Actual superheroes to appear on Smallville

by Brad Trechak, posted Nov 28th 2009 1:35PM
Hawkman vs. Green ArrowMichael Ausiello has posted on EW.com some first pictures of the Justice Society appearance in Smallville. A photo of Hawkman had already been released which admittedly I thought was a gag. Now we have another photo of Hawkman laying the smack down on Green Arrow and a picture of Doctor Fate and Stargirl to boot.

Once again Geoff Johns shows his subject matter expertise. In the comics, Hawkman had conservative tendencies while Green Arrow had liberal ones, so they tended to not get along unless a supervillain showed up when they would team up to stop him or her.

These sort of costumes are a step away from the "no tights no flights" rule that was there since the beginning of Smallville. Perhaps their appearance is marking a policy change for the show. Of course, once Clark puts on the cape and takes flight, the show is pretty much done.

"Of course, once Clark puts on the cape and takes flight, the show is pretty much done."

Why do you say that... as a fan I would still watch.. in fact i grow tired of him not flying at his age.

The no flights-no tights rule was applied only to clark. otherwise they've been in violatation of the no flights since second season when "kal El" flew and the no tights since fourth season with Arthur "Aquaman" Curry.

I'm disappointed they are adding in extravagant costumes like the Hawkman pic. I liked the no-tights approach they were going with now, which in my opinion is a nice modernization and improvement over the classic but very dated tights.

It works for some characters (the Wonder Twins), but generally I find it very disappointing. Very few characters look remotely similar to their comic counterparts. They may as well be new ones entirely.
