I worship at the television altar
Smallville, why do you hate the character I love?

Arg, yes. It drives me nuts whenever Clark is put in a Catch-22 situation, since he's my favorite character on the show.

The latest thing that had me ranting (but not on lj, and I really should change that after Beast) was the insinuation in Eternal that Clark grew up "good" just because he was raised by the Kents, which is discounting the entire concept of Clark/Superman being A GOOD PERSON to begin with.

Which was then encouraged by his adoptive parents.

They love to put him in those no-win situations, and it's so aggravating. It's no way to treat your hero.

I didn't like that either! Of course Superman wouldn't be who he is without the love and values his parents gave him, but he wouldn't be a monster, either. And that's what Davis would always be, no matter how he grew up. You can't even begin to compare the two of them.
