Pa Kent dies, and Clark blames himself for not being able to save him, because he didn't use his powers.......

I agree Pa kent death will be factor but it alone cant be the reason .If he feels guilty about not using his powers to help save his father,then his response wld be to make up for it by using his powers which is the opposite of wht he seems to be doing in the arctic.

I just had a different idea on how it plays out though.It cld be that Clark supersenses tune him to hearing/feeling the suffering of the people around him and after pa kents death it becomes to difficult to handle and so goes into isolation to get away from the cries.He is torn between using his powers to help(which he does once in a while) and his fear of the world not being ready.
