Not as long as it was shown as being. That growth was more than one month's worth. Also, Matrix made Clark's hair be as long as Superman's since it appears they all knew Clark [the real one] would next be seen with that same hair length.

Or one of Superman's robots, since Silver Age elements are being restored. \:\-D

Then again, we STILL don't have a final answer on whether or not Matrix ever existed. (Even if the Pocket Universe didn't she could have been created in the mainstream DCU, and have a slightly different origin, but still end up becoming Supergirl for a while.)

Duh, but for both Clark and Superman, it's one month even if it looks longer than a month. Like I said, both DC and Marvel began the one month theory for story arcs during the early 90's. The events of the Knight Trilogy over in the Batman books was said to have been a month or two. Yet we clearly see large passages of time.

Uh, Clark had been tested to determine if he was in fine physical shape. So unless Clark made the robots to be 100% organic enough to fool a doctor, I'd doubt it. J'onn, like Matrix, could.
