Clark Kent's New "Uniform" on Smallville

In last night's episode of Smallville, "Shield," Clark began to don the next stage of his uniform on his way to the Superman outfit. What do you think?

It looks nice. reminds me of the Kon-El Superboy for some reason. I like how its an updated version of the classic Smallville Outfit that Clark used to wear before season 9: the red jacket and blue t-shirt. very nice updated to that look and I'm glad they decided to go that route.

Personally, I don't think it really suits him. I prefer the old costume, because it gave him a bit of a larger than life feel. This just makes him sort of look like a greaser. I dunno, maybe it will grow on me.

I definitely appreciate the fact that they're trying to evolve things, but I think that jacket needs a little blue in it. Maybe a blue "S"?
LEEE777 - 10/2/2010, 7:35 AM
Oh god, tell me thats FAKE???

He's gone from THE MATRIX to FLASH GORDON ??????

Plz NO CW, GEEZUZ! : P

Wicked find tho @ ED!

Hey Elvis, nice suit!

Cant wait to see what the haters think.

I have a feeling "shit show" and "smallville sucks" will appear soon.
IrfonW - 10/2/2010, 7:37 AM
preferred the black one. It needs more blue to........
LEEE777 - 10/2/2010, 7:39 AM
Smallvilleisgood @ Can you blame them?

By the way, try watching the original 3 or 4 seasons and watch it now! Smallville is not good, well all the time, anyways it should be awesome being the last season an all! : P
Smallvilleisgood - 10/2/2010, 7:47 AM
@Lee777 well I can blame them for commenting on smallville articles when they don't like the show :P. If people don't like smallville I respect that.

I think it looks a bit gay, especially the hair lol.
IrfonW - 10/2/2010, 7:47 AM
To add, is it me or does the pictures make the jacket look like it's a woman's jacket
imnotwearinghockeypants - 10/2/2010, 7:48 AM
Hahahahahaha! That shit is hilarious! Dead Michael Jackson would be proud.
LEEE777 - 10/2/2010, 7:52 AM
Smallvilleisgood @ You got a point lol, still its all in jest with most! : P

Yeah the hair looks well gay, ya rite!

Seriously if someone photo shopped that picture with WELLING blonde, he'd be FLASH GORDON! : D




I don't get it... if he's wearing the shield on his chest may as well have the real deal and stop pussy footing around???
epitome - 10/2/2010, 7:56 AM
Uh... last time I checked red leather jackets are for chicks and effeminate musicians (Prince, Michael Jackson, etc). Sorry, but I think this looks cheesy.
GUNSMITH - 10/2/2010, 7:56 AM


TRUE SMALLVILLE DID HAVE ITS HIGHS AND LOWS BUT ULTIMATELY, IF PEOPLE REALLY HATED IT THEY WOULDN'T BE WATCHING IT.


BY LASTING 10 SEASONS, THAT SAYS THERE'S AN AUDIENCE..PEOPLE WANNA SEE HIM AS SUPERMAN, WHY NEAR THE END OR WHEN THE HEROES APPEAR DID THE RATINGS GO UP, ITS WHAT PEOPLE WANTED TO SEE FROM THE GET GO, NOT SOME TEEN ANGSTY DRAMA ,


ANTICIPATION MOUNTS, PUT THE DAMN SUIT ALREADY, FLY ALREADY, SHOW SUCKS, SHOW ROCKS. WETHER POSITIVE OR NEGATIVE PEOPLE HAVE TO SAY SOMETHING AND JUST BY SAYING SOMETHING SHOWS YOUR PAYING ATTENTION TO IT...
SpideyQuad - 10/2/2010, 7:57 AM
And he bought this jacket in what store? And once he becomes Superman people won't remember him wearing this or his tee-shirt because ... of his glasses?

Just seems a bit too simple to me?
Tc - 10/2/2010, 8:01 AM
I love Smallville but i hate this costume lol looks rediculous
Smallvilleisgood - 10/2/2010, 8:02 AM
@gunsmith caps really necessary?

Yeah Im interested to see where he got this jacket, knowing smallville it wont be explained.
JoshWilding - 10/2/2010, 8:02 AM
I've not watched the episode yet (but I will later today) but I like this. If nothing else, it's a step in the right direction, and much better than that damned black trenchcoat and t-shirt! :P Thanks for the pics ED!
EdGross - 10/2/2010, 8:03 AM
If he wears the costume at all (which I think WILL happen), I don't think it's going to be until the last episode. The feeling seems to me that Clark Kent becoming Superman is the end goal of the series, so they won't allow him to do so until the last episode.

Still, I think they could have done better than this red jacket. Like I said, Blue "S" and blue shoulders may have made a difference.
Souperboy45 - 10/2/2010, 8:03 AM
Well remember guys, he doesn't actually know where the real one is. He didn't even know it left the barn with him because it went right after him in Lazarus.

Good find Ed. I'm glad someone gave it some recognition.

