Smallville: Add Your Views
Superman
Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's a high school student in a T-shirt and jeans.

A new American TV show, broadcast on the Warner Brothers network on Tuesday, depicts Superman as a teenage boy, initially unaware of his super talents and without his trademark tights..

"It is, in effect, another soap about pretty young people. The plot gets bogged down in a sentimental boy-girl storyline", wrote the BBC's entertainment correspondent in Hollywood, Peter Bowes.

He added: "But die-hard fans of the Superman franchise will be intrigued by their hero's early days - albeit recently contrived."

What do our American readers think of the new-style Superman? Is this just another teen soap? Or a prequel that does justice to Superman's legendary status?
