There would be something kind of cool about Clark just instinctively putting on a cape to play hero.
I can picture it:
Clark is just running around the field. Playing like any other kid. Pa walks up wiping the grease off his hands from the old tractor he had been working on. He leans up against a fence post, just watching. Finally...
Hey Clark. What are you doing?
(still running around)
Yup. I'm saving people. From fires and stuff.
Pa smiles to himself. Then...
What's with the towel?
Clark stops, and looks at his father, puzzled.
He looks down and remembers that he has a towel tied around his neck.
Oh. It's a cape.
A cape? Why a cape?
Clark thinks for a second. Then shrugs.
He smiles, and starts running around again, laughing.
I guess it could be hinted that Clark subconsciously remembers Jor El (who wore a cape) saving him, and just instinctively felt the need to put on a cape when playing hero.
I don't really think they'll do that, but it could work.
