I Have a Question.... pt 5
How does it take you by surprise that the hairbrush is going to break on Superboy's super-butt? I mean, let's say that Superboy has done something that really torqued Pa Kent off like.... I don't know, threw out Pa's copy of the Saturday Evening Post before he had a chance to read it or something - who knows what would spur Pa Kent to violence?
Anyway, Pa's got his pantaloons in a twist and is ready to crack open a kegger of corporal punishment on his child (who, by the way, looks way too old to be spanked, but maybe that's a farmboy thing). No matter how mad he is, wouldn't the bright red and blue costume be a clue that this was going to be a challenge? After all, he had to move Clark's cape out of the way to swing the brush, so the fact that your teenager is wearing a cape just might be an indicator that you better have a Plan B.
I'm just saying.....
