->''Maybe I had a 'secret identity,' but then when you think about it, don't we all? A part of ourselves very few people ever get to see. The part we think of as 'me.' The part that deals with the big stuff. Makes the real choices. The part everything else is a reflection of.''

* ChronicHeroSyndrome: Much like his namesake, Clark suffers from this, though he does his best to keep it in check. But, since the day he saved the teen during the flood, there was no turning back. Lois even reminds him of this when he considers retiring to protect his soon to be born children because she knows how much he would agonize over things he couldn't fix.

From that point onwards, he decides to secretly use his powers for public good, adopting a Superboy and later Superman costume. Later, as an adult, he starts collaborating with the US government agent Malloy and settles down with one of the former joke-hook-ups, Lois Chaudhari, whom he develops genuine feelings for. The story ends in Clark's elderly years, when he looks in satisfaction at his past life, in a society that has accepted the existence of superhumans (including Clark and his children) and benefited from it.

* TheGreatestStoryNeverTold: Even after TheUnmasquedWorld in the DistantFinale, Clark states that he is keeping superpowers secret, [[spoiler: along with the rest of his family]], apparently just because he likes having a quiet life.

* ClarkKenting: Averted, and as such, Clark has to take care to hide his face when in the costume.
* DaChief: Subverted with Ms. Mittelmark at ''Magazine/TheNewYorker''. She offers Clark supportive and constructive criticism on his writing, but all it takes is her saying his name when Clark comes very close to laying into one of his coworkers after another bad Superman joke, then calmly telling him she needs one of his pieces by the afternoon without even looking at him.

** When he starts working more closely with the government, he uses facial inserts and other techniques to subtly change his appearance, and burns his fingerprints off glasses with low-power heat vision. [[spoiler: Malloy still figures it out eventually, but keeps it to himself.]]
