Fanboys rejoice, the “no flights, no tights” rule that kept Clark Kent grounded in Smallville has been revoked!
The Smallville season 9 finale opens with a red blue blur FLYING across the screen to stop a plane from plunging into the Daily Planet while a voice over by Doctor Fate proclaims “Your fate is utterly binding. You’ll lead this generation as Hawkman once led ours.”
Alas, it was just a dream… or was it?
Clark wakes up to find a gift from his mother – his trademark tights! Unfortunately, we don’t actually get to see it, at least not with our own eyes. The costume is reflected in Clark’s eyes, which is made even more intense by some old school Superman theme music!
