Yeah, it's cool we'll finally have a Smallville season without the annoying restrictions. I totally get why DC will restrict them when it comes to Bruce and Diana, but when it came to Smallville, at least in my eyes DC's restrictions never made much sense. They let them bring in huge characters like Darkseid and Doomsday, yet they didn't let them bring someone like Vandal Savage, so they had to change him into Curtis Knox. They didn't let Bart be called Flash, he had to be called Impulse. Lois and Clark couldn't be close for so long because they were "too young". All sorts of little details that in the long run were annoying. Smallville was not connected to the main DC Universe anyway so why would DC want to make the producers do things that are supposed to fit in the comic canon? I'm so glad this issue is over.
