What makes him look more like Mon-El than Kal-El to you? Which depiction of Mon-El are you referring to, and which depiction of Superman? If you want to make such a fine distinction, you must have some sort of reason.
The one I like. How I interpret the character.
Bdecause he does not strike me as Superman. I call him Mon El because he strikes me as anything but Superman.
