If you’re a comic book nerd or more specifically Superman nerd then you know that the Smallville series Finale was today. It seems very appropriate for it to have been Friday the 13th because as awesome as the finale was it just seems like a little bad luck that Smallville is no longer going to show anymore.
Michael Rosenbaum as Lex Luthor was so cool! The face to face that Lex and Clark had was awesome. Lex Luthor has got to be the coolest villain ever, he is a regular guy and his nemesis is Superman, that has got to say something. He quoted Shakespeare and he made it cool to be smarter than everybody. Nobody would have thought to call Lex a nerd but he loved comic books and reading and playing the piano. Now that is a nerds villain if I have ever seen one.
Tom Welling , the heart and soul of this series has made every Superman fan proud. Christopher Reeve was very wise to have passed the torch to Tom. Tom Wellings portrayal of Superman has been fantastic and it was worth the wait to see him run to the roof pull his glasses off and open his shirt to reveal the Superman S. Tom Welling reminded fans of who Superman really is, not just an Alpha male with good hair and confidence but a good guy that always put the safety of others above his own in order to protect and inspire. For all Superman fans there will be 2 images that come to mind when you think of him, first and always will be Christopher Reeve in the tights with the S and the other is going to be a young Tom Welling playing a farm boy wearing flannel and solid blues and reds trying to inspire his friends to be the best they can be.
From this Smallville fan and fans everywhere I would like to say Smallville was awesome and inspiring. I will miss this show but good thing I have the dvds.
