BUT WHAT IF?
If Superboy had continued as a series of TV movies then it would have halted the development of Lois & Clark. This would have stopped Dean Cain from becoming Clark Kent/Superman and the actor would have continued to appear in commercials for Kellogg’s Frosties. From there he would have branched across to appearing in ads for a variety of other breakfast treats including Pop Tarts, Cap‘N Crunch and Lucky Charms. Once the leprechaun community had gotten wind that Cain was out to steal their Lucky Charms, there would have been hell to pay and the actor would have been cursed for life. He would have then struggled to find acting work, with only bit parts in TV movies offering him the opportunity to put bread on the table.
