"Superman is about someone trying their best to save the world, one day at a time. And it’s about that person’s love for that one whose intellect and emotion and sheer bloody humanity completes him. It’s about Superman, and it’s about Lois and Clark. And that’s all there is. That is the spine. That must be protected, to the death." - Warren Ellis
Smallville - Ageless (4.20)
Clark: I’m from another planet. I’m not even human. Who knows if I can have kids?
Martha: Clark, your father and I couldn’t have children. We were still blessed with a son. You never know what the future will bring you.
Smallville - Scion (10.16)
Clark: I have a new found respect for my Mom and Dad. I always knew that my powers could cause harm if I misused them. But I never appreciated the responsibility they must have felt in raising me. If they hadn’t been such amazing parents, this would could have been a much darker place.
Lois: Luckily they brought out the best in you. I’m sure when we have kids of our own. You’ll be an amazing father.
