Smallville

Every Thursday night at 8:00 on Channel 5 (CW) one of my favorite television shows is on: Smallville. It is a show about the coming to manhood of the comic book legend Clark Kent, otherwise known as Superman. For the past 8 years I’ve been watching this shows seeing this high school freshman, Clark Kent, turn into a reporter at The Daily Planet.  While Clark is unlike the rest of us in his superpowers such as super-speed, super-strength, super-hearing, x-ray vision, heat vision, and simply human invincibility, he constantly faces struggles similar to ours. With these powers he saves lives, fights bad guys, and always does the right thing. But there is only so much he can do. Loved ones still die, friends still become enemies, and things or people he holds close to his heart still change all around him. Even the man of steel has a hard time dealing with emotional pain. No matter how strong we are, or what we can do, everyone will suffer at one point. Though kryptonite may be his only weakness, I think Clark most definitely has another one, just like the rest of us: his heart.
