^ Indeed, and often provides for escapism story telling.
To me, the big problem with Superman - when you really look at his powers - is that he's got all this superspeed and yet he never uses it even though it would allow him to kick total ass.
^ Yeah I agree, which is something "Smallville" played around with in absence of flight...although they did so for too long of course, and Action Comics under Grant Morrison is making use of his super speed. It's an underused power of Clark's.
And really not one much appreciated by the ladies.
The thing about superspeed is that, in the absence of ameliorating powers like the Flash, or just ignoring it (which is, granted, perfectly fine), is that you would fuck everything around you up.
I don't get this. It seems to me that he always uses Super speed. I don't see his speed being ignored for the purposes of the story other than other power tweaks that are used. For example, Superman is just as strong as the story needs him to be and no more.
pfft....like he cares.
Looks like this is more of the casual Dean Cain Clark. Not what I was expecting, but still pretty cool.
Or the John Byrne Clark.
Actually, the profile close up looks like Tom Welling a bit.
He looks awesome as Clark Kent!
Seeing Clark ride a bike is so.... weird!
I imagine Clark saying something about riding a bike to be more economical.
ZOMG! Where are teh GLASSES!!!!!111!!!!one!!!!
Guh, these guys just don't GET IT!!!!!
How about "Statistically speaking, next to flying, it's the safest way to travel."
I'm sure riding a bike is dangerous! People that ride bikes at times get run over. But I guess Clark wouldn't have to worry about getting hurt because of that.
Where's his helmet?
And doored. Lots of bikers get doored.
I know, right?! Way to teach quality lessons to kids, Superman! Pfft!
