How Exactly Did Clark Kent Manage To Resume His Old Life?
As a recap for those of you with enough love in your lives to have skipped over the DCEU movies: Superman heroically died while stabbing a cave troll to death in Batman v Superman, but then he's resurrected in Justice League through the power of a plot device so lazy it's a wonder it even bothered to show up for filming.
Warner Bros. Pictures"Are we sure about this? I had a really bad experience with resurrection once."
But Superman isn't the only one who died -- Clark Kent did too. They had a funeral for him and everything. So what the hell did they say when, at the end of the movie, Kent strolls back into The Daily Planet to resume his old job? Did he claim he'd fallen down a well? Did they assume he accidentally locked himself in the pantry for a year and a half? Did everyone think Kent made a really poorly planned attempt at life insurance fraud?
Warner Bros. Pictures"The recovery time for LASIK is really, really long."
And what about the government? Kent must have been declared legally dead. What did the feds say when he showed up to do a take-backsies on his death certificate? Did they ask where he was? What was his answer?
The most absurd bit comes when you remember that the other heroes straight up robbed Clark's grave to retrieve his body. So a man everyone thought was dead comes back to life after his grave was recently exhumed. Given all the supernatural shit going on in this universe, he should've been exposed as Superman when someone logically assumed this was the start of a zombie apocalypse and shot him in the head.