I think it would look better with Yellow than blue. Maybe make the middle of the "S" yellow, and those shoulder things blue.
chris915 - 10/2/2010, 8:04 AM
I like the costume. It shows that he is evolving as a character and going from being hidden in the shadows with the black trench coat to being in the light of day and becoming the symbol for justice we all know him to be.
GUNSMITH - 10/2/2010, 8:05 AM

@SMALLVILLE-ITS KINDA WHAT I DO. CAPS ARE MY FRIEND.
kitboy33 - 10/2/2010, 8:05 AM
Hugh Jackman called..he's pissed at Tom for dying his x-men jacket red!
number10 - 10/2/2010, 8:05 AM
i like it! cant just shove a pair of tights on!
SpideyQuad - 10/2/2010, 8:06 AM
"Look! Up on that building!"

"It's a Parkour!"

"It's a "Breakdancer!"

"NOOOOO! It's SUPERGAY!!!"
WaylonJones - 10/2/2010, 8:07 AM
I with JoshW its not the real deal but at least he is not dressed all Emo n stuff any more.
WaylonJones - 10/2/2010, 8:09 AM
P.S. When did Clark find time to be an expert in the art of making leather jackets?
skullboy - 10/2/2010, 8:09 AM
thumbs down Pictures, Images and Photos

I like it.

Prefer this over the plain red jacket and blue shirt or the all black outfit.

If his not going to don the cape yet, I'd rather see this.

Like I commented before, I think it's less about the "uniform" and more about him stepping out of the shadows. Which by the way this particular episode's underlying theme was about.

The black suit didn't give off any inspiration of hope; which superman is all about. The cape and tights do, but until he puts them on - I think this comes a bit closer then what he was wearing before.

In the end, I'm not part of the shows design team. So i figure just suck it up and enjoy the last season. Whats left after it?

Ordinary family?
manthingnitsuj - 10/2/2010, 8:11 AM
g to the ay.
YourMomNaked - 10/2/2010, 8:11 AM
The spray painted "S" and trench coat made "home made" sense. The red leather jacket made by the same manufacturer Ollie uses also makes sense, I guess, but I don't care much for it. He should have told Jor El to [frick] off and smashed the shit outta the glass case @FOS and took the suit his Mom "made" for him.

The producers told us to expect another transition suit before he puts on the real suit, but I wasn't expecting this. UGH! I'm sure there are plenty of people that would want this, so I'm sure WB/DC/Smallville will market it. It doesn't suit my style and I don't think it suits Clarks, either. Oh, well. It is what it is.

Hopefully they'll give him the real suit during sweeps.

CENSORSHIPSUCKS - 10/2/2010, 8:13 AM
That is the dumbest thing I've ever seen. They have been milking this Clark-can't-fly-and-hasn't-gotten-his suit-yet thang for far too long. It's the last season. Give him his suit already. Geesh.
BLADE4040 - 10/2/2010, 8:14 AM
It looks CORNY, but that's just me Im sure some people probally loved it. I see we keep getting these watered down version of great SUPER HERO\VILLIAN TEAMS. It sounds better than it actually looks like on screen. It's cool to say DOOMSDAY,JLA,or JSA is going to appear on SMALLVILLE until you actually see it. Hey it beats nothing I just wish things were done better and closer not exact(exact would be GREAT ) to the source material. Sometimes their sooo far off into left field I dont even recoginze the character. jUST PUT THE DANG SUIT on and FLY before the last 10mins of the season's final show!!
TheSisko - 10/2/2010, 8:14 AM
Lol poor Welling goes from whiney emo to Supergay.

On a Serious note they should give Clark the real costume already. I mean we all know he already has it,becuase Lois snooped around the barn.

What happened to Smallville? I wish the show would stop trying to compllicate everything and just simplfy itself, they way it was when they show began. This suyit shows that the current TPTB are trying to hard to keep Clark from being Superman...
marvel72 - 10/2/2010, 8:14 AM
hi ya smallville fans,guess whos back ?

hahahahahahahaha!

do ya still think this gay shit still good,do ya.

i think clark out for the night his going to the gay bar,gay bar....GAY BAR!

they the creative team pulled out all the stops for this season.

they've run out of superman foes to f*ck up,so its time to start on other charactors i.e batman & the teen titians.

best season ever maybe,but definetly the funniest.
LEEE777 - 10/2/2010, 8:17 AM
The jacket is [frick]ING LAME!

End of... GEEZUZ CW needs shooting! : P
Smallvilleisgood - 10/2/2010, 8:17 AM
@deadpool

I think you should wait till the end of the season before you say they run out of superman foes to [frick] up :P.
WOLVERINEDECADE - 10/2/2010, 8:18 AM
@ACCESS
where have you bee, man?

lookin all over this site for you...

tagal mo nawala tol...
IronicMan - 10/2/2010, 8:19 AM
I can't believe all these morons calling it "gay." Do you realize how the original suit looks? Superman's been a gay icon virtually since his first appearance.
And love the jacket.
