Re: Smallville's influence in the comics, other DC media
After seeing the latest excellent Man of Steel trailer, and reading some of the plot synopsis, it seems that this version of Supes is also a bit of a "late bloomer" and struggles into adulthood coming to grips with who and what he is.
Remember Smallville getting flack for this approach a decade ago?
Looks like the show influenced way more than just the de-aging of the Kents.
