If Aquaman seemed like a fish out of water on HBO’s Entourage, how’s he going to fare in Kansas? We’re about to find out: On The WB’s Smallville (Oct. 20, 8 p.m.), Superman and He Who Swims With Fishes in an Impossibly Tight Outfit meet cute in the nation’s landlocked heartland. Here’s how these two water boys compare.

Weapons Aquaman’s clawlike device that launches a suction-cupped spear.

SMALLVILLE
