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 think the real Clark Kent is somewhere between Superman and the Clark Kent we see in Metropolis. He can only really be himself around a select group of people. People he knows and trusts with his true self. The Clark the world sees and the superman the world sees are both disguises to protect himself and those he loves.

I really like how he really carries himself so differently as the superhero Superman than he does as who he really is as Clark Kent...!

In my opinion, Clark and Superman represent two sides of the same person, rather than a mask serving one or the other. Both identities have a place in his life; Clark was the identity he was raised in while Superman was an identity he chose, and both are equally part of him. The DCAU captures this interpretation well: if Clark doesn't get to be Clark at least part of the time (and be his own person), he's not going to have the mental fortitude to be Superman. In a way, being Clark is his own release from the expectations and pressure that come with being a "beacon of hope and goodness" type hero. Clark is him as a person, and Superman represents his best attributes amplified.

WARNING! Carry on reading! Or you will die, even if you only looked at the word warning!
Once there was a little girl called Clarissa, she was ten-years-old and she lived in a mental
hospital, because she killed her mom and her dad. She got so bad she went to kill all the
staff in the hospital so the More-government decided that best idea was to get rid of her so
they set up a special room to kill her, as humane as possible but it went wrong the
machine they were using went wrong. And she sat there in agony for hours until she died.
Now every week on the day of her death she returns to the person that reads this letter, on
a Monday night at 12:00 a.m. She creeps into your room and kills you slowly, by cutting you
and watching you bleed to death. Now send this to ten other pictures on this one site, and
she will haunt someone else who doesn't. This isn't fake. apparently, if you copy and paste
this to ten comments in the next ten minutes you will have the best day of your life tomorrow.You
will either get kissed or asked out, if you break this chain u will see a little dead girl in your room ( Im sorry i got scared ;-; ) yo im sorry

I LOVE how you make them look like two total different characters using different poses, expressions, and even attitudes!
Clark seems so shy, why superman looks so heroic!
I love so much how clarks shoulders are very b ig, because he is superman), but the way he keeps them makes him look like somebody else! He seems almost goofy!
Wonderful job, really!

You got it backwards. All modern characterization of Superman boils down to, "Clark is who I am, Superman is what I can do." or "If I can't be Clark I'll go crazy." Actual dialogue from both a Superman comic and Superman TAS.

As for his disguise, I'll let Batman take that. (This is in response to an all he does is wear glasses crack). "Clark slouches, wears cloths a size too big, and raises his voice an octave"

Actually modern comics and tv shows learned how to balance the two identities, especially since Birthright and Geoff Johns work. The idea of Superman being the real identity and Clark being the real identity have slowly merged to find a nice medium. Like Mark said in Birthright epilogue: Clark is not playing a role, he's not playing at being a superhero. This is who he is and who the Kent's raised him to be. In fact here is some dialogue from Smallville:


Clark: I want to be the man that you made that suit for.
Martha: Clark, you don't need a suit the be the world's hero.
Clark: Well, when I saw those people willing to defend me, it was inspiring. It got me to thinking that, in order for The Blur to be a true beacon of hope, maybe people need to see my face, too. I've been to the future, and I saw the hero that I will become to save the city. But I also saw me -- I mean... Clark Kent -- disguised behind glasses and a bad haircut.
Martha: Well, I'm sure you still looked very handsome.
Clark: Mom, I don't how I can treat Clark Kent as a disguise. I mean, you and dad raised me to be who I am right now -- the real Clark Kent.
Martha: What's real is your strength and integrity and compassion. As long as you remain honest to those things, it doesn't matter what you wear or what name you go by, because... you'll always be my son.
Clark: So, you're saying that I should become that hero and step into the light?
Martha: Clark, you are the light.
Clark: And I should be wearing a mask. Unfortunately, I've lived my entire life up until this point without needing one. That's why I've been so reluctant. I mean, this is the face that my parents raised. It's the face of the man that you love. And I don't want to deny who I am when I'm out there doing what I was born to do.
Lois: Then why bother with the jacket, Clark, the symbols?
Clark: When I'm out there in the red and blue, and I'm saving people, that's who I really am. And I know this is gonna sound weird, but it's not what I'm called that should define who I am. It's who I am that should define what I'm called. Clark Kent - it's...it's just a name. It's just a word. I am The Blur, and I always have been.

Is that from the Superman TAS episode where everyone thought Kent had died and he has to wrestle with what that means for him and his life?  I thought that was one of the best episodes of the series.  There is also great Justice League episode where he brings the Martian Manhunter home for Christmas, illustrating that his true identity is as Clark Kent. 

This, of course, is in contrast with the portrayal of Bruce Wayne/Batman in the DC Animated Universe, both as seen early on in Batman TAS ("I am vengeance... I am the night... I am BATMAN!") and through Batman Beyond ("The voice kept calling me "Bruce." In my mind, that's not what I call myself.").

His alter ego, Clark Kent, is Superman's mocking critique of normal humanity.

I've some reservations with that interpretation, among others being that it largely ignores Superman's backstory in most continuities (save for maybe the 40s and Silver Age ones), where he was raised as Clark Kent and only begans to question his own humanity when his powers began to manifest (and his alien heritage is not something he'd immediately identify with). He identified as Clark for a large part of his life and in most respects only took on the geek persona since it's the one people are likely going to ignore (and some continuities outright state that he also happens to really be a klutzy geek). The better-written interpretations of Superman have him embrace humanity and see its best aspects (or even go as far as claim that *Clark* is the person he is); it wouldn't be in his nature to condescend at humanity that way.

Someone watched Kill Bill and didn't understand the character of superman. Clark was his identity from when he was a baby. Superman is something he made up so he can be the hero he knows he can be without putting his loved ones in jeopardy and so he can actually live a normal life without people asking him to do every little thing.
