I'm not sure Discord should count. He was never normal. Being a spirit of chaos is his very essence. It just sounds like saying it's this trope when a big scary monster looks like a big scary monster.

Anyone else reckon the image should be smaller?

  • Clark on Smallville fits this. Along with the 6-foot-4, heavily muscled frame and chiseled features one would expect of the future Superman, the character is almost always wearing blue jeans and a red shirt, foreshadowing his future costume.

Should be fairly obvious why but in case it isn't; it's not that astonishing that a guy who grows up to be tall and muscular happens to be tall and muscular during his teenage years. And its not that odd that a character that favors primary colors in his daily wear would carry that preference over to his costume design (even if Martha made the costume for him as is the case in the comic books, its not that weird that she'd take into account Clark's preferences.) I think this is a case of putting the cart before the horse. Because we were introduced to the adult Superman long before the Smallville version, we think its funny that there are all these little signs of what he'll eventually become but, for the most part, it only makes sense that those signs would be there.
