to:

* Supermanís farm background may have affected him in both a positive and negative manner:
** Positively, he learnt to care for the earth and to nurture all living things, and to accept the natural consequences of life (ie he doesnít try to interfere, but simply lets things proceed as they should).
** Negatively, he has a wide-eyed idealistic view of the world, and no real understanding of social compromises and concessions that ordinary people need to make to manage their lives, which means enemies can use underhanded tactics (turning others against Superman, etc) against him effectively.
* Superman is attracted to Lois Lane because she doesnít adore him, but neither is she afraid of him.

*** For a real life example, consider that there are famous people who do look a bit like each other: Creator/KeiraKnightley and Creator/NataliePortman for instance (Knightly played Portman's double in ''Film/ThePhantomMenace'' specifically for this reason). "Hey, Clark Kent sorta looks like Superman... bet he gets hassled by it all the time" is probably a realistic response for most people. The other common argument is to point out that someone, especially writers, can be famous and still not be well-known faces. Stephen King can probably be safely anonymous much of the time.

* Just got the significance of Superman's AsskickingPose. Crossing his arms is not just the standard "I'm angry" expression - it's also his way of saying he could beat you at least five different ways ''without'' ever uncrossing his arms.

*** Another point is the difference in how Clark's wardrobe fits him. Superman's outfit is form-fitting, and so his physique is well-defined when he's in-costume. As Clark Kent, he typically wears loose-fitting common clothes that don't emphasize his body build.
