** Subverted with the teasing Clark gets from his friends and coworkers about his name. He truly finds it annoying but at times tries not to let it bother him. By the time he meets Lois Chaudhari he'd been set up in almost two dozen blind dates with a bunch of Loises, Lanas, and at one point a Cat Grant. [[spoiler: After he's abducted by the government and nearly vivisected, Clark very nearly gives one of his coworkers a beat down after hearing another Superman joke.]]

* XRayVision: Clark isn't entirely sure how it works, but he doesn't use it on people unless he ''really'' needs to, just to be safe.

->''Maybe I had a '[[TitleDrop 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.''
->-- Clark Kent

* 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.
