There's some overlap between the football scenes you posted and an earlier post - also, I love the SCIENCE HIGH FIVE.

Got a weird look in the office for laughing at the SCIENCE HIGH FIVE. Awesome.

So is there some reason Clark Kent, Science Supergenius didn't just go to Harvard?

Or is this just going to be the Superman version of those Fantastic Four comics where Reed Richards Gets A Job In Tech Support?

Based on the other post I'm guessing he chose to go for a career that would be personally fulfilling, rather than just one he was good at.

Though this does beg the question why no one has ever asked why reporter Clark Kent doesn't use his mad science skills to help solve a lot of the world's problems. (Like presumably how to resalinate the ocean).

Kinda weird to see Clark as so explicitly on the short side. Isn't he usually about six foot five or thereabouts?

I know the hoodie's gotten some flack, but I kind of like it as well. And it makes some sense; it helps obscure his features when he needs them obscured.

6' 3" standard I believe.

So even given that he still has some growing to do and those football players are likely to be tall, yea, he's probably shorter than main DC Clark.

For as far back as I can remember, I would get a thrill of excitement every time I saw this symbol.

Ugh, I wish Straczynski would go away. One disappointment after another.

He wants a Clark Kent to whom Bruce Wayne would say, "Lighten up, ya emo!"

I think part of the problem is he's doing, like, 3-4 things at once. Of *course* they won't be his A-game, which in turn defeats the purpose.

Not really seeing where Clark is acting "emo". He's confidently approaching a variety of business opportunities that he knows he's good at and can take care of him and his mom forever. If he's also a little conflicted because he knows his dad would have preferred him do something else, that's hardly emo.

I kinda like the idea of Clark Kent being someone who COULD have been an incredible success in any one of a number of fields due to his intrinsic abilities, but chose instead to be a moderate success and help people. I can see why others wouldn't, but...

I'd like it better if he hadn't demonstrated his super-Einstein level intellect to a powerful organisation and then expected NOT to be hunted by every science research recruiter from now until the day he died.

Yeah, I guess that IS a bit of a groaner. In the Silver Age, he probably would have used 'super-hypnosis' or something to make the people he approached forget all about him - maybe he'll do something similar here.

And it's the selfsame sort of thinking that makes me wonder how they're going to get hydrogren peroxide from seawater. Maybe they'll oxidize the water or something.

True enough, but that doesn't solve the problem. Clark had already established himself as an uber-genius here, that sort of thing follows you.

I really don't get where all the complaining about Clark being "emo" is coming from; yes, he's a little introspective throughout "Earth One", but from his perspective, he's (it's implied relatively recently) lost his father, he's a young man trying to figure out what he wants to do with the rest of his life (and trying to juggle this with what his parents have made pretty clear they would like him to do) and, on top of everything, he's as far as he knows the only person on the planet with superpowers. I'm not surprised he's doing a little soul-searching, but it's not like the book is cover-to-cover whining or anything; if anything, he's quite restrained.

Maybe Lex had them change their records out of spite, not knowing that Clark'd prefer a life of journalism as opposed to superscience?

That or when Lex shows up, they decide that why have the reluctant second place when there's someone a little smarter whose willing to actually "do something" with it.

SCIENCE DOESN'T WORK LIKE THAT either. It's not about finding the right magic equation--anyone can do that. It's about either accumulating the experimental evidence to support the equation, or showing how to derive it from an existing theory. By and large you can't do that in four lines no matter how supergenius you is.

Which is not a big deal when you see scientists in, say, Deadpool. It's just weird in something like this, where they're apparently trying to depict Clark's godly performance in other careers halfway seriously.

The art's really getting in the way here. Clark looks like a complete drip, way beyond playing the mild-mannered part, and the size difference between him and the guys that he hammers at the tryouts makes me wonder why the coach wasn't more suspicious of how someone with so much less apparent mass than the linebackers that he steamrollers over could pull that off. (If he's supermassive, then what happens when he weighs in?) The equation thing is a little more probably, but is just Good Will Hunting adapted to superheroics. Really, the most interesting thing about this is the Neodyne exec's facial hair; he went out of the house with that on his face?

You could have done it with three panels, one the guy going in, a second showing Clark waiting, the third with the guy coming out and the SCIENCE HIGH FIVE moment framed in the open door behind him.

Based on the other post I'm guessing he chose to go for a career that would be personally fulfilling, rather than just one he was good at.

But like the plot of this comic is that Clark basically just got out of Smallville Junior College, when he's clearly well more than smart enough to have gone anywhere on scholarship.

It just seems like one more bit of the ridiculous contortions this comic goes to in order to make Clark's gifts into a burden.

What motive would he have to pursue further formal education? He's clearly more than capable of learning on his own, judging by this scene. Nor would he have any difficulty finding a job, again judging by this scene.

Good for you. And in the spirit of Jon Stewarts rally, I respectfully disagree. (Actually, I meant that he looks a bit like emo Tobey Maquire. Wonder will he do a song-and-dance number in the next issue?)
