Fans of 'Smallville' (Fri., 8PM ET on The CW) have waited ten years for Clark Kent to don the classic blue-and-red costume. The creators had promised that their version of Clark would never fly, or wear the costume. But, perhaps when they said that they didn't expect the show to run for a decade.
Nevertheless, Clark finally got over his insecurities and learned to embrace both sides of his heritage. As such, Jor-El presented him with the classic Superman costume while Darkseid helped him realize his ability to fly.
