So Superman: The Movie came on the other day, and of course i started watching it (after not having seen it in years). After Jonathan's heart attack, clark goes off and spends 12 years in the FOS, learning everything about his powers, kryptonian history, etc. He appears suit and all, and flies toward the screen. Then we get bumbling Clark. Now, i clearly am not as familiar with the mythos as everyone else...if this was a Donner creation, if its in any other versions, or addressed in birthright, or what. What i do know, is that Smallville is kind of using the Donner movie as a foundation to tell its story. so the question is: How entrenched in the mythology is this twelve year absence and how will Smallville address it?
