Even though it would have been really cool to see Tom in a Superman suit, I’m really glad that I was able to see him play Clark again.

Personally I felt let down. If his Superman had “gone out swinging” so to speak, I’d have been okay. But nooooo…

I can see how you feel let down. And yeah I’m I’m a bit disappointed as well. At least we did get to see him counter Lex’s attack. I’ve been wanting a Superman vs Lex scene. So at least they gave us that little fight between the two. I would have liked to have seen a big fight between Lex and Superman, but I’ll take what I can get with that little confrontation between Clark and Lex. It was great to see Clark win with that “ I’m still stronger” line am I right? 🙂

A lot of people were glad that Clark and Lois got a happy ending which I understand and even share that opinion. I’m glad they own the farm again. I’m glad they have daughters together. I’m glad they’re happy. BUT the idea that he’s got to give up his powers for a normal life is an idea that to me seems more at home in the middle of the series and the days of pining for Lana and haggling with the Jor-El Fortress A.I. than it is 8 years after the end of Season 10 when Clark had grown to… Read more »

I am glad to see that Clark and Lois are still together with a family, but you do have a good point MattComics.

Agree completely, MattComics. The cameo definitely came with conditions. I knew he wasn’t going to wear the suit, but I wish they had just found a better way to write around it.

I don’t count this as canon to Smallville at all. Smallville just like CW had its own multiverse, an Earth-2 for itself different from the CW Earth-2. Besides the show was more than just Lois and Clark it was Martha, Chloe, Lex, Conner, and so much more. Seeing those two only cheapened it.

Well there is the multiverse. So it is possible that this wasn’t the same Clark and Lois from the Smallville series. They could be alternate versions.

I’m in the group of people who didn’t like his scene. There’s no problem with Welling not wearing the suit, he never wanted to do it so obviously he wouldn’t want it now. And simply he shouldn’t to do it nowadays. I won’t say he looks like Thor in Avengers: Endgame, but (unlike B. Routh) he is not in shape to wear the suit. It’s not even his acting. It’s just the idea of ending so soon his carreer as Superman just doesn’t fit the character. I’d understand it in a much older version of the character. But so young… Read more »

2 things.

1) 300 votes of the majority of fans…?

2) Guggenheim said that the season 11 comics would be Bannon for the crossover. On season 11, Clark becomes familiar with the multiverse because he faces his own version of crisis. This Clark was not. That means this WAS a version of the Smallville Clark different than the one we watched for 10 years on the Smallville series.

Is it possible that Guggenheim didn’t read any of the Smallville season 11 comics and said that it was cannon without doing the research?

So this could be an alternate version of the Smallville Clark and Lois. Well here’s another way of looking at it. True that this version of Clark gave up his powers, but maybe the version of Clark that was on the show Smallville, still has his powers, and is still Superman. I like to think that’s a good possibility, and that the one that was in this crossover was a Clark from another alternate reality much like Smallville’s Ultraman.

I was thinking about the 80’s/90’s Superboy series and I have a question about it. Is it connected to the Reeve Superman continuity? Because there were a lot of things in that series that were taken out of Reeve’s version. Addis Ababa for Kryptonite’s introduction for example. Also the aliens that made themselves look like Superboy’s birth parents Jor-El and Lara in one of the seasons. There was also an episode of when they showed the Kents finding Clark and it was very similar to when they found Clark. The ship was a somewhat crystallized ship. Although now that I… Read more »

I was thinking that since there will be a new Superman and Lois series with them most likely raising their son Jon, then that would mean there would be two separate versions of Superboy in two separate series. One on the Titans show Conner, and the other on the Superman and Lois show Jon. So if there can be two different versions of Superboy, then there certainly can be two different versions of Superman. So WB, there can be a Brandon Routh Superman series at the same time as a Tyler Hoechlin Superman series. Make it happen WB!
