lana in her pickled space.

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

Odd though that he would be able to telepathically commune with humans? Different meat, different density, different voltage and ampage and different chemistry... I mean if any non kryptonian animal is fair game for his head listening, then he'd likely go mad like Buffy almost did from the excessive noise

I understand a reinterpretation of the Superman character, had been done numerous times in the last seven decades... but that's just fucking LAME.

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

Like Professor X?

Seriously though, Superman had a telepathic girlfriend in the comics who couldn't "walk" if I must bring up every "lame" telepath I can think of?

Actually telepathy was one of his powers in the Golden Age or whatever the hell they call it now.

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

The telepathy doesn't bug me as much, providing they don't over use it. Although I always did like Con'El Superboy's "tactile telekinesis" which basically let him fuck up things with a touch.

Again.

Scenes/cliches that need to not happen anymore on Smallville.

1) Clark tries to stop the villain of the week, usually about 15 minutes in to the episode, and gets thrown back through a wall or the ceiling in his barn. Villain escapes. (The best one was when Doomsday did it and he just happened to knock over a box with kryptonite in it! )

2) Clark superspeeds in to a situation to rescue someone and runs straight in to a room full of kryptonite meaning he needs to be saved himself. ("Justice" is the best example, ruins an otherwise great episode)

3) Villain of the week is an ordinary human who happens to have some sort of kryptonite-related thing going on (like kryptonite counterfeit money or kryptonite jewelry).

4) Or - Villain of the week is no match for Clark but becomes aware of both his abilities and how to stop them (usually by overhearing Chloe talking about it) and leads Clark in to a trap.

5) Villain of the week is defeated 30 minutes in to the episode leaving us with a 15 minute long musical montage with various shots of Clark pining over Lana/Lois.

6) Not-Quite-a-Villain (i.e. a "hero" with a generally less well developed sense of morality) disagrees with Clark and uses kryptonite/magic on him to get their own way. See Queen, Oliver; Zatara, Zatanna.

7) Clark loses his powers and is, for some reason, turned in to a normal human. Important point here - Clark is not human. His ability to store energy from a yellow sun is a natural ability just like humans have the natural ability to breathe and eat food. If anything, he should keel over and die without it.

7a) Clark loses his powers and ACCEPTS the situation, ignoring all the good that he is now unable to do.

8) Character who doesn't know Clark's secret becomes suspicious only for Clark to be briefly exposed to kryptonite or lose his powers and then get beaten up by the villain of the week right in front of said character.

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

I think they have Clarkie boy lose his powers far too often. I've read Superman comics since I was like 11 years old and only rarely did I ever see him defeated often with just Kryptonite. And Smallville is practically littered with the shit. I'm shocked that his own family farm didn't have at least a quarter ton of green K.

And Lana - good frakking riddance. I mean other than in the 70s and late 60s was Lana Lang even a "main" character let alone the one he treats like gold even when she screws him over again and again and again. I watched that ep from season 7 where she gets his powers and then turns into uber-bitch and he's still all hung up on her. She's showing her true colors ya dumbkopf its not the powers its HER!

Chloe used to be the sane one, now she's kinda goofy in her own way, but I still find her infinitely more attractive than Lana. Even Lois is kinda growing on me when she's not being an utter twat. But they need to seriously limit the Lana and GreenK in this show.

And about frelling time he's gotten a costume... now can we get it to introducing more of the League and then close this show out?

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

aside from introducing "Atom" (Ray Palmer) to the league and replacing Aquaman with an actually useful water based hero, there is not much to be done to the Smallville justice league. Im not keen on stocking it with aliens like HawkGirl, meanwhile WonderWoman is no longer relevant to the 2009 and beyond.

theLeague should be

Leader: Green Arrow
Watchtower: Chloe
Flash aka Impulse
Black Canary
Cyborg
new water based hero (ability to turn into water, even drown someone by jumping inside them and turning to water, or using water pipes to gain access to otherwise unreachable areas.
Atom

recurring heroes:
Aquaman
Superman
Martain Manhunter
Katma Tui

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

I was hoping they'd intro Green Lantern, or at least the CONCEPT of the Green Lantern. Although knowin' Smallville writers they'd BS and say the GL rings are kryptonite

But I wouldn't mind seeing like Guy Gardner in the mix. He'd be awesome. Especially if they do the "bump his head - nice guy. bump his head again - total ass/badass!" thing they did during the 80s/90s. Guy would totally put the moves on Chloe.

I can already see the snarky comments

Clark- I'm not a big fan of green.

Guy- When I was young we use to carry a lantern to guide us home.

Clark would be at odds with Guy then team up and then part ways at the end.

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

I'd think that green lanterns would either be completely off the table or completely fast tracked because of the movie?

If they could get the same guy to play Abin Sur, the bloke who gave Hal Jordan his magic ring with his last dying breaths... I understand other busniess places believe in Synergy?

You say Chloe temporarily gets Ice Maiden Powers for the duration of Guy Gardner's visit? Now that does sound interesting.

Re: Smallville Summer Hiatus Discussion Thread

Brian Peterson and Kelly Sounders have stated that they have plans to introduce more DCU characters down the road this season other than the ones that have already been discussed to this point so Green Lantern is a possibilty. TV Guide has the season nine trailer which I assume is a cleaned up trailer shown from comic con. It seems that at the start of the season at least Clark will be in his Kal-El persona but by choice. Much like the awful Kryptonian Man storyline from the John Bryne era books and that this costume as I have theorized is a modernized version of a Kryptonian robe with the crest of the House of El on it. Keep in mind this is just a theory of mine and will probably be explained differently in the show. I can't believe we have one more month left to go before Season Nine premires.

Also I haven't been following this thread for a while so I missed if NX stated if he would be doing the weekly episode threads? I'm not sure I will be able to do it.
