The reason Welling appears after Brandon Routh in the lineup, and is wearing the year “2011” instead of 2001 when “Smallville” debuted, is because of my rules of inclusion in the print. I am caricaturing the actors as they looked when the portrayed Superman proper, in TV or film, and with the requisite year of that appearance. While Welling played Clark Kent starting in 2001, he did not actually wear the costume and become “Superman” proper until the final moment of the series finale in 2011. Thus, this depiction.
This is the seventh of eight “Supermen” from my upcoming limited edition print “Men of Steel”, debuting tomorrow at San Diego Comic-Con and onsale in the Studio Store shortly thereafter!
