Well, Bale Batman seemed sane enough.  Very... driven... but not a kook.

I think what happened is in the first movie Supes didn't have time to wash the suit before everything went down. But, you know once he put it in the wash and added some Oxyclean the bright colors returned.

Yay.  More painted on muscles for a guy that already looks like a roided out frat bro.  No super-nipples though, which is surprising.

Clark: "Dang Lois, it's so cold out here my nipples could cut glass!
Lois: "yeah, I'm pretty coo..."
Clark: "... Literally"

That's a good point.  If I was a bad guy, which would I be more afraid off: a pissed off Superman flying at you wearing red and blue or a pissed off Superman flying at you naked with a raging erection.

Personally, I would more more afraid of the latter.

Yeah, I would roll commando if I were him. Or pull a Borat/Zardoz thing off.

Apparently Supes does not have a super sense of humor.

Isn't this incarnation of Supes one of the ones where his suit comes from the lining of his spaceship-crib or something? I seem to recall him "finding" the suit as-is, rather than stealing a bunch of superfiber from the military or something.

I don't really get why Superman needs to be so muscle-cut like a Rob Leifeld drawing. Sure, he should be in shape, but it's not like his powers come from muscle tissue and 0% body fat.

Kal himself also traveled to Earth in a spaceship - you may recall, this was covered in the opening credits - but was only in his early(?) twenties(?) during the movie timeline, not "thousands of years" old. You're thinking of the wrong spaceship.

In some tellings of this story, Ma Kent makes this suit out of cloth she finds inside the craft (how her needles can get through the fabric but bullets cannot is anyone's guess), and in at least one other I know of, the suit was infant-sized when Kal was, and grew with him.

// also, if that's where you throw up your hands as the plot gets too ridiculous, you have probably never watched a comic book movie before

If I remember some of the stuff in the movie or side material said that a Kryptonian scouting ship commanded by one of his relatives was the one that discovered Earth and then crash landed.  Jor-El used the information he had sent in deciding to send Clark to Earth.

Needles can go through it but bullets cannot because it is obviously a fabric made from a super stable non-Newtonian fluid.  A low surface area object going at low velocity can easily pass through it.

Alternately, it has a multitude a needle-sized holes already in it, either because it is a woven fabric or it was made that way intentionally for breath-ability.  Last thing anyone wants is Super Funk in the costume.  That stuff never completely washes out.

Heh, I think the only reason it occurred to me is that the issue (it was a compendium of DC origin stories*) has a pic of Martha USING REGULAR SCISSORS to cut the fabric. Not even a page or two later, there's bullets bouncing off the suit like shower spray.

Though the thought of her - a rural Kansan farmer - using a laser-knife or something crazy futuristic to cut this fabric of unknown origin and composition to make a superhero suit for her adopted alien son is exactly what comics have prepared us for.

*IIRC, it was Supes, Bats, Flash, and JLA (which also had smaller versions of Martian Manhunter, WW, and Black Canary's origins)

She may have used something found in the spaceship.  Kryptonian thread and needle left by Kal-El's Mom.

He looks like that because he is strengthened by the power of our yellow sun; it literally makes his muscles look like that. In my geekiest moments, I've worked on a theory that all of his powers can be attributed to energy absorption/manipulation, even his invulnerability. It allows for him to unconsciously manipulate magnetic fields and nanoparticles while flying, provides a molecular net effect leading to his invulnerability, excites particles for heat vision, and changes their vibration for his super-breath...etc. There was even a bit of handwaving in the 90's to explain why the glasses worked, to the effect that, in addition to the glasses, he was subtly manipulating his facial features and underlying bone structure when posing as Clark, to avoid detection in his Superman persona.

This would be completely 1990s Marvel-style but I'm kind of digging the costume with that jacket he's wearing. Obviously something to protect the costume/maybe keep him warm between takes but he pulls it off.

Brainsick: There was even a bit of handwaving in the 90's to explain why the glasses worked, to the effect that, in addition to the glasses, he was subtly manipulating his facial features and underlying bone structure when posing as Clark, to avoid detection in his Superman persona.


This is about the only part of that that I'd willingly buy (because it's not really handwaving).

People suffering from Dissociative Identity Disorder (what they used to call multiple personality disorder) often switch to other "parts" (personalities), and this can involve things like changing facial and body comportment (how you hold yourself - like slouching or a resting half-smile) - I've even heard from caregivers that eye color can change (this is true of non-DID people as well. My friend's eyes change from blue to green and back every few hours).

Like Batman changing his voice (even Conroy's Batman did this, and to good effect). Though, how a broad 6'4 guy with blue eyes and black hair doesn't get mistaken for a slightly-less-broad 6'3 guy in glasses with black hair and blue eyes is another part of that universe I can't grasp. Maybe not everyone at the Planet would figure it out, but anyone from a Metropolis-style TMZ would be on that like shiat on velcro.

// I'm built exactly nothing like Jason Momoa (he's more muscular, but we're about the same height and build otherwise), but people tell me I look like him - you're telling me no one outside Lois Lane has ever said to Clark: "Hey, you know you look like that Superman guy in glasses? Maybe stop with the double cheeseburgers, and hit the gym a bit more, and you could be his stunt-double"?

Part of that is that in the comics theory (not in the movie), no one knew Superman had a secret identity.  Superman was Kal-El from Krypton.  People knew he lived at the Fortress of Solitude.  His job was saving people.  No one had a reason to suspect he had a secret life as a reporter.  The idea was that unlike other heroes, Superman was just who he was.

Of course, that does kind of hand wave all the attempts by Jimmy Olsen in the comics to find Superman's Secret identy, but those comics were awful.

Perry might, with a draft of tomorrow's layout on his desk, say something offhand to Clark just about the resemblance without it turning into "Also, why are you never around when stuff goes bad? You're a super-wuss then, but most of the time you're a pretty super man. *gasp* SUPERMAN! HOW DID I NOT SEE THIS BEFORE?!"

*Drogo is not "secret". I guess, technically, his role in Aquaman is still up in the air, making that character a secret identity, but he has no secret identity in the way we usually understand the term.

It got mentioned in the comics and TV show pretty frequently, but everyone laughed it off because Clark Kent wasn't the type of guy who would be Superman.

I mean, people will say you look like Jason Mamoa, but no one thinks you are him.  Same thing with Clark and Superman.  Why would an all powerful alien be playing dress up as a normal guy.

Ah, I'm not a big consumer of the comics (that origins compendium aside) or the TV shows, though I did like MoS. I would like if they'd at least mention it in the movies (if not put a lampshade on it) - as you say, mention in passing that they look alike, then leave it alone because who could possibly think that bookish, dorky, awkward Clark is the suave ladies' man in blue?

No one thinks Clark is Superman, but for no one to even mention the resemblance seems odd. The irony is good for a few filler jokes at least.

That's Samaritan, that book's version of Superman, who is constantly stressed out because he wants to save as many people as possible, but even with super-speed it is hard to be everywhere at once. He's got a cool backstory, too, where was is from the future and was sent back in time to prevent a future where the environment was wrecked from happening, and the time travel process gave him powers. Apparently, he needed to save the Challenger shuttle because one of their descendants winds up changing the timeline for the better, which is what makes him realize how important even a single life is. The really cruel part of the story is that he succeeds in his mission, but in doing so his family disappears with the bad timeline.

/This whole backstory was given in a few pages during a dinner date he was having with the Astro City version of Wonder Woman, too.
//But DC seems to thinks we need to constantly reintroduce the origin of Superman
