I'm not really all that crazy about the idea of him identifying as Kal-El from a very young age. My ideal Superman has a human side, where Clark isn't entirely a disguise. He does put on an act as Clark, but it's like how Bruce Wayne is a real person, it's just in public he pretends to be a careless playboy.
