** ImprobableAimingSkills, he only shoots to wound. That doesn't explain how he avoids getting brought up on a ton of aggravated assault charges. . .

** The series also goes out of its way to show that it's Clark's time in Smallville, the lessons he learned there and the influence of his parents, that truly makes him Superman. The ghost of Jonathan Kent even lampshades it in the finale: "Always carry Smallville with you." Clark's body may be in Metropolis, but his heart, always and forever, is in Smallville.

* Lex [[spoiler: losing his memories of his time in Smallville]] makes a whole lot more sense when you thinkof comic book Lex's reasons for his grudge against Superman: None, or extremely petty. That's the whole point. Now that Lex [[spoiler: has no more memories]] he is closer to the comics then before. He's an angry, cynical, selfish bastard who hates Superman and pretty much everyone else, but he has no real reason anymore. Just like in the comics where he's an angry, cynical, selfish bastard who hates Superman and pretty much everyone else, but there he had no good reason.

* In both "Luthor" and "Kent" it shows a version of Clark if he was raised by Lionel Luthor called Clark Luthor. On Earth-2, his homeworld, he is revealed to be Ultraman. In the comics, Ultraman was leader of the Crime Syndicate, an evil version of the Justice League in the Anti-Matter Universe. So if Ultraman is on Earth-2, who's to say that the other members of the Crime Syndicate(Owlman, Johnny Quick, Superwoman, Power Ring, Atomica, White Martian) aren't there, and are not currently active ?

* In the season one episode "Hourglass," Cassandra Carver can see the fate of those she touches. She sees a vision of Lex In a white suit standing in a field of flowers. It begins to rain blood and the field turns into a pile of corpses. After the vision ends, Cassandra dies and Lex never hears his fate. Later, In the season 4 episode "Scare," a fear gas causes Lex to see his worst fear, Which is almost identical to Cassandra's vision (which again, he never saw). Lex's greatest fear is tragically his fate. This detail was hard to notice unless you binged the show as the episodes aired 3 years apart.

* In the fifth season of ''{{Smallville}}'', I hated how Cyborg didn't look a slight bit like his comicbook counterpart, but just recently, it occurred to me; the point was his comicbook look wasn't necessary since it would be too conspicuous for a giant robot guy walking around and the Cyntechnics guys did him a favor by making him look 100% human since this could've been easily fixed in the comics. No real reason is given for not fixing him in the comics, so it works here.

* In "Splinter" Why was Jonathan Kent talking to Lionel a man who tried to murder a friend of the family. Lionel tried to KILL Lex. He tried to KILL Chloe. He's gone to JAIL. People don't just TALK to people like that and allow them on their property.


Added DiffLines:

* What was Jimmy “Henry” Olsen’s family’s reaction when they found out that he was killed by the jealous lover of his wife.
* In "Splinter" you're really not sure which of Clark's paranoid delusions were real, which were partially real, and which were completely fake. Such as the truck Clark flipped over.

** Actually it seemed more like mental instability brought on by shock and nursing his evil side through murder (even in an attempt to suppress Doomsday on [[JerkassVictims]]). The implication is at that point he had no good left in him (and probably never had).

* In ''Masquerade'', when Desaad attempts to corrupt [[IncorruptiblePurePureness Chloe]] with the SevenDeadlySins, starting with lust. Why does he use an illusion of Clark instead of Oliver to seduce her? Now, while we all want to believe that it is because Desaad knows Chloe loves Clark more than Oliver, there is another possible explanation. The opposite of lust, chastity, originally means ''monogamy'', not ''abstinence''.
** Chloe and Oliver weren't married though...

to:

*** Indeed, in RealLife it's a depressing fact that many seemingly sane people unexpectedly snap when they lose their love interest, and considering that Davis had just gone through a year of gory, gruesome events that culminated in him trying to justify Doomsday's killings, it should be pretty obvious that he's gradually lost his sanity over the course of the season.

** Chloe and Oliver weren't married though...
''abstinence''.



* Gordon Godfrey, and perhaps the other two of the Unholy Trinity, were just innocent people possessed by Darkseid. Oliver killed them all.
** Desaad went through the same process as shown in a deleted scene in ''Masquerade''.
** In "Supergirl", Godfrey was possessed. In his next appearance, I believe they stated that Godfrey had now voluntarily joined Darkseid. He ''was'' a Strawman after all.



** RuleOfCool. Also, his scowl is probably his default expression in [[DorkAge season 9]].
