Man Of Steel Kal Els suit in a cupboard
Man Of Steel is another 2013 summer blockbuster which doesn t make a whole lot of sense when you start examining it closely. Case in point, Clark/Kal finding his iconic Superman suit basically lying around in a cupboard aboard an ancient Kryptonian scout ship. Did Jor El make it for him? Had it been there all the time? Why is it so colourful considering Kryptonian s penchant for muted tones? (I like to think that the colonists dressed up in brighter garb back in the day. A bit like how we used to wear ruffs). If it had been waiting for Clark, then the suit was around 18,000 years old. So many questions for you, suit!
