I clean offices for a living, so I have lots of thinking time... tonight I was thinking of a cool Smallville cross-over idea... not that it would happen outside of my head...

The episode opens with a blue and red streak plummeting through the sky and hitting the Earth outside of Smallville.  Clark spots it and races to the crater.  He leaps to the bottom and sees a fifty-something Superman (played by Gerard Christopher).

Superman realizes he is on a parallel Earth (this could be the Earth-One Supes who's prime was the mid-70's into early-'80's).  While trying to figure how to get back to his universe, a crisis arises and the two Kal-Els need to team up.

I know this is a lot like the Superboy story back up where Superboy met Kal-L as a teen.  It also takes some other elements from now classic stories and at the same time acknowledges the Smallville Clark is in an alternate reality and will never don the Super-Suit and become Superman.

Oh well... my imagination is working overtime, I guess

 I don't think they would do that simply because I think they would want Clark to decide to become Superman on his own. If another Superman from another universe shows up out of the blue (or black depending on the time of day) then it could be seen as cheapening his decision to become a hero on a regular basis.

 I have a Superboy story from the early eighties where Superboy goes into the earth 2 universe and trains a young Kal-L in the use of his powers. While this looks cool to the Superboy audience, it hurts the credibility of the earth 2 Superman in a way because it makes it look like it wasn't really his decision to become his worlds premier hero.

There are a lot of Superboy stories from the 70s and 80s that just buried any respect I had for how the character was handled, sadly, because I really loved 1950s Superboy in particular.

Davidelliot, your idea of a meeting between two television Superboys reminded me of my own proposed Elseworld pairing of Hollywood Supermen.  It might make a nice comic book tribute, but arranging all the permissions for celebrity images would be prohibitive.

Since Tom Welling is apparently averse to putting on the super-suit. the only way we'll see it on Smallville is if another actor is wearing it. I like the idea of an alternate universe or future Superman appearing, but neither seems likely.

I actually don't think Welling would even look good in the Super-Suit... I can't imagine him in it!
