Voted For : 5. TOM WELLING

I chose Tom, mainly because he managed to keep the character alive and well for several seasons.
The others brought life to a 2 dimensional comic strip character, but Tom added a 3rd and 4th dimension.
Was it because he had more time to work on his adaptation (Seasons)?... Maybe.
I would argue that it was more than that.
Good writing stands out, regardless of the subject matter.
When Chris Reeve and Margot Kidder gave us that in tandem "flying" scene.... it was wonderful.
That scene, seamlessly, unified child and adult.
Some writers know how to work that dynamic, and some don't even know that it's important.
They try to convince adults of things, that adults are incapable of believing.
I think the writers of "fantastic" fiction, should take a good long look at Stephen King's work.
Stories beyond belief, yet engrossing because we see and experience them via the eyes of a child.
"Smallville" was a bit formulaic, but it touched the hearts of teens, and adults, remembering their teen years.

Thanks... and I thought I was rambling due to a lack of sleep.

Neither Rogert Ebert (nor the late Gene Siskel) could have written a better review.

Kudos to you, Sir!
