TheModernAgeOfComicBooks: Season ten. {{Reconstruction}} of TheCape / IdealHero, ComicBook/KingdomCome-style. The characters, having gone through lots of growth--especially in the last few seasons--come full circle and embrace their classic identities, but often with an innovative twist. Clark going back to a more classic red-and-blue outfit with the "S" symbol. Lois and Clark being a couple, and Lois (now in on "The Secret") helping Clark protect his identity and more actively helping him with his missions. Lots of {{ShoutOut}}s and tributes to the past (the class reunion episode, all the tons of fan-demanded cameos of older characters, etc.) The symbolic defeat of {{ComicBook/Darkseid}}. "[[{{CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming}} Always hold on to Smallville]]".

* Series/{{Buffy the Vampire Slayer}} left {{the WB}} for {{UPN}} after its fifth season. That fall? A new show premieres on the WB about a teenager who has trouble living life as a normal person when he has to fight all the monsters arising in the small, unassuming town of Smallville. He and his group of pals team up and through Main/ThePowerOfFriendship and a healthy dose of superpowers, they save the day! Smallville IS Buffy, but without Joss Whedon.

* The scar on Clark's chest started glowing and forced him to take the ring off whenever he came too close to hurting anyone too much. With no inhibitions he could've easily accidentally killed someone during sex.


Added DiffLines:

[[WMG:Clark never really loved Lana, it was the kryptonite necklace.]]
His whole life, Clark's parents made him fear the day when his powers would be revealed and someone would take him away. Lana was the one girl he couldn't talk to because he got sick whenever he was around her. Even if he didn't realize it was the necklace, subconsciously he put the pattern together and fell in love with her as a defensive mechanism, because the girl you can't be around is the girl who will never learn your secret and being in love with her made it possible for him to stay away from every other girl, again so they would never get close to his secret either. Notice how quickly he forgot about Lana whenever a girl with powers of her own became an option. It's also why he never loved Chloe, she was a dogged reporter, the ultimate threat to his secret.

UsefulNotes/TheSilverAgeOfComicBooks: Season four. Much more "out there" stories helped by the introduction of magic into the canon, and a greater willingness of the writers to just embrace all the humorous possibilities afforded to them by the inherent wildness of a world where sci-fi and magic coexist. Introduction of TheFlash and the Fortress of Solitude (which was first seen during the Silver Age).

Think about it, Lana should have died at least 10 times in the first season alone, but was saved by Clark, and not all of these were meteor freaks either, other times it was just random stuff that was meant to kill her. So, FinalDestination style, Death is continually trying to kill her and Clark keeps getting in the way. Its lessened now that it got John Kent, but her days are still numbered.

** Considering he was all about banging Alicia under RedK that seemed pretty unlikely.

* His fear of this was the canon reason he didn't get together with Lana more once she learned his secret; all their times together happened when she got powers or he lost his. It's also probably not true in the Smallville canon: in the episode "Relic", we learn that Jor-El met an ancestor of Lana's and they apparently had no trouble making love. Although, it is likely that Jor-El had some way around the "WomanOfKleenex" problem that he brought from Krypton, since it was still a vibrant interstellar community at the time.

** UnJossed: Isobel's "Virgin" requirement refers to the historical meaning of virgin, which simply referred to a lack of marriage rather than a lack of sex.
*** UnUnJossed: Isobel sampled Lois' hair and declared Lois a "Naughty Girl" and for as much as they implied about all of Lois' experience, a wedding would surely have been cited

* It's also implied that, even with the Red K affecting him, there's enough of "Clark" left (and Clark's hopeless love for Lana) to prevent him from "sealing the deal."
