Witnessing Clark's Powers
Whilst on a school bus during a field trip, Whitney was present when his classmate, Pete Ross, was bullying Clark Kent. At that very moment, the bus blew a tire and drove off of a bridge and into a river. The bus then started to fill with water and Clark ripped the back door of the bus open and used his strength to push the bus out of the river.
Shortly thereafter, Whitney and his friends confronted Clark when he was waiting for his father while reading a book on Plato. Kenny Braverman pushed Clark to the ground because he wanted to prove that there was nothing special about him. The boys walked off after Jonathan Kent approached them.
