In 1993, Smallville, Kansas, had a population of about 370. They had an elementary school, a high school, a Methodist and Catholic church each, and Pete Ross was watching ET at the drive-in when Clark Kent threw himself fifteen feet straight up in the air.
Once someone’d fixed the bathroom door and mirror from the poor guy’s freak-out, Pete decided it made a lot more sense that Clark was some sort of alien, all things considered. He could hear better than anyone they knew, he’d been adopted, and at eleven years old each, having an alien for a best friend was probably the coolest thing Pete could think of.
POV-swap of the American Alien miniseries, which shows us Clark Kent on his way to becoming Superman. It also shows us a bit of what it's like to watch your best friend grow up and move out and start saving people, so I'm gonna take this angle as far as I can.
