Clark....Superman by CoranKizerStone Clark....Superman by CoranKizerStone
I feel that a mixture of Frank Quitely Clark Kent and Cris Reeve's portrayal of him in the Superman films to be the best disguise. When you mix that up you get a clumsy, head sunked between the shoulders, Bowlegged, slightly stuttering, might of been a nerd in highschool, cowardly Clark. I not only see the confident exterior when he puts on the red, blue and yellow tights but sort of a exhale. The chance for him to breath and be himself. To me Superman is truly who he is.

I could be wrong though...tell me what your thoughts are guys and what ya think.

I've always thought of it the other way around, actually. Kent is who he truly is. He's not confident, he's constantly nervous about every decision he has to make, and he's overly friendly and polite. Superman is the face he needs so that humanity thinks that he knows exactly what he's doing. Realistically, though, that couldn't possibly be true. I like either interpretation though!

I totally agree, he's fundamentally Clark. And the personality is what hides him in plain sight. Someone so nervous and clumsy couldn't possibly be the savior of humanity, so everyone overlooks him, and he stays unnoticed. Conceptually, I also like the take on Superman where he actually has the build of a regular human, because Superman doesn't "have" to build muscle, he's an alien imbued with super strength, so it's not like he has to be a bodybuilder (though this version isn't nearly as dynamic or striking).

I like the idea of a slightly nerdy Superman. It's kind of cool, actually.
Amazing, Clark Kent not so much as a cover than just him clumsy trying to fit into human society. Brilliant.

It's good to see an artist who gets this.

Cool unique portrayal. I like your unique style.

Both versions are something of a disguise. As Clark, he has to back down when he normally wouldn't, even in nonphysical situations where being Superman would give him little advantage. As Superman, he has to pretend he isn't a human being who likes the smell of hay or the sound of Metallica. It's only around people like Batman or Lois that he can combine the two into who he really is.

reminded me a little of Dr. Slump anime Supaman

Oh god this is so cute XD
'Fluffy' was the first word that came to mind when I saw this version of Clark. I know it doesn't fit, but he does remind me here of a work pal I knew.
