Superman - He Stepped Out of a Time Warp Too
When we see Clark Kent growing up, he seems to be in the mid-50's (style of cars, "Rock Around the Clock" playing). However, later in the movie Lex Luthor states Krypton blew up in 1948. So Clark would have been in high school from approxmiately 1964-1966: the Smallville scenes are way out of sync time-wise. In fact, Superman III says he graduated in the class of '65.

I'm from a small town. It seems like we're always 10 years behind everybody else.

I agree with Jaeffe. He lives in a farming community in the when he's in school, it's quite likely that they are just not so damn trendy as the big city.

Superman doesn't age differently in the comic books, and the movie doesn't present him as aging differently either. Nobody seems to think that he looks too young in the third movie when he goes to his high school graduation.

I'm no Superman historian, but couldn't he age at a different pace than earthlings. It wouldn't have shocked his family; after all, he did arrive with a meteor.

Superman most certainly DOES age differently than everyone else. One of the best DC TPBs, Batman:Dark Knight deal directly with this. You have one very old Bruce Wayne and one 30ish Clark Kent talking to each other in a field. When, later, Superman's power is sapped from being too near an explosion of a new ICBM, he ages dramatically and becomes feeble until he can rejuvenate himself from the Earth's essence.
