    In your opinion, in which season was Tom Welling's physique look it's best? I'd say season 9 was when Welling was at his physical best.

    Season 4 and first half of season 5 he looked his best!
    After that he got fat especially in season 6 he looked bloated.
    Later in season 7 he put some muscle but his face really started to look old.
    So season 4 and first half of season 5 was best!

    I agree. I remember seeing him at the Red Sox game with the caveman beard and he really looked like he let himself go a bit, and you could see it in the premiere of season 6 when he talks to Chloe at the end of the episode. His jawline didn't looked as chiseled and defined.

    He did looked like he bulked up in season 7, especially in the final scene of Action, but his face didn't look like that of a 21 year old, which is how old Clark was supposed to be at that point.

    I never thought of tom as fat. But yes mid seasons he was best rip. Then later seasons just wasn't as toned. But he was far from fat or out of shape.

    Tom never even remotely looked fat or out of shape. That sounds ******ed even for you Milos. He was in a better shape during S4 and S5, true, but bloated or out of shape? No. He just wasn't as ripped anymore. In S4 he was like chiseled out of a stone, then he let himself go a little but he never looked bad. I wonder how people who pass judgment on him, look in real life...

    Ya and come on you have to remember what his schedule became in mid/end seasons directing, producing, working 6 days a week, 16 hr days. Not a lot of time while shooting to work out and all that. Then he did have in the early yrs.

    And does this look like a fat person to you? He never looked fat anywhere during this show. Maybe he let himself go during some of their spring breaks but he was never fat, all I see here is a pic of guy in his casual life with beard who smiles like an idiot, not a bloated person. Look at the premiere of S6 or the season in general and he's never been in bad shape.

    milos that was between seasons when he was on break. Not really the best photo of tom to pick from. If you want to talk about looks how about actual photos of tom during X season.

    Is it just me or does the Clark from the Season Eleven comic look bigger/more ripped then his live action counterpart?

    I haven't really seen much from the comics, but I wouldn't be surprised if they made him look bigger. It's typical for comics to exaggerate the body. Although I will say that Tom's build overall is part of the reason why I always thought he would be a good Superman. He really did look like something that came straight out of the comics and its still a shame we never saw him in the suit.

    ya comics is a totally different medium so of course they exaggerate looks of characters.

    I mentioned the Clayface-like Lois panel already, right? lol Yeah, he doesn't draw Lois particularly well when it comes to Erica's likeness, and neither did Perez as well. Though he did a better job. Still, I'm kinda glad they try to make the comic has its own feel other than try to make the characters look the same way the entire time.

    Good point, another example of this the Gary Frank drawn Superman had a little more defined physique then Christopher Reeve actually did in the films.

    Yeah, although I'll admit that I really liked how he drew a Superman that was based on Reeve. The body wasn't the same, but he also didn't look like steroid junkie either. I wish comics in general would stay away from using super muscular heroes.

    Agreed, also didn't you use Frank's stuff as an inspiration for some Welling/Superman fan art you did?
