Considering recent events in #900, I could see the UN grant Superman this now.

Considering the events in 900, they more than definitely say no.

Nah. The fine print says "or next time he saves the whole freakin' planet, he'll leave your nation out". They cut the fine print off before Supes saw it, natch.

Don't you see? This isn't the before, this is the Lex-humbling superdickery that came immediately after.

"What now, Superfool? I've pioneered the airwaves on every broadcasting channel to make sure you witness the genius of Lex Luthor's 40 cake caper!"

"Hey, someone turn up that TV? even with super-hearing, I can't hear it over the noise I'm making baking this 40 ton cake."

"....Fuck it. I'm done. You can keep Lois, I'm halfway done making a sexbot with her face anyhow. Big stupid, alien, jock jerk. Ass. ...Why can't you see that I do it all because I love you...?"

"What was that last bit?"

"I SAID ROT IN HELL, KRYPTONIAN!"

Little did they know back then that Luthor would one day bear Superman a fine, strapping young son, who would go on to have vaguely homoerotic adventures with a boy scientist of his own....

And given the depth of it, it must have been a complete BEAR to bake properly without making the outside like concrete and the middle like raw batter. (Perhaps so many pieces were kept because the damn thing was inedible!)

*Which actually turns out to be a real thing and not just a Morrison thing, albeit not, you know, emitted from anybody's eyes.

So is every supercake section itself made up of many smaller cake sections with their own layers of frosting in-between, or did all the citizens of Smallville use shrink rays on their slices after acquiring them? Because otherwise, even allowing for coloring differences, I can't see how that slice came out of that cake. Unless the sense of scale is all off and that's a giant's house, I suppose.

Clearly. The odd thing is that the slice is (roughly) triangular as if it had come from the centre, and yet the icing is also on the outside. This suggests in addition to the sub-levels of frosting, there are are also additional concentric rings of icing towards the interior.

Kandorian Fractal Sponge may not be the easiest recipe to follow ("Add eggs, stir until mandelbrot" being on example) but the end result is worthwhile.

It's certainly easier than Zeno's cake!

Add 16oz flour
Add 8oz sugar, and mix
Add 4oz butter, and mix
Add 2oz flour, and mix
Add 1oz sugar, and mix
Add ½oz butter, and mix
etc.

infinitely many steps later:

Add 4 eggs, well-beaten, and mix

It's Clark's own recipe for Kandorian Shrinking Cake. If you take the cake out of the protective glass container, it expands to original size (no doubt bursting the building it's in and crushing innocent bystanders in the process).

The cake looks as if its a bit taller than Supes and the same radius as it is high. So, let's assume a cylindrical cake with radius 2m and height 2m. This gives us a cake with volume 25 m³, which at the density of sponge cake (300 kg/m³) comes to 7500 kg (about 8 short tons). How big is Smallville supposed to be? It's possible the real reason people didn't eat it all is that he way overcatered.

Plus, the giant oven that Clark says he built in that panel? Now subdivided into condos, it comfortably houses eight families.
