    Yeah, basically here's the way to think about it. There are certain conceits to accept in a Superman movie.

    One is that he can fly.
    Another is that he is relatively invulnerable.
    A third is that people don't recognize that he is Clark Kent.

    While there are certainly plot related elements that the movie will address and you can consider based on plausibility, but it doesn't make sense to accept the background canon as far as whether he can fly and not accept that glasses are a really good disguise for him.

    I liked that Superboy or maybe it was Adventure Comics issue where they introduced Ultra-Boy and it confirmed that Clark uses his x-ray vision to looks through boys' clothes.

    Also, Pete Ross is sort of like a closeted male version of Lana Lang, except more competent in his stalking.

    Yes - its the rare combination rim job and money shot, successfully attempted so far only by professionals and a few Olympic athletes in competition.

    This is so wrong, but for some reason the thought of a gay Superman reminds me of nothing so much as Eddie Murphy's "Gay Mr. T" bit from the 1980s.

    There may have not been a gay Superman, yet, but in 1960s Superboy #78:
