Classically, one of the first signs that you may be outgrowing comic books is when you realize that if you really had x-ray vision, you’d be peeking under people’s clothes all the time. This is a thought that mainstream comic book writers and artists used to try not to draw attention to… normally.

So, my question is, now that we’ve established that Superboy does, in fact, look under people’s clothes just for the hell of it… Gosh, there’s no easy way to ask this… Why is Lana Lang on this cover? And why is Clark more curious about what new-kid-in-town Gary Crane has under his shirt than…

Well, I guess by this time Lana, how shall I say this, holds no mysteries for him.
