Play Misty For Superboy

Filed under: superman — Tom Bondurant @ 10:25 pm
Thanks to Scans Daily and Superman Through The Ages, I have now read “Don’t Call Me Superboy!”, surely one of the most disturbing tales of super-adolescence ever published.

The story introduces us to Misty, Clark’s first love and the first woman with whom he spends the night. (Hilariously, the Kents fill in Clark’s alibi for him, figuring he was on patrol somewhere.) I really don’t want to say too much about it, a) because many of you have no doubt read it too; and b) it’s just so wrong.

However, I do agree with the Scans Daily commenters who want to see it adapted for “Smallville.” I wonder how it compares to the episode where Clark goes to Las Vegas and gets married.
