I don’t know what to make of Smallville anymore. I quit regularly watching the show around season four and since then, I’ve only seen a few episodes here and there when America’s Next Top Model reruns aren’t on (Sometimes I do girly things. Shut up.). The episodes I have seen, however, have been… not very good. Mediocre. Disturbing. Confusing. And just plain stupid. It’s a shame, because Smallville could have been awesome. Alas…

The photo above doesn’t go far in changing my mind. After all the weirdness with the Green Arrow and the Wonder Twins, let’s go ahead and add Hawkman to the long list of Bad Ideas with capital letters. I mean… look at him. As ToplessRobot.com says, Smallville’s original intent was to integrate the DC universe in subtle ways. Um… I don’t think the Hawkman costume is subtle, do you? In fact, this Hawkman looks an awful lot like the Hawkman from that botched superhero show from the 1970s, no? Take a look:

Hawkman on Legends of the Superheroes

Hawkman on "Legends of the Superheroes"

The Hawkman above comes to us from a gem called “Legends of the Superheroes.” It ran for just a couple of god-awful episodes before the plug was pulled. Movie Poop Shoot brought this to my attention years ago, and a friend procured a dvd for me. I highly recommend it if you like superhero cheeeeeze. But I digress…

The point is, Hawkman, no matter where he flies, is a giant mess. Sorry, Smallville. #SubtleFail
