I swear to God if I see one more person make some insulting comment blaming him for not wearing the Superman suit in the finale I will not be responsible for my actions.
Me too! I almost threw my laptop when I saw that the "reviewer" on io9 had said that.

I've really disappointed across the board with how some people have been treating Tom in the last few days. I guess I expected better both from the critics and from the fans. Perhaps, I was wrong to expect better at this point. But truly I found some of the behavior to be incredibly distasteful.

The bottom line is that we have no idea what truly went into how Smallville chose to handle the reveal of Superman and how they chose to use the supersuit. We just don't know. Everything is speculation. So I truly don't appreciate anyone---critics or fans---laying all the blame at Tom's feet and making baseless accusations about him.

To me, Tom Welling is Superman. I don't care if we didn't see a full body shot of him in the suit. He played a character for 10 years that was kind, gracious and humble. His character gave hope and inspiration to everyone that he encountered. He saved the world in the finale. He's Superman. And I would have taken all of that---the stuff of substance---over one 10 second full body shot of him in the costume. It's just at costume. It doesn't negate or replace all the hard work and sincerity that Tom has brought to Clark for the last 10 years.

It's just nice to see some Tom love here. :) Makes me happy.
