and become the World's savior?

All signs thus far tell us he does NOT want to become what Jor-El wants him to.. but shouldn't him saving the World come from within and be something he truly wishes to do from the bottom of his heart for the good of the planet? Not because he "has to."
 
Quick question. How should Clark save the world?

Let me rephrase that. Whats does the World need saving from? (in the Smallville universe)

You're missing the point. What I'm trying to say is at this point in the Smallville universe the world doesn't need saving. When that time does come that's when Clark will don the tights.

And the reason "Smallville has yet to realize that there's life beyond Kansas is because the show is called "Smallville". So the show's going to revolve around "Smallville" and not the rest of the world. This show is not about Superman's world travels.:cwink:
 
chloe will tell him to do it, chloe is the real man behind the tights

Lana - You do something with your Powers like become a Super Hero & wear a costume & save the damn world or I will kill myself

Clark - :wow:

From suffering The Same tragic fate as Krypton .

Even Raya said it to Kal-EL in Fallout

Raya: Your father was hard on himself, too. He felt guilty that he couldn't save Krypton. His only redemption was sending you to save Earth.

Kal-EL : Save it from what?

Raya: Extinction. Your civilization is going to destroy itself, just like Krypton. You should know this, it was part of your training. - "fallout"

The point is people keep mentioning that Clark should be Superman now. As if there was a big threat looming that Clark is ignoring. That is not the case. Whenever Clark sees a threat he takes care of it, even if he has to put his own life on the line.

Seriously though. We are talking about maybe another season before we should get into this. IMO though, I think with Lana traveling down the road she is on and Chloe pushing him toward his "destiny", he will leave Smallville and don the cape. Lana is really the only reason he is not resuming his training. He was going to until she returned. Clark said: They won't always be here. Losing Lana has made me realize no matter how close I get, someday they'll all be gone. And all the time I've spent ignoring my destiny, trying to be something I'll never be...human.
She is not the same person he fell in love with and they are traveling in opposite directions. Chloe said it best: Isis brought Ra to his knees. And she will not let that happen.
 
From what??

Martha: Every world needs its Heroes. They inspire us to be better than we are. And they protect us from the darkness that's just around the corner. - Zod

Oliver: Clark, you have abilities I couldn't even dream of. And I admire that you use them to save the people you're close to.
Clark: But?
Oliver: There's a whole world of people out there, Clark. They need us. With your potential... you can't wait for them to come to you. When you're ready to do something about that... you let me know. - Arrow

Oliver: (to Clark) Apparently you were too busy using your powers to bale hay to realize that there's a crime wave in Metropolis... let me ask you a question: are you ever going to get off your ass and finally do something for a change? - Rage
 
and become the World's savior?

That's Jesus not Superman. Although if you've seen Superman Returns, I can understand your confusion.

"Superman" is not what Jor-El wants Clark to be. Jor-El wants Clark to be the guardian of Earth, "Superman" is Clark doing it, but on his terms. There's a big difference there.

Score 3 for Kal-El 8.

And I'm sure if you had the time, you could find more.

Originally Jor-El's message was telling Clark to rule the people of earth. Man sure knows his way around mixed messages. He wants Clark to finish his training. It can be safely assumed he wants Clark to save Humanity from it's greatest danger (as he tried to do on krypton). But Superman isn't what Jor El wants Clark to become. Jor El wants the Kal-El we saw in Crusade. To be Superman, and a symbol of hope and peace for the world. That's straight out of Clark's mind, nay, heart.

Or Brainiac in Honduras or Phantoms around the world....

His "Training" has begun, it's to watch over Kara. Babysitting his little cousin is apparently his destiny, or more important than anything else. At least in Jor-El's eyes. :whatever:

:up: Jor-El wants Clark to save the people of earth, as Jor-El tried to save the people of Krypton. Superman, however, is a symbol. He's not just a man, or a hero. He is destined to become something far greater, than even Jor-El, had imagined.

It is when Kara is potentially dangerous. If she is here to raise Hell, Clark is the only person powerful enough to stop her.

Jor-El is right to have his reservations about Kara. We know they're not justified, but her father was a sociopath. Chances were that Kara wouldn't fall far from the tree.

Kara could still end up being dangerous. Even if unintentionally. If she encounters Red or Black Kryptonite, Clark might still be the only one who can stop her.
