I was commenting on the absurdity of the concept.

I could buy it working within the context of animation and comics, but not in any live action medium meant to be taken seriously.

Though it's questionable whether Smallville was meant to be taken seriously, especially in it's final years.

They handled the glasses and CK disguise in a very 'tongue and cheek' manner, since they knew they were screwed. They weren't even consistent with it either (and this was right before Superman appeared to the public).



It would have made more logical sense to introduce the CK disguise several seasons prior, instead of just putting the real farmboy Clark persona in Metropolis and the DP.

I honestly wish they went with a sci-fi explanation for this one, since Smallville has already pulled the 'deus ex machina' magic card hundreds of times.
