"Former Lord of Hell - - which is something any schmendrick can add to his resume these days." (1)
-copied from here.
In Kick-Ass, and maybe also in Smallville, it is like "former superhero" is something any schmendrick can add to his resume:
Lana Lang has become super-strong and super-fast;
Lois Lane has a very brief costumed career as Stiletto;
even Doomsday acts like a vigilante!
It looks like even the showdown with Doomsday is to happen before Clark becomes costumed. How will various people who know Clark not recognize him as Superman?
