SV Meme Day 15!  
Okay, it's still Sunday in my time zone so I totally made it!

Day 15- Best comic book hero introduction to Smallville



Are you even surprised? No matter how many issues I've had with Oliver (and trust me, I've had a couple), he's still my favorite comic book hero that they've introduced (though J'onn is probably a very close second, lol!). I didn't know Green Arrow, since I haven't read the comics but my shallow side did appreciate him when I first saw him in 'Sneeze'. I think that his moral ambiguity in the beginning was probably foreshadowing how his character would always be, though I didn't see it that way then. I was just worried he was a bad guy (a hot bad guy but a bad guy nonetheless), and when he flirted with Lois in 'Wither', I wanted to hate him. But he continued to win me over with his good looks and his charm and even his imperfections. No, he's not perfect, and yes, I've wanted to punch him before (if Clark did it, I would forgive him and I think it'd help us both move on!) yet he's human. He has his good days and his bad days and his doubts. And in some ways, his flaws make me appreciate Clark even more, as crazy as that sounds. At the end of the day, I know that Ollie'll come back, and be the character I first fell in love with.

i agree w/ 'his flaws make me appreciate clark even more' ---- exactly!!!!! =D
Yay! I mean, it's like Clark grows up around this and he has all these powers, but he somehow stays strong in his morals and that's just awe inspiring. :D

Yes exactly!!! That's why I love Clark. And also because despite becoming a hero, he doesn't give up on real/normal life. He's still happy, despite his 'hero' side.
Yup, someone on my flist said that Clark loves humans and has more faith in humanity than we do in ourselves.

And I also like how he's one of the heros with a realllly 'normal' apple pie life who adds superherodom to his day--I think he's one of the few who have a normal life before the hero part. Although of course the being an alien thing is abnormal, I think he still 'lives' as a normal person w/ a family etc, whereas even Bruce and Tony and Reed Richards are either supersmart and/or superrich before hero-ing.
That's very true. And the thing with Clark is that he's just a hero naturally. Usually the other ones have tragic pasts and a real reason to fight crime. Clark does it just because he likes saving people. Even when he doesn't have his abilities, for whatever reason, he still puts himself out there.

I just find Clark to be so unique =DDD and I love him! =D haha
Me too! He's my favorite. :D

This!

The brilliance of Superman's creators was in giving him a 'normal' childhood (or as close to normal as a superpowered alien can have) instead of some fantastical one, like Bruce and Ollie growing up Crown Princes with billions of dollars at their command, and emotionally traumatized by their parents' deaths.

Clark is just a working-class stiff like the rest of us. ;) He understands how difficult it is to keep a family farm running, and holds down a regular job instead of being a titan of industry. He grew up among us, and learned to love us, faults and all. He's often more human than the adopted people he serves.

Clark is so genuine and honest that I love how he kind of perplexes the rest of the hero/villain community by not having their kind of neuroses/fears/problems etc LOL <3<3

Yes! I love how he can perplex the heroes as well as the villains. He's 'too good to be true', but we know better! ;)

Oliver is definitely my favorite OTHER superhero. Plus, he's not hard to look at.

In the comics and movies, I love Batman after Superman but in Smallville, it's definitely Ollie who comes after Clark!

Plus, he's not hard to look at.
That's definitely a bonus. ;)

I agree. The fact that he is anything but perfect, is what makes him interesting.
Of course his looks do help ;)

Yup. I get disappointed when he goes too far but he is human and I appreciate what he does, despite the fact he has no powers.

Of course his looks do help ;)
You know I agree! :D

In the comics, Ollie is pretty complex: he can be a jerk, arrogant, obnoxious...and kind, generous, and courageous. He's flawed, but he tries hard. He's also one of the few characters allowed to espouse a political viewpoint: unabashedly liberal! :)

Humans are generally complex and I think that Ollie proves that, both on Smallville and in the comics too!

I love that Ollie's a liberal! Me too! :D
