It's just that he tries to remain inconspicous yet he wears a bright blue suit, with underwear on the outside and a big red cape. Why doesn't he just wear a t-shirt saying. I'm not gonna try to hide anymore my name is Clark Kent and I'm an alien.
Not to mention that the no collar thing is sooooo 70's. And not the good punk part of the 70's either.... The really bad, lame ass bell bottom part of the 70's.
I think it's more meant for comic's. A little easier for the artists to draw... But in real life the outfit could be so much cooler.

The suit is timeless. It's simplistic, retro, regal, and everything that a superhero needs. It's come to represent not only power and strength, but also responsibility. Would you prefer him in a leather jacket? It's friggin' Superman!
And Superman isn't the alter ego in which he wishes to be inconspicuous, it's Clark Kent, or rather Metropolis Clark. There're three aspects of Superman's personality: there's Superman, the hero; Metropolis Clark, the clumsy and shy reporter from Kansas; and then there's Smallville Clark, aka Kal-El, who's just himself.
WTF is this BS?? That the main reason for me watching the show, to see Clark grow into Superman, then at the end don the 'S', thats THE reason for the show. Smallville is a great show (most of the time anyways) but if they don't have Clark in the suit, even if its only for 2 seconds at the end in the final episode, it will be the biggest, dumbest, most retarded letdown I've ever seen on a TV show. To have a build up for 6-7 years and not have him in the suit at the end will leave a LOT of people really really pissed off and let down.

While he doesn't try and hide his appearance (mask or what ever) he still does not want people knowing who he is to protect his loved ones. What Superman does is have people beleive he is Superman all day every day with no alter ego therefore no one suspects anything. Although anyone who knows Clark and Supes would instantly know who he is by looking at him... However this is not the case in comics lol.
No, you cant change Supe's costume, its timeless, and it IS Superman, everything else is secondary.
They should just put him in a modified version of the Returns costume, but to fit Welling. It was not spandex (more like rubberish), and it looked cool, but it was still basically the same suit, except updated for today a bit.
Re: The Final Word From The Producers Regarding Batman And Welling In The Suit
I don't believe a word of this. You mean to tell me that they can't have Christian Bale do a small cameo. Or perhaps have another actor play Bruce Wayne. Tom Welling certainly wasn't Superman in that recently horrible film. As for the superman costume, that has been a stable of the superman mythos for years. Tom Welling is going to have to wear when Smallville finally ends.
Yeah that is lame that he cant ware the costume but i have read somewhere that he wont ware the costume because that stands in his conctract
