There's a major mistake in the "Due South" listing. There is absolutely no proof that Ray K - Ray Kowalski - was an orphan and a foster kid. Both of his parents appeared in the episode "Easy Money," and his father appeared again in "Mojo Rising." During the series, Ray also mentioned childhood memories of his parents. There is nothing that points to his parents not being his biological parents. I think whomever posted that Ray K is an orphan and a foster kid had not watched all of the show. The other fact about him is correct.

I think this amount of analysis is a bit excessive and drifting off-topic.

  • The most realistic portrayals of Superman as a believable person tend to aim for a middle ground, neither Clark Kent nor Superman are who he really is, both personas are him playing up different aspects of his true self. He isn't the perfect Superman, but he tries to act like one in public to serve as a role model and inspiration. And he plays up his natural nerdliness as Clark Kent to make sure nobody suspects or notices him. The best example of his TRUE self in this case would be something like the way he was in the scene at the Kent farm in Superman Returns.
    • Notably, an issue of JLA shows the team members having a "telepathic conference". In this shared hallucination, each of the heroes is shown as basically the way they see themselves. Wonder Woman is wearing Greek robes, Plastic Man is an amorphous blob with goggles and a funny bow-tie, Green Lantern is a knight in green armor, The Flash is a blur moving so fast it can't really be seen. And Superman...is wearing overalls and his cape.
