watched the first few eps of superman:tas tonight, and i have to say, jor'el (clark's biodad) seriously rocks. srsly. ^______^
anyway, i wanted to ramble on a bit about how completely ballistic-ly AU earth would be if jor'el's plan had succeeded, like it should have: send everyone into the phantom plane or whatever it's called, then jor'el goes to earth and lets them all out again, and they spend a generation or two rebuilding their tech base before finding themselves a new planet. and all the humans are going "wtf?! aliens!" incidentally, i have this theory that the greek/roman gods and goddesses were actually kryptonians. all the kryptonians we've seen have had a very 'greek god' look to them, especially jor'el's family. i mean, how did jor'el know about earth and the way it would affect kal'el's biology? i think they still had stories about their ancestors (not so distant as ours from the same time-period...) ruling earth as gods. they look and act like it, for sure. jor'el would certainly fit right in! and lara's father, who is unexpectedly awesome and whose name i can't remember.... *thinks* anyway, it would not be pretty for the humans. i imagine some of the kryptonians, like the stuffy arrogant council members with the 'funny outfits of krypton' (patented right after the 'funny hats of rassilon'), would feel that they have all these powers that the humans don't, so they ought to rule over the flimsy little humans. i see lots of enslavement and being taken advantage of in humanity's future, and only people like lex and bruce would stand in the way of total control by the kryptonians.
it would kind of suck.
