    Not familiar with Superman mythology, huh?

    Kryptonian women take their father's full name as their family name. Otherwise, they're known only by their first name.

    That's why we hear Clark's parents called "Jor-El and Lara", not "Jor and Lara El".

    They have all the same powers, and she keeps on teasing him that he can't fly.

    Wouldn't he wonder if hmmm, maybe I can fly too.

    They're taking the "no flights" pledge a little too extreme when it's pretty clear he should realize he should be able to fly.

    You're kidding, right? She's not that bad (see pics above).

    Why would they all have the same powers? Maybe some Kryptonians are more special than others.

    Or maybe Kal-El is a handicapped Kryptonian. A short-bus Kryptonian.

    They don't exactly have a large sample to go by...

    In HD she has a huge Herman Munster forehead, yuck. It's my opinion, they could have picked someone cuter, guess they went for the bod.

    The implication is certainly there... so far Clark's been teaching her about her enhanced abilities the same way his dad helped him.

    And we've seen Clark fly, when under the influence of differently colored Kryptonite. (I think it was kryptonite. It might have been Braniac).

    I think his block is that he was brought up to believe that people just don't fly, so his brain hasn't been able to let go of that and flip the switch.

    Yes, but you're going by what we know, not by what they know. From Clark's perspective, it's obvious Kryptonians have different if overlapping abilities (e.g., Kara can fly, he can't).

    True enough, but as you pointed out, I don't think Clark has ever met another Kryptonian on earth. Oh, and Bizzaro flew so he must suspect he has that ability somehow. So I guess I'm assuming he thinks that all Kryptonians should have the same set of powers.

    Clark has helped Kara try to control her powers you would think Clark would ask her "you think you can return the favor and show me how to fly?"

    You guys are a generation older than the demographic for this show and you won't like it if you keep dissecting it like this. My 8 year old loves it.

    These guys are the ones the show "The Big Bang Theory" makes fun of. I believe the term "arrested development" applies too.

    Hey, I don't like it NOW for the most part. :D It's only the occasional 1 in 10 good episodes that keep me going.

    The only way I survive is to rationalize and turn a deaf ear to the holes and inconsistencies.

    Also, it was mentioned in the first or second season that he has a fear of heights. So that could be a mental block as well.

    I didn't realize that (see below) was aimed at the 8 year old demo.

    On the other hand, the claim could be made that people who feel like you "aren't real fans" and "don't care about quality entertainment, willing to swallow anything they dish out, like mindless drones."

    You're probably a Luthorcorp employee, anyway. What do you know?


    :p

    A lot of people have really skewed notions of on-screen looks, where "drop-dead gorgeous" equals "pretty," "absolutely stunning" equals "plain," and merely "beautiful" equals "ugly."

    Hollywood doesn't help, by casting stunning brunettes with glasses as the "plain friend"...
