Quotes:
From "Smallville: Lazarus (#10.1)" (2010)
Clark Kent: I died to save the world.
Jor-El: [voice] Evil never ends. By sacrificing yourself, you've left the humans vulnerable to future threats.
Clark Kent: I left a team of heroes behind to protect them.
Jor-El: You were meant to be Earth's greatest protector. Now they're about to face the greatest evil without you.
Clark Kent: Then send me back. I know my fate! To step into the light. To be a symbol of hope for them.
Jor-El: I told you to rule with strength, but you chose the martyr's path. What makes you think you "deserve" a second chance?
Clark Kent: I can do it. I can be their hero!
