Well it could be any number of things.
Maybe something bad happened and he feels HE is too dangerous.
Maybe something bad happened and now he's just brooding.
Maybe nothing bad happened, but he's just been on the move for a while because he's afraid of staying in the same place too long and people asking too many questions.
Maybe he's deliberately trying to see what life is like for different people.
Maybe he's a journalist investigating bad conditions for oil rig workers (and it's these bad conditions that lead too an explosion).
We really know next to nothing of the plot. It's kind of exciting though
Really, all I'd like to settle my mind is a pic of Clark with glasses. Because right now, there's this possibility he might not have them, and if that's true it will have a big impact on how I feel about this film and how I approach it.
Just accept that this is the direction they have taken.
Then, you can either decide this version isn't for you and stop watching. OR you can decide to enjoy it for what it is - an elseworlds tale.
'In Elseworlds, super-heroes are taken from their usual settings and put into strange times and places - some that have existed, and others that can't, couldn't or shouldn't exist. The result is stories that make characters who are as familiar as yesterday seem as fresh as tomorrow.'
