Synopsis for "True Brit"
Kal-El, instead of landing in Kansas, was intentionally sent to England. He is found by the Clarks, who, viewing a headset video found with Kal-El, learn of his origins, but mistake 'Kal-El' for 'Colin' and name him Colin Clark. Being raised stereotypically British doesn't help Colin's self-esteem, being raised to believe in the philosophy of "What would the neighbours think." When Colin's powers begin to surface, each power causes a unique problem: when he learns to fly, he smashed the ceiling, and when he acquires heat vision, he accidentally burns his mother, and is given glasses made by his father out of the glass of his space ship to contain the heat. When Colin goes to college, he meets and falls in love with "Louisa Layne-Ferret" who ignores him completely. After a tragic cricket accident (the bowler was impaled by Colin's cricket bat, the bowler afterwards said, "it only hurts when I laugh"), Colin meets the British version of Perry White, who takes him under his wing to become a reporter for the British tabloids, because his parents hated it when he used any of his powers. After a heroic save of the "Rutles" Colin adopts the secret identity and garish costume to become Superman.
