Super Psyche

The boys over at Broadcast Thought consider some of the emotional challenges Clark Kent faced while growing up, including Post-traumatic Stress Disorder, risk-taking, and his own lineage: 

“Clark’s adolescence is a bit more complicated that that of a typical teenager. First, he’s adopted. As adopted children go through puberty, not only their bodies resemble their biological parents more, but they become capable of being parents themselves. This transformation raises questions about their own identity and can spur them to search for their parents. Also, as Clark’s body changes, he discovers emerging powers that are not only super-human, but super-scary. As if puberty wasn’t awkward enough already.”
